Our Mission 

Acting Up is committed to inspiring positive social change by empowering youth. We're dedicated to providing a fun, interactive environment that is focused on inclusion, free expression, and non-judgement.



Acting Up programming is a combination of performing arts and emotional intelligence development components.

Our classes, lesson plans, and after school program are focused on teaching students how to build strong social skills with an emphasis on performing arts and creative expression.


We provide training for Radio, Film, and Stage. The Studio offers kids and teens a place to grow, expand their confidence, and express themselves while enriching their lives and the lives of their families and community. 

We hope to inspire youth to reach for their dreams regardless of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds and help them to build strong relationships, succeed at school and work, and achieve their career and personal goals.
