    our take

    Kids looking for a future career in acting will get a good head start at Act with Purpose. Their camps are perfect for building self confidence, honing acting skills, and getting kids ready for a life on the stage. Of course, kids don’t have to be drama kings and queens to partake—everyone is welcome at this very fun and creative camp. What’s unique about Act with Purpose is that it is a full-service performing arts school, meaning kids get lessons, coaching, workshops, plus career advice and support. The team here is very skilled in what they do, starting from Founder John Stevens, who has over 30 years in the industry and has worked coaching actors for many years. He brings quite an exuberance to the place, one you’d expect out of someone leading a performing arts studio, and his students are quite vocal about how special he and the rest of the team are. He’s helping people achieve their dreams and does it without any arrogance—just a pure love of acting.

    I've known John Stevens for as long as I can remember & even 10+ years later, he's still helping people achieve their dreams! This is someone who has quite literally dedicated his career & life to focusing on others and assisting them in being successful.

Not only do you get to experience the joy of acting, but you have a wonderful team alongside you that hype you up, check in on you, & truly listen to your goals and do everything they can in order for you to achieve those goals.

    Private coaching from a professional acting coach can be an invaluable tool for actors looking to develop their skills, hone their craft, and take their performances to the next level. In a private coaching session, the actor will receive personalised, one-on-one instruction from an experienced coach who will work with them to identify their strengths and weaknesses and help them develop strategies for improving their performance. Our coaches can help the actor prepare for an upcoming audition or role, providing guidance on script analysis, character development, and performance technique. Additionally, our coach can offer valuable feedback and insight into the industry, helping the actor navigate the business side of the profession and develop their career goals. Self Tapes: Booking self-tape sessions with one of our professional acting coaches can be an excellent way for actors to elevate their audition performances, stand out from the competition, and increase their chances of booking roles. In a self-tape session, the actor will work with a coach to prepare their audition material, ensuring that they understand the character, the scene, and the story they are trying to tell. They may also provide guidance on technical aspects such as lighting, sound, and framing to ensure that the actor's self-tape looks and sounds professional. By working with a professional coach, actors can gain valuable insights into the audition process, receive constructive feedback on their performance, and improve their chances of success. Overall, booking self-tape sessions with a professional acting coach can be a smart investment for actors looking to advance their careers and take their performances to the next level!

    Over 30 years in the Film & TV Industry

    So often really great artists come to me, but they have no idea how the industry operates. So, I give them the tools and knowledge to make their artistic side profitable. On the other end of the spectrum, I have great business minds come to me to develop their artistic abilities to match their level of marketing savvy. You must master both sides for your career to have traction and longevity.
