About The Acting School of South Florida
Say what you mean and do what you say.

Thank you for establishing a place where actors can come and hone their skills and leave knowing they have met an extended family. Acting is not something that I dream about is something I am living out everyday of my life.

I like the way Michael answers a question in a clear and direct way and the way we started off with simple scenario and have made steady progress since.  I feel myself evolving as a actor.  After every class, I walk away with something new to think about, but I never feel overwhelmed. Todd is brilliant as an instructor and is a consummate professional.  Sara is very passionate about acting and I love that.  She is so good with pointing out  the little things.  I am learning so much. Again thank you for everything..

I looked around and found that The Acting School of South Florida was the only program in South Florida offering a complete conservatory approach to acting. These two years of training have been invaluable to me.

I really appreciate the feedback throughout the classes on things that I did well on and things that I needed to work on.  . . it has opened up a new chapter in my life for me. I am really glad that I came. I found the classes to be very fulfilling and very fun. I went to this class just to see if I would like acting and to see where it takes me; and I left the class not caring where it takes me. I love acting; I will keep doing things that make me happy. If this is what I'm supposed to be doing, it will happen. Don't let fear stop you from moving forward. If youre thinking about it, just do it!

Founded by the former Director of Training of The Acting Studio and The Actors' Conservatory ~ Hollywood, Florida,
The Acting School
continues a tradition of providing quality training for the professional actor.

The philosophy of "Training First" is the fundamental principle underlying all the classes at The Acting School.
Our name reflects a basic, no nonsense approach to the process of acting.  The key words of; discipline, commitment and persistence inspire students to expand their skills in an environment of exploration and discovery.

Working Professionals Present First Hand Knowledge and Experience.  The Acting School's Team Approach of Component Training offers the Actor an Adaptable Means to learning Process and Technique.

What is Adaptive Acting?

and must adapt to the changing circumstances, moment to moment.

I cannot say enough about the tools I acquired such as Discipline, Professionalism, Teamwork and the drive and eagerness to maintain an incredible work ethic at all times. . . The Acting School knows how to help you realize your dream...Let them do it.

Through continued course work at the school, I am able to practice and keep my skill level challenged. I truly appreciate the forum of The Acting School where I have on going support to develop in the process of being an actor.

Without the foundation that I received from the incredible instructors at the Acting School of South Florida, I never would have been able to get to that next level that we are all searching for. The training that I received from Michael Gioia, Miriam Kulick, and Kim St. Leon, enabled me to be accepted into the advanced program at the T. Schreiber Studio, one of the top acting schools in New York, where I continued my studies with Lynn Singer. If you are going to study in South Florida, the only school is...The Acting School.

Christopher Kauffmann

There is a high degree of integrity practiced at The Acting School, where the teachers are first rate, and I still find it invaluable in maintaining a preparedness for acting.
