Acting WORKSHOP (BEginner - intermediate) - $425

This 5 - week online course will cover many areas of performance including character development, scene study, and overall acting techniques for use behind the camera or microphone.

I will also be giving my personal knowledge of auditions, agents and demo reels from my decades of experience in the acting community.

This class focuses on traditional acting and allows you to tailor your experience to your own interest in acting.

Testimonials for Alexander Polinsky


Over the years I have had the pleasure of studying acting from a lot of truly gifted teachers. I have studied from Academy Award nominated actors to local artists and this was an intense and immensely satisfying course. Alex demonstrates a love and respect for his craft and that is infectious throughout every session. His feedback is strong but not negative. He builds your skills on your strengths and provides insights into your performance that develops the skills to become a successful actor/actress. Without reservation, I strongly recommend this class to actors of all levels of experience from novice to seasoned professional.

Alex, you are great to work with. You care, you are honest and you are not only are a great teacher, you really know your stuff. I recommend anyone who really wants to be a voice over actor to study with you, do a demo and go compete against you. This workshop was an exchange in abundance... it gave us all a taste of what we can do if we want it... now the rest is up to us. You made it so much fun and has made me love my acting career more because it is a fun job.

Alex, thanks for the workshop earlier today. I confirmed things I figured I already knew and learned a kajillion things that I didn’t. It was so informative. I used your advice about exploring characters and voices and making tiny adjustments to ones I already knew to create 5 other versions within that one. I seriously came up with about 10 semi-solid voices just on the way home! Completely new ones! I look forward to working with you again soon. Thank you thank you thank you.
— Doug
