Become an Actor

It’s you and it’s not you: in our professional acting classes, we work on your body, voice, and mind with modern, improvisatory techniques that allow you to take on characters with honesty and skill.

Your body holds your voice, mind, breath and senses, providing your means of expression and communication.

The Voice: We work on your breathing, voice and clarity, accent and diction in Hindi, projection and register.

The Mind: To become a truthful actor, you need to access dormant parts of your mind, so your thoughts, mood and emotions are working together.

Acting is doing. Students are challenged with acting exercises, scene work, and film shooting experience. Improvisation is vital part of all of these.

BJAS has been a great experience for me. Honestly, since I was a kid I used to pass by and I used to look at Barry John Acting Studio and I always wanted to get into BJAS and learn acting. I finally got this privilege and I’m really happy with my decision because I’ve learnt a lot, not only about acting but also about life.

Barry John Acting Studio was a very good experience for me, actually. In the past six months it was more than an acting course. I would say it was a life workshop - for me at least. BJAS is really great as they give you vast experience in the field.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide accommodations?

No, we don’t have a hostel facility in Delhi or Mumbai. But we work with local PGs at a range of prices and can help you find a place.

Do you offer installment payments?

In Mumbai, courses must be paid in full before the course opens. In Delhi, we allow a second payment (50%) no later than a month after a course opens. See our Admissions Page for the details, or give us a call.

Do you have placements?

Getting hired through an audition depends entirely on your performance, so we cannot guarantee work. We work with casting services in Mumbai to help you get listed, and we send graduates to auditions from our in-house casting service.
