Matt Dearing changed how I looked at acting, and in turn changed my life

Actor And Comedian

"Dearing Acting Studio is an amazing place to hone in on your craft! This place is top notch and literally like a family! Best acting school hands down. Don't believe me? Try it!"

AJ Crane

"My daughter just finished the movie camp at Dearing Acting Studio and it was AMAZING! She had a wonderful time, made friends, and learned so much. The people at Dearing Studio are incredibly enthusiastic, and clearly, LOVE what they do."

Dawn Waheed

"I can’t yell loud enough to get your attention … Dearing Acting Studio is remarkable for both Actors … and Humans! It is a brick and mortar Treasure Chest of Talent, Tools and Heart geared towards more than “Lights, Camera, Action!”. For myself, as both an Actor and a Business Owner, the benefit of my time at Dearing Acting Studio is immeasurable. At Dearing, you learn truthful connection, you learn techniques, you learn about yourself and finally, you learn to get out of your comfort zone (in a safe and fun environment). It is like being a kid again! There is no end to the courses, there are no degree or certificates to be had … and no promises of stardom! What you get is tools, a confidence, a truthfulness, revved up empathy and for most; a few hours of carefree joy and learning each week!"

Howard Bland

"We’ve had a fabulous experience at Dearing! My kids learned a ton, gained so much confidence and really enjoyed every single class. My kids felt welcomed and encouraged from day one. The instructors all do fantastic work and we highly recommend them to anyone!"

Stephanie Starks

"Dearing Acting Studio has helped me in so many ways it's hard to put into words, honestly. I walked in to this studio a little over a year ago as someone with a little experience in musical performing arts but completely brand new to acting. I was immediately welcomed by what I now consider my second family, and with the instructor's guidance and the entire studio's support and encouragement I was fortunate enough to be in their Master class. They gave me a new passion in life and goals to work towards. A place to make huge glorious mistakes and learn from them. The Studio has made me a more confident person on stage and in life and I can't possibly thank them enough. If you've always wanted to master a new skill or just want to learn how to overcome social anxiety (like me), Dearing Acting Studio is the best place to be!"

Josh Lind

“Matt has a way of breaking down the areas in need of improvement while simultaneously building the actor up. He reminds his students that there is no end point in the art of acting- it’s a continuous, never-ending process and thus we as actors must find joy in the constant grind of improvement instead of focusing on crossing out x,y, and z on the to-do list we’ve created for ourselves that we believe must be completed before we can be considered a successful actor.”

Jada Warner

"Dearing Studio is a special place. The instructors are incredibly talented and encouraging. I've learned things I never even knew possible and stretched myself as an actor. It is the premier acting school in the Valley - and their shows/comedy are spot on."

Michelle Fortin

"Dearing Studio is the Michelangelo of acting studios. Best in the valley."

Ben Davis

"Dearing Acting Studio is top notch and run by great people! The staff is super friendly, professional and caring. Love this place! I recommend to anyone looking to hone in on their craft."
