Professional athletes don't stop training once they're out of college, doctors have to engage in continued education each year to keep their license, and one class doesn't make you a master carpenter. We want all our students to continue to hone their craft, have people who will push them hard enough to get better, and cultivate an educational space for those always ready to learn more.
A forge is a workshop for a blacksmith. Forges are full of hard work, consistency, and craftsmanship. It's not easy molding metal. Hammering away at a project isn't for those who give up easily. The Forge is for those who are here to chase dreams, make careers out of thin air, and smirk in the faces of those who said they couldn't.
If you're looking for a school that will pat you on the head and tell you good job, whether you're getting better or not, we're not for you. We are here to train the actors and filmmakers who are ready to do the hard work, stay consistent, and fight to be better at their craft day after day.

Can I audit a class?

I missed a class! What do I do?
We want to make sure you have a good experience, so we'll do our best to work with you and your teacher to find a time to work with you. If there isn't a time during the week for that to happen, you can always take that specific class out of the session again.
If you have enrolled in a class or intensive and you are no longer able to attend, students have to send us a cancellation in writing. Refunds are not given if the class/intensive is less than 7 days from starting. Once we receive your email, we will refund your money with a $35 cancellation fee subtracted from your original payment and placed back on the original card you paid with within 48 hours.
