Youth Talent Program starts on September 14, 2013!


Young actors possess natural instincts and ingenuity. Our Young Talent Program focuses on enriching and guiding these unique gifts. Our instructors provide a foundation and add structure. Students learn to make strong intuitive choices in their work and apply their creative abilities to requirements of any professional environment in the entertainment industry.

In addition to training and education, F.A.B.A. provides actors with opportunities to meet Talent Agents, Casting Directors, Filmmakers, and Producers.
Our fun learning atmosphere is deigned to improve self- confidence, self- awareness, communication and listening skills, focus and concentration.

Classes are kept small (6-8 students per instructor) in order to make sure each student gets the attention and opportunity they deserve.

Instructors provide Parents with Resources and information about the Film and TV Industry.
