Teen and Adult (11 & up) beginners should start with an acting Basic Acting Series: Star I -Organic & Natural & Star II – In-Depth Character Study or On-Camera Class. Improv is also a wonderful place to start to gain confidence and start relating to others, as well as building basic acting skills in a fun way. Improv is a terrific and fun way to begin to build confidence and trust your instincts, the basics of all good acting. Audition Intensive 6-Weeks is a great place to start as a sample of a lot of different aspects of acting.  Plus, try Dallas’ best acting camps on for size.

Kids (age 8-11, or 7 with good focus skills) should begin with Kid On-Camera. A great way to start is with one of Hartt and Soul’s summer acting camps, which are rated as Dallas’ best camps.

Kiddies (age 4-6 )should begin with Privates.

Advanced or Professionals should look at the Star II (In-Depth Character & Scene Study), On-Camera & Audition, 6-Weeks, or Private… or 1-Day Improv or 2-hr Intensives.

Auditions should definitely have a private prep (or prep and tape at the same time if you need a self-tape).  Many great professionals work with their coach before every audition or every shoot date.  It’s a competitive field…keep ahead of the rest of the competition!

For Personal or Business Confidence and Power, try the Star I-Organic & Natural Course, Mindset Intensive, Improv Intensive. Private Acting or Life Coaching.  Also, there are lots of awesome positive mindset training videos and mp3’s on the Online 12 Week Crash Course and tons of inspiration on the Monthly VIP Training and Webinars.

Fast Track is for those who are like me and really want to be the best really fast!  You can take more than one class at a time.  I suggest supplementing a Star I or II with an On-Camera or Audition Intensive.  Try adding a private every few weeks or every month.  Those who show up the most are usually the ones who win!

***The Ultimate Fast Track MUST DO –  Hartt & Soul Online Courses (See “Online Classes” under “What We Offer”)***

      1. 12 Week Crash Course (a great 24/7 supplement to your in-person classes –  over 150 training videos plus more)

      2. Monthly VIP Training & Webinars (bonus training videos, bi-weekly live webinars & actor community that holds you accountable…will keep you moving forward)

STAR I – ORGANIC & NATURAL (Ages 11-Adult)
This class focuses on the special qualities and creativity unique to each student. Attention is paid to building confidence and basic skills needed as a professional performer, which are necessary tools for succeeding in life in general. Basic foundation-building for acting, creativity, being organic from the inside-out, development of personal power and confidence, sensory work, getting into the right focus and creative state, freeing the body, staying in-the-moment and techniques to set the student free. This is, also, an excellent class for building confidence in daily social situations or for inner exploration for any young person or adult. Each student has a different reason for being there. Many people just want to free their souls! Finally, we believe everything should be fun! Next step is Star II. (Most kids, 7-10, should start with the Kid On-Camera Class.)

The natural step from Star I. Special attention is paid to exploring professional techniques to master interrelating with fellow actors and directors, in-depth character and scene development and improvisation. Learn to create and bring to life the “backstory.” Also covered are objective beats (breaking a scene down), imaging, dramatic function, subtexting (thinking like the character) and staying in the moment.  We focus upon making it real, going in-depth the way pros do and popping into some of the quick tricks that can get you there fast. Also great for those looking inward and wanting to free themselves from the blocks we all build up in life. Next step is On-Camera & Audition.

  • Make Up Policy for Star i and Star ii class will be made up for free by taking the corresponding class in the next session of that same course. (Ex: if the 2nd class in the Star I is missed, you would take the 2nd class only of the next Star I.) It is your responsibility to call and find out what the make-up date would be.


ON-CAMERA & AUDITION (Ages11-Adult…on-going as we continue to evolve)
This is a favorite class for beginners or pros. It teaches all aspects of on-camera technique, auditioning, cold reading, being natural and spontaneous and feeling free in front of a camera. The first four classes concentrate on being natural in an on-camera scene and learning how to work close-ups and other camera shots. The fifth class is a commercial or broadcast class. The last class, we focus on shooting an on-camera audition for L.A. Ms Hartt puts many people on tape for agents for L.A. auditions and is known for getting people to go from “Dallas acting” (which looks like acting) to L.A. acting (which looks like a reality show in spontaneity). If you are going up for on-camera auditions, you need to be “in the gym” with an on-camera class to keep your edge and naturalness. This has become the most popular on-going acting class. It’s great to learn new technique, get more sophisticated, scrape off bad habits or to keep your “chops up.” You can hold your spot for the next session as we continue to evolve from session to session.

KID ON-CAMERA (Ages 7-11) (will consider age 7 with exceptional focus skills)

The last class, Ms. Hartt puts them on tape like she does the auditions she does for L.A. auditions. The kids love creating and seeing themselves back on tape each week.

KIDDIES (Ages 4-7)
