Six Degrees is dedicated to fostering and furthering careers by preparing students with the confidence, knowledge, and tools needed to be successful working professionals.

The 6 Performance Academy provides comprehensive and rigorous training in theatre, film, television, and voice-over performance offering a wide variety of classes and workshops for actors of every age. Award winning industry professionals use years of experience on-set, on-stage, and on-mic, to engage with small groups of actors in individualized, feedback-style instruction and critique, while pushing performances and careers forward using the natural strengths, abilities, and instincts of each student. With a focus on technique, readiness, and specificity, actors are challenged to find their personal approach to the work, and to reach their performance potential.

“We don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.”
