The Bizness of the Business class is a 3 hour dedicated seminar that covers all about the Business of Acting.  Nancy does this as one of her Wildcards in the beginning of the year, for her students.  Several agents have reached out to ask if this was available to all actors, so this year, Nancy is going to offer this as a one time seminar!  Everything your agents want you to know, everything you didn't know you needed to know will be covered, as well as a question and answer session.  The business changes so quickly, this helps you keep up so you aren't learning through painful mistakes.  Email Nancy if you are interested!

Nancy Chartier offers private coaching sessions & taped auditions. She will provide feedback on any topic across the industry & make suggestions.  Auditions are taped in Studio or through Zoom, where Nancy will direct the session, edit footage, & send that via email.  The cost is $75/hour


The Studio


Nancy Chartier Studios is a safe, creative, home to actors that are brand new to the industry as well as veterans who've been carving out their career for years looking to get out of their comfort zone and be challenged.


NCS training is based on the Meisner Method. It's a very natural way of acting and encourages the actor to trust their instincts and be in the moment, organic, and real. Often Nancy will get feedback from parents and agents saying they don't want cookie cutter acting robots who "perform", and check out mentally while acting. "With the base of Meisner, I absolutely love the unique colors my actors are bringing to their work."
