It was a really great experience! I wanted to try something new. I had never really acted before but I do have a flare for the dramatic. I always knew I had a knack for acting but seeing myself on the screen really have me the confirmation I wanted and the tips I need to be even better!

For a beginner, I think the Essentials Class is great for learning exactly what it is called - the essentials of acting. In taking it a number of times, I was given more challenging exercises over time. So, even if you want to take the class more than once, it would be definitely worth it to progress even further. Even if you aren't a total beginner, the exercises can be made more challenging for you. I highly recommend it.

Mark Stolzenberg makes this class fun for anyone, whether a newcomer or a veteran. He gives pointers throughout the class either before someone does his/her part before the camera or reacting to the part just done. All pointers and help are given to improve the actor's performance. He also opens it up to class members to give their opinions on another's performance. I recommend anyone to take these classes either as a trial or to stick with it.

Great class! Awesome atmosphere with the perfect guru. These classes are amazing. The best part is it's all on camera and you get to see and discuss with mark at the end of the class what can be done to make it better. High recommended.

An amazing, inspirational class. Great learning experience. I took the class because CBS recommends it and I really happy that I did. I am a professional film actor and I highly recommend this course. I am going to sign up for a whole year program. Mr. Stolzenberg is an amazing teacher and a genius at what he does. He has great communication skills and he really cares about all his students. The class was a bit full but he managed it well and I learned a lot from watching other students work. The one class I took was chock full of information closeup work, eyelines, projecting your voice on camera, how to be believable, auditioning tips, and using subtext. I am already auditioning better after just one class. A couple of students came in late which was a little disruptive. If you want to be a film and TV actor, you must study with this guy. He will get you working in the industry. Reviewed by a professional Screen Actors Guild Member

This is probably the worst class i ever took it says intimate and you can recieve attention from your mentor that the average class is 9 people meanwhile up to 20 people walk in. How am i supposed to recieve any attention in such little time with that many people there the class is from 7pm to 9pm they should be strict on coming in on time meanwhile people walk in an hour late and interupt class and have to catch them up on what they are doing. And there are no requierements they mix in people who have more experience with people that have no experience and just eat up the class time. I literaly did 1 min of acting in a 2 hour class i would not recommend this class to anyone save your money.
