What Sets Us Apart

Simply put, our workshops are taught by real industry professionals who work everyday of their lives in the entertainment industry as film directors, writers, producers and working actors  (and they make the drive from LA to the OC to teacher here at The Performer’s Academy.

Our classes DO NOT COST THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS….nor should they. We have affordable monthly programs with menu pricing. You pick the class or classes you want to participate in and pay as you go and stop when you wish.  You are able to freeze your program for extended absences and make-up any missed classes.

Most of our students come to us on a referral basis from current, past and present students.  Many Los Angeles Talent agencies refer their OC clients to us for continual training and privates prior session prior to an audition. We can tape and submit auditions for these students as well.

We have current industry knowledge since our teaching facility is still very active in directing films, producing, acting in and doing voice over work.  You can check out their resumes on the “industry bible” called imdb.com

Natalie’s Story


This school was created and has continued to flourish because I made every mistake there was when I thought that my daughter was cute enough to model and do commercials. I am a mother of a now 23 year old daughter. When my daughter was 5, I attempted to get her an agent and get her in the “biz”. She was really cute and very animated. What I did not consider was her shy personality (only around others) and her mule like personality (and I say that lovingly).

Everyone told us she reminded them of Brook Shields when she was young. I thought why not give it a shot. I had her when I was 37, did not even think about what college would cost, so I thought that if she booked a commercial or two, she’d have a leg up on tuition.
