Many coaches can show you how to act, but at AMI we teach you the business of acting, that extra something to stand out. One of the first things a casting director will notice about you as an actor or performer is confidence. Many actors and models have lots of talent, but are unable to show it off when they’re out of their comfort zone. Our goals at AMI are to provide an education and environment in which you feel safe and comfortable enough to develop your craft. We also want you to get past your fears of stage fright or public speaking. From many years of experience in the industry, our exceptional instructors have the tools to equip you with the knowledge and strength to be your best and let your talents shine. We want you to believe in yourself so that others will believe in your art too!
It also takes a lot of business sense to make it in the industry; this is something often overlooked and not taught in many acting schools. AMI offers classes and workshops that take into account the business of acting which can get you where you need to be. Whether you’re pursuing commercial work, film acting, presenting or just extra work, knowing how the industry works and how to market yourself is a must-have skill set and you will find it in everything we teach.
At each stage of development, students’ classroom knowledge is evaluated through performance projects, scene work or front-of-camera performances. Students who excel may be invited to join the VOX Talent Management, which offers professional performance opportunities, often in the presence of casting directors, agents and other industry professionals.
AMI connections have been developed with national and international curriculums and educators in film, television and professional theaters worldwide. The growth of our international reputation has been remarkable by any measure, offering our students opportunities across the globe.
