Certified Acting Professional (CAP)

Most of us have fantasized about what it would be like to be an actor at some point in our lives. For many, this thought ends there. Some of us, however, consider how we might make that thought a reality.

The Certified Acting Professional Course provides a thorough overview of the many aspects of the performance industry, introducing exercises designed to engage your voice, body, heart, and brain – the same essential skills found in some of the world’s leading performance training programs.

You’ll be guided through vocal and physical warm-up techniques, character creation and development, and text analysis – examining character motivations, emotional expression, relationships, and the internal and external factors at work.
