That ain't real, you knowSo . . . you okay?Nicole's Back2 out of 3 ain't badNeed a private moment?

I had an incredible experience with The Acting School of South Florida and I recommend the faculty and classes to any of my fellow actors who are in need of a fresh approach and want their work to be truthful and compelling.

The Acting School has a warm, caring, unpretentious environment and everyone makes the students feel like family. It has and continues to be one of the best experiences in my life.

The Acting School has not only helped me gain the knowledge that I need to act, but has also helped me as a person. These classes have provided the confidence that I need in order to proceed anything. All of the teachers, provide the experience and the education that an actor needs to be a professional actor.

It is wonderful to be in an environment where our teachers not only love teaching but love sharing their passion with us. It is very comforting to see that we are not alone feeling what we feel towards acting . . .
I am so thankful for everything you do for us. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

The Heritage of The Conservatory Training Program

The Conservatory Training Program, founded  in 1995 by Michael Gioia,
was initiated as an experimental curriculum at the South Florida Theatre Institute.

The curriculum was expanded in January of 1998 and established as
The Actors' Conservatory ~ Hollywood, Florida.

In November of 1998, the program became the cornerstone of The Acting Studio,
as the Conservatory Training Program, where it flourished until March of 2003.

Since May 2003, the Conservatory Training Program had once again been reorganized as the nucleus of The Acting School of South Florida.

The program was retired in the Summer of 2011.
