ABOUT ACTORS CENTER FOR TRAINING

Founded by Beth Craig Hall in 2012 and headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky at St. Matthews Station, we train professionals in the entertainment industry. Actors Center for Training also provides a collaborative workspace for actors to create, meet, rehearse and perform. Plus, we can take the skills that make actors successful and apply them to the professional world by providing services that help with public speaking, presentations and, most importantly, MEDIA TRAINING. Lastly, we offer corporate professional development programs.

 

We are a WORKING actors studio. At the Actors Center for Training, our talent of all ages and skill levels are prepared to work, audition, perform and apply to prestigious schools and programs. We are the go-to team to get ready for that audition because the Actors Center for Training coaches will stay with you to make sure you are ready for ANY opportunity.

 

Basic things like competitive headshots, basic on camera skills, and training that trains actors and performers not just a stage actors were things needed to keep talent working. I am passionate about talent and believe whole heartedly that our region has the best talent we sometimes just need help packaging it. 

  

In the past year we have had such a request for beginner basics and the burning question— “How do I get started?” Well- ask and you shall receive.  Actors Center for training has developed our On Camera Essentials class of Teens/Adults and Youth and our Hit the Mark coursed for commercial and on-camera acting for teens/adults and youth. We are piloting our Shooting Stars class for tiny performers ages 5-9 in Louisville and hope to add the class to our other cities in 2021. These additions will help build those essential foundations as the students explores the industry to find where he or she best fits. 

 

In addition to new classes, we are expanding to Indianapolis and Cincinnati so our students do not have to travel as far!! By expanding in these markets we can now offer the same great training and elevate the region. LA, NYC, and Atlanta will have excellent choices and our local markets will thrive! Arts elevated! 

 

We are so excited to offer these opportunities and look forward to seeing you in class!
