The Young Actors Studio aka Dallas TV & Film Workshop, Inc. was founded in 1987 and is the nation's first non-profit 501(c)3 TV/Film/Theater and Media/Filmmaking Arts organization for children. It has provided arts experiences, classes, education, and performances for several thousand local youth over the past 30 years. It is nationally known and respected by top colleges for its excellent educational arts program and by TV/Film industry professionals and entertainment companies.
Our creative young actors and filmmakers gain new perspectives and better understanding of their world through the varied experiences in participating in artistic projects, performances, stories and their characters. They learn the creative thought process that benefits them not only as an artist but in their own lives, in social skills, relationships, decision making, goal setting, problem solving, collaboration with others and self-confidence. We provide this in a nurturing, encouraging and creative environment in our studio facility that fosters friendships, positive role models and embraces artistic personality and diversity. Children who are considered at-risk, special needs or have learning differences have thrived in this wonderful arts organization.
Join us in our mission to change the world one child at a time through the Dramatic Arts & Filmmaking Scholarship.
