The breadth and depth of our training enables individuals to discover their authenticity, express themselves and free their talent.

Our Purpose

HCAC exists to free your talent. We empower people to unleash their creativity. Because we believe those who embrace their artistry – actors, writers, thinkers, dreamers, visionaries, entrepreneurs – are happier, more fulfilled and more successful individuals who make the world a better place. For actors, specifically, we endeavor to provide robust and varied training of an international quality to prepare you for success on the global stage.

Our Unique Approach

  • Teaching tried and tested acting techniques.

    We are the only school in Asia to teach the work of Lee Strasberg as it was intended. Our workshops explore acting methodologies that have been tested and proven for generations.

  • Emphasizing the practicalities of acting.

    We provide training that meets the needs and wants of the industry. Our students are well poised to apply their skills and learning in any real world scenario.

  • Inclusive and accessible workshops.

    We customize our teaching pedagogy according to the learning needs and goals of all individuals, regardless of their background, training or experience.

  • A global network of educators and directors.

    We work with teachers from all around the world and they are all experienced leaders and specialists in their respect fields.

  • Three-way feedback between student, teacher and peers.

    We believe in active learning. Fostering communication between teachers, students and peers ensures the sustained growth of the work and our school.

  • Freeing the talent of our students.

    We don’t believe in grading talent. Instead, we want our students to explore the subjectivity of their own personal expression.

  • We keep our class sizes small.

    We want each and every student to benefit from the undivided attention of the teacher. Our workshops have an approximate student-teacher ratio of 10:1.

  • Creating an intimate family environment.

    Here, everyone is family and we know all our students by name. We celebrate each other’s work at the end of every semester and support each other by attending shows by our fellow members.
