Acting Classes in Paris

Our Essence

In the heart of Paris with a conservatory approach our company prepares actresses and actors for film and theatre. We pride ourselves with a collaborative ensemble approach.

We are a small company of no more than 40 actors, 2 teachers and 1 guest teacher. This intimacy provides care and security, empowering and enabling our students to grow and develop.

We offer a comprehensive training which includes character development, script analysis, acting on camera technique, relaxation, voice and body work. We devise and create our own performance pieces throughout the year. We have created a repertory feel, and have emerged as the bilingual home for English speaking actors in Paris.

Our Classes

The three main classes offer the methodological techniques from Strasberg, Adler, Hagen, Stanislavski, Meisner, and Yat Malmgren. We also include specialist instructors throughout the year to work on voice and body. The three main classes provide 10.5 hours of intensive and rigorous training and this is inevitably extended due to rehearsal exercise.

If you have a passion for acting, furthering your professional training or preparing for auditions into leading drama schools, our classes are for you.

Our Productions

Every year, the Acting Ensemble is committed to performing before a live audience at least one full production of a play or devised piece.

The success of these productions has encouraged a dedicated following of theatre lovers in Paris to the Acting Ensemble, who are excited to see theatre in English that is innovative, challenging and creative.

J’ai eu la chance de faire partie du groupe Acting Ensemble et d’interpréter le rôle de John Proctor dans Les Sorcières de Salem de Arthur Miller. Je n’avais jamais joué en anglais au paravant et j’étais très stressé. Heureusement, lorsque je suis arrivé, au delà de découvrir des acteurs très talentueux, j’ai rencontré des gens incroyablement gentils et très bienveillants grâce auxquels j’ai pu très vite me sentir en confiance. J’ai également été suivi de très près par la metteuse en scène qui à fait un travail remarquable et qui à réussi à voir en moi un potentiel que je ne soupçonnait pas. C’est donc grâce au support de l’ensemble de ce groupe que j’ai réussi à relever ce défi. Je suis très fier d’avoir fait partie de ce projet et je recommande vivement cette formation! Merci encore pour tout.

I’ve had the privilege of studying under both Alexa and Clarence for the past year and it has been nothing short of an incredible and transformative experience. Their unique teaching styles and insight complement each other’s classes greatly, enriching all aspects of acting, making both classes an absolute blast and worth delving into and exploring. The care and attention that they provide creates a very nurturing and comfortable environment. The Ensemble is composed of a truly wonderful, caring, and diverse group of people that I feel truly lucky to have met and learned from, and I absolutely recommend it.

Working with Alexa has changed my life ten fold on a professional, artistic and personal level. When I came to her as a relatively inexperienced actor I struggled a lot and Alexa through her time, effort, empathy and expertise helped me in the right direction. She encouraged me to find my own individual sense of self, strengths as an actor and embrace my uniqueness. I will always come to her for coaching and advice and I couldn’t recommend training at Acting Ensemble more. Anyone would be very lucky to get a spot and get the chance to work with her or Clarence. I am beyond grateful for Alexa’s help over the years. Aggy K. Adams

Having recently had the privilege of being under Alexa's tutelage, I can confidently affirm that she epitomizes the essence of a phenomenal teacher. With an innate understanding of how to nurture and propel her students toward their full potential, Alexa's guidance is nothing short of transformative. Her dedication to each individual is palpable, resulting in a level of coaching that is both meticulous and deeply caring. What sets The Acting Ensemble apart is not only her expertise but also the harmonious synergy fostered among its members. Comprising a diverse array of talented actors from various nationalities and age groups, the Ensemble operates as a cohesive team, where support and collaboration reign supreme. It's a testament to Alexa's leadership that such a dynamic and inclusive environment thrives.

I signed up for the Acting Ensemble in order to keep refreshing my tool kit as an actor while moving to Paris. I am so lucky lucky to have found the Ensemble, and I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with both Alexa and Clarence. Each have their own style of teaching and bringing out the best in their actors. They are both passionate about the craft and skilled at compassionately guiding their students to new levels of performance. It’s been a privilege to be a part of the Acting Ensemble this year.

Joining The Acting Ensemble has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in 2023. They took in a non-actor like me and gave me a direction to proceed with my dream of acting. They create an environment that allows you to be at ease with yourself and explore the characters. I eagerly look forward to Tuesdays evenings now. ❤️ Working with Alexa has been such a great experience, and she works tirelessly to give her students the best she can. ❤️ Highly recommended the ensemble to learn acting.

Alexa and Clarence run this company with love and enthusiam and it really shows, there is a lot of extra time added outside of class if needed and the scene work is precise and profound. They select every member very carefully which creates a lovely and talented company. A lot of new friends and workmates in the making ! I highly recommend signing up if you want to refine your acting skills and stay trained while in between gigs. Fantastic experience

The environment Alexa creates with her approach and choice of actors for the company is the most supportive & safe one I have ever experienced as an actor. It is a joy to work on one’s craft here. Thank you, Alexa and company!

For me the Acting Ensemble quickly became my second home in Paris. I came to Alexa and Clarence without professional training, and they instantly created a comfortable and fun environment in which I was able to start finding myself as an actor. They continuously help you to develop and push your boundaries. Not only them, but the community is amazing as well. I have made some wonderful friends that I can count on even beyond class.
