LA Acting School - About AWS
Around for over 25 years, The Actors Workout Studio is a Los Angeles acting school that offers a safe and challenging work environment for the beginning or professional actor. The Studio is dedicated to training and preparing actors for professional work in the film and television industry. Classes are small and very individualized. Everyone works—every class.
Owner and Artistic Director of the Actors Workout Studio, Fran Montano runs one of the longest running small theaters and acting schools in Los Angeles, which has received more than 20 production and theater awards. He founded the Actors Workout Studio to be an intimate and inspirational creative community, where both aspiring and working actors can explore and discover new tools and resources to expand and accelerate their artistic journeys. Fran’s students range from brand new beginning actors, to accomplished working actors of all ages in film, television, theater and new media. He coaches not only actors, but also writers, directors, and other creative professionals who want to learn acting techniques that will improve and advance their own craft.
Classes at the Studio include Scene Study, Cold Reading, Improvisation, On-Camera Scene Study, Meisner Technique, and many other techniques designed to address the specific needs of the individual actor. Class members are also able to audition for parts in award-winning theatrical productions that are regularly staged in the Studio's two theater spaces.
