A New Approach to Actor Training

Do you feel successful as an actor or is something holding you back from the life and career you desire? Have you gained some great skills but feel like you can't put them into play due to lack of auditions, bookings or self-confidence?

For over 8 years, IYA Studio for Actors has been an artistic community and training ground for experienced and up-and-coming actors! We believe acting starts from the inside out! Utilizing the power of improvisation, elements of life coaching and a supportive community-based approach to training, we will help you:
