Dearing Studio Program

The best actor in the room is the best listener in the room. We teach hyper-listening through ever evolving techniques that allow our actors to “live their truth” while in front of the camera, on-stage and in their daily lives.

The two core concepts from which everything is built are Script and Improvisation. We are not interested in a good performance. In fact we are not interested in “performance” at all. We engage in truth which is where ‘great’ lives – and ‘great’ is something we are very interested in. Great scripted work should look, sound and feel like improvisation; like the actor is creating the lines from thin air. Great improvisation, in our studio, should look, sound and feel like a scripted play that has been precisely blocked and rehearsed.

Once students have progressed through these concepts there is a master level course that brings it all together. These simple yet profound ideas are at the heart of every program from the Master Class and Core Curriculum to the Teen and Youth Programs. We believe in developing a hunger for mastery at every level and every age. There is no beginning and there is no end to our program because we simply think there’s a better way.

As a studio we will always be evolving, therefore the curriculum and the growth of our student’s cannot be held captive by superficial levels. At Dearing Acting Studio there are no gimmicks, no excuses, no glass ceilings. You will see the difference and love our process or your money back, guaranteed
