Career Building Opportunities and Working Opportunities for our Actors
About the Acting Philosophy and Acting School in Los Angeles
The Michelle Danner Acting Studio recognizes that every actor is unique. In our Los Angeles acting classes, we will teach you to develop your very own toolbox called the Golden Box. You will be given the opportunity to accumulate a comprehensive set of acting tools based on Meisner, Strasberg, Adler, Hagen, Chekhov, the Stanislavski Technique, when approaching any potential role or a scene, whether it be for film, television, or theater.
This acting school offers individual acting classes, and students may select from our list to create a customized program for those interested in learning the craft at a more accelerated pace. It also provides M1 visa sponsorship for international actors.
Our students are encouraged to take risks and work on challenging and daring material that will stretch them as actors and push them beyond their limits.
Working Opportunities For Actors That Are Part Of Our Well-Rounded Actors Training Intensive:

The classes we offer at the studio are taught by professionals in the entertainment industry and provide serious instruction in the subject topics. Many students enrolled in classes at the studio have gone on to audition and/or participate in theater and film projects whether in front of the camera, on stage or behind the scenes. However, we cannot and do not make any guarantees about your ability to work in the industry in any capacity or earn any money doing so. Each individual’s success is determined by their own talent, training and effort and motivation, but also by many outside factors. That is the nature of the entertainment industry.
Please note that although our studio offers many opportunities to participate in a variety of projects such as the film festival, web series, plays, shorts, and feature films, there is no guarantee that any student will be selected or that the timing for such opportunities will coincide with their time attending the studio.
