What makes the acting school at TVI different then most renown conservatories? Besides the faculty unquestionably the most recognized industry professionals in New York and Los Angeles, since 1986 TVI has always had a team of well trained, talented, industry respected actors that mentor acting students before and after classes or during the acting students off-time.
This special attention from the TVI Actors Studio career coaches sets the acting school apart from other well recognized schools in New York, Los Angeles, London, Moscow and Sydney.
