Why we offer Sample Classes in place of Auditing
We would like to offer actors who are not yet familiar with Penny Templeton Studio the opportunity to participate fully in a Sample Class that offers real learning, real teaching and hands-on personal attention. We do not allow auditing for our regular classes because we feel it disrupts the learning process for the actors who are paying for the class. An observer in class becomes an audience and when actors have an audience they perform. Class is about working on your craft, exploring who you are, growing, trying new things, failing and getting right back up, and learning to take big risks. An “audience” impedes that process because no actor wants to fail or look bad in front strangers. But, that is exactly what actors need to do in class if they want to grow and learn. Our Sample Free Acting Classes allow actors who are not yet familiar with the studio to fully immerse themselves in the process and learn some valuable acting lessons. Learn who we are, what we do, and how Penny Templeton approaches the craft of acting: – Through actual experience not merely observing. We limit participation in the Sample Free Acting Classes to 1 (one) class in each category. While we hope you will want to transfer your experience to one or more of our regular classes, there is absolutely NO obligation to sign up for a class.
