May I audit a class?

While we don’t offer audits, prospective students are more than welcome to schedule a Studio Tour or a quick visit to meet our Team before one of our Ongoing Classes. Prospective Students can also schedule a drop-in appointment to attend an Ongoing Class for $45/class. These are all great ways to get a feel for the Studio as well as meet our community. We also encourage you to try out one of our Workshops that are also helpful for getting to know the way we work.

What is Showcase?

Students perform in Showcase twice a year for industry professionals. Local Casting, Agents, Filmmakers, Producers, and film community members watch as the students present a scene or prepared piece for them.

This is a great way to get scouted for TV/Film and representation. Students MUST be taking Ongoing Classes in order to participate.

Students are often paired with scene partners or are in an ensemble and cannot drop class 2 months prior to showcase. Please note that you must agree to be filmed and/or photographed as many students use Showcase for their portfolios.

What is the age range for adult classes?

Adult classes are for ages 18+.

For kids 17 and under, please visit www.actingforkidsandteens.com.

How do I get headshots?

The Studio NW partners with talented photographers in the region who often offer a discount to our students. Students receive emails and offers from TSNW from time to time.

Students are also welcome to get started by booking their own photographer. There are many to choose from in the Portland area! Jennifer Alyse is Coach Katie’s fabulous photographer. Let Jennifer know that you are a TSNW student.

When booking a photo or video shoot be sure to wear solid colors and arrive with fresh, clean hair and make-up.
