You’re curious, down-to-earth, you seek out honest, no b.s. people just like you. You crave real connection and genuine community.

You’re looking for more,  and your current path just isn't cutting it. Maybe you’re bored in your 9-5 or lost in “what ifs”. You’re ready for something to change, now.

You haven’t yet found a place to study acting that engages you, energizes you and feels like home. Acting schools make a lot of promises- but who are they and what are they really offering?

You have a lot of choices when it comes to acting training,

So how do you decide?

Montage is a woman owned and operated community-centric training program that cares; about you, the world we live in, and building a future that includes art, connection and creativity.

We’re here to help you make your dreams become your reality. 

We’re fully online, with live classes grounded in the fundamentals of the craft and business of acting, committed to authentic, diverse instructors and students alike. 

We are entirely focused on giving you the acting education, business tools, personal development, support & guidance you need to begin an acting career or bring a positive change into your life. 

WITH MONTAGE YOU WILL

Build a strong foundation in the craft of acting.

Receive personal and professional development tools to make your dreams a reality

“Without question, the best part of the program is getting to work with people who are brave and willing to try something. It is life-affirming to know that every week I'm spending time with people who are pushing themselves beyond their comfort zone, risking looking foolish, but really trying. And trying feels like being fully present in your life. I've made friends and community even during a time where we are all supposed to be six feet away.”

 

Ryan Ken 

Certificate Program Student

"I feel like I have a support system. There are several instructors who know me well and can answer questions/give advice. Kate meets with me regularly and I feel like I have a mentor who is guiding me."

Monica Hiris

Certificate Program Student

"I decided to enroll in the certificate program to improve my public speaking and teaching skills. I am a PhD student and prospective professor, so this skillset is essential for my career. The certificate program at MAS has been instrumental in improving my ability to connect with students in the classroom."

Mircea Lazar

Certificate Program Student

We take a different approach than other  acting programs.

The Montage online certificate program is a one-of-a-kind actors’ training program where YOUR story takes center stage.

A Unique Community

People from all walks of life come together to study acting. Get ongoing opportunities for learning, growth and support in our family-like community.

Dynamic and Responsive Classes

We make things better, listening and changing as we go.

Like good actors, at Montage we listen to our students and respond.  We are always adding new classes and modifying existing ones to make sure our students get the training they want and need. 

For People with Lives

You’ve got more going on than just acting class. 

The Online Certificate Program is built with the busy adult learner in mind. We make it easy for you to pursue training and have a life, too.

Personal & Professional Development

We understand that acting is more than just art; it’s a mindset too. 

The Personal and Professional Development aspect of our program, with our founder and leadership coach, Rachel Bellack sets you up with the tools you need to thrive in your life, career and relationships.

LET OUR STUDENTS TELL YOU WHAT IT’S LIKE

The Montage Online Certificate Program

Our online certificate program is designed to help you unlock the power of your gifts, and use that power in your work and life. It’s a deeply transformative experience. Here’s how we do what we do:

1.

Small Group Learning 

You'll be placed in a small cohort of fellow actors for the duration of the program. You’ll learn together as well as support and hold one another accountable.

2.

Live Weekly Instruction 

Held on weekday evenings at 7pm, our LIVE, 100% online class sessions are led by world-class instructors from a broad range of acting and teaching backgrounds. Students will take a maximum of 2 classes per week.

3.

Experiential Training

We approach acting training wholistically.  You’ll participate in live training, experience seminars, workshops and valuable one-on-one coaching to make sure you internalize and absorb your education. There are monthly meetings with your cohort to offer more training and opportunities to bond and connect. 

Our Students Love Us... A Lot

I’ve grown immensely

- Kristen Thornton

"I couldn’t ask for a more welcoming and supportive environment to work through the fear and vulnerability of putting myself out there. I’ve grown immensely in the far too short class time and look forward to the next one. Classmates, most feeling equally vulnerable, have been nothing short of incredible while offering positive support, feedback, and a willingness to be open to learning from everyone."

Who We Are

Montage began as the Michigan Actors Studio, a state licensed trade school serving students locally in the metro-Detroit community. Our goal was to provide state of the art training for both established and aspiring artists here in Michigan. When we started, there weren't many affordable and professional options to study acting locally. While the short-lived Michigan film boom created a lot of small studios that flourished and then died when the incentives did, we were able to not only survive, but thrive. Why is that? We think it's because our teachers and staff are committed to two ideals that are at the core of who we are. One: that studying the arts is empowering and two: creating art in a safe space can be life-changing. If you haven't studied with us before, you might be surprised to learn that in addition to acting training, our students often find lifelong friendships and the momentum and support to make positive changes in their lives.

Can I claim from my medical aid/insurance?


DocPrivé by Century Medica is a registered healthcare provider and all the services are on a self-pay basis. We do not work with any medical aid at this moment in direct payment.




Can you prescribe antibiotics?


Antibiotic use is regulated as overuse can contribute to resistance of bacteria in the person who has consumed the antibiotic inappropriately. Antibiotic resistance is a serious problem as there will be very few treatment options that can be used to treat infection in that particular individual. At DocPrivé, all our doctors are professionally trained in the appropriate use of antibiotics, which is why we will not put you at risk by prescribing antibiotics to you unnecessarily. Should our doctors feel that antibiotic is warranted in your case, we can prescribe or will refer you to appropriate providers.




What kind of medication can you not prescribe?


1. Any medicines classed as controlled or restricted drugs/substances under the MEDICINES AND RELATED SUBSTANCES ACT 101 OF 1965 and all its’ amendments;

2. Unlicensed medications;

3. Sedatives or sleeping tablets;

4. Strong analgesics;

5. Medications that need to be initiated by a hospital specialist. We are, however, able to refer you to see a relevant specialist with a medical referral (we charge for referral letters, see our Costs).




What if my consultation lasts longer than 20 minutes?


In our experience, 10 -15 minutes is sufficient time for most of our clients. Should you require a longer consultation, let us know towards the end of your session to book a follow up appointment. Booking instructions and payment will be emailed to you for confirmation and we will call you back at the earliest available opportunity. Unfortunately in-session extensions will not be possible at this moment. Your doctor may, at his/her sole discretion, decide to extend your session when conditions permit as a courtesy.




Can you post/courier my medication to me?


At this moment, we do not yet offer this service. Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list so that we can keep you updated of new developments. We can, however, advise you on the medication you can purchase at pharmacies nearby or send a prescription to you (see cost)




Is this service available even when I am outside of South Africa?


Yes! You can request for a call back and chat with our doctors worldwide. Please make sure that you provide a valid mobile number/ landline or Skype account when booking. Please see the list below for covered countries:
