Einstein said it: Everything is constantly evolving. So why are we still teaching acting classes as if nothing has changed in the last 70 years?

IT’S REVOLUTIONARY. It’s what you always knew Los Angeles acting classes could be: FUN, EASY, EMPOWERING.

The first step to starting your journey with AMAW Studios is to take our Foundations Course, which is not an introduction to acting, but an introduction to how we work at the AMAW studio. Once you complete the course, you are eligible to continue with On-Going and Mastery Scene Study Acting Classes. We also offer Elective Classes in many locations that do not require the Foundations Course as a prerequisite.

NO repetition exercises or endless hours of scene rehearsals with your partner who’d rather be at the beach. NO memorization (“Learn those lines, dammit!”), drilling objectives or imbuing objects with personal meaning (“This coffee cup reminds me of rainbows.”). It’s just you being your great self. Refreshing, huh? So how does it work? Come watch us work. It’s free and fun!
This 6-week LA acting class meets twice a week: one working class and one lecture/observation class. The course introduces actors to the fundamentals of the AMAW philosophy and our way of working. A major shift takes place during this period – faster and more tangible than any other acting program.
After graduating from the Foundations Course, actors are evaluated by their instructor and placed in one of three Phase Levels for ongoing, month-to-month instruction. At every level you will be challenged to explore story more deeply and discover more of who you are as an actor, creator, and human being.
Actors have mastered the fundamentals of the AMAW philosophy; they are producing professional level work in an environment which is provocative, instinctual, community-oriented and “ego-free”.
At AMAW Acting Workshops in Los Angeles, you are great simply by being you!
20 years ago, Anthony opened an acting studio in Los Angeles that was created from the desire to teach actors in a new way. At that time, most acting classes in LA still relied on very traditional approaches to the work that had been established over the last 100 years. Although important and meaningful, those methodologies were a throwback to an era that today’s actors are no longer living in. Anthony started integrating science, philosophy, consciousness, meditation, and very simple, refined approaches to the work that got actors out of their heads very quickly, into their bodies, and allowed them to have a much more visceral, dynamic, truthful experience. It essentially became spiritual. Since then, the AMAW acting philosophy has spread all over the world.
AMAW Los Angeles acting school does more than just create bad-ass actors. It has fundamentally changed the way people view acting, approach the work, understand creativity and ultimately live their lives.
