Teens/Pre-Teens Acting Classes

"'Taxi Driver' was the best thing that ever happened to me, and I didn't become a weirdo and squawk like a chicken"- Jodie Foster (12 during Taxi Driver)

Since 2003, Next Actor Studio offers on-camera Acting Classes in Houston for teens and pre-teens between the age of 9 - 14 years. 8-year olds with previous training may join the pre-teen classes. We encourage our matured and/or trained teens to choose the more advanced classes with adults. 

Our session is a unit of five classes, except during holidays when we have four week session at a pro-rated fee. Classes for young adults are usually held on Saturday evenings in front of the camera and performances are taped for parents to watch.


We introduce Stanislavski Method Acting exercises at an early age to help students develop the habit to think logically and create characters that are textured and layered, so that every gesture and moment on frame becomes thoughtful and deep.


Through improvisation exercises, monologue and scene study, students are taught the difference of theatre and film acting as well as trained in the technical aspect of acting for the camera. As the students progress to more non-beginner levels, they start learning and applying the Method. on-camera acting classes for teens in Houston film and television acting for teens in Houston


Starting January, we are also going to introduce film study and film production as part of the curriculum to make students understand the process of filmmaking so they can make choices accordingly.

Advanced teen students, who have previous on-camera training, and who are interested to pursue this as a career, may select the Stanislavski Method Acting session with adults.

Serious students are always able to get many opportunities to get cast in several projects and build their IMDb credits and start their on-set experience. Casting info is available for students via our yahoogroups which parents can access using their yahoo email.
