Training @ ECT

Elysium Conservatory Theatre offers a unique alternative to the typical L.A. actor training experience. A wholehearted celebration of fearless artistic expression, ECT provides emerging artists with clarity of craft, professional empowerment and a lifelong, artistic home and community.

A Conservatory Theater at its core, ECT looks to break down the barriers that have slowly created a gulf between the evolution of the professional artist and the training of students in the performing arts. The Elysium Conservatory—ECT's premier training program—envelops the actor with a myriad of the world’s finest performing disciplines—unified through the prism of our core technique, The Acting Matrix.


Taught in a committed and nurturing environment, we look to offer what no other acting program in the country has—a dynamic cycle of growth and mentorship that lays the foundation for fearless creativity throughout an artist's career. Taught by ECT Company Members who fearlessly challenge their own artistic boundaries, students are empowered and mentored to walk into the world as creative leaders - armed with knowledge of every aspect of their performance process. ECT also offers monthly Acting Matrix Intensives that take place in a retreat type atmosphere. We stand by our training and invite all successful graduates of the utmost talent, work ethic and collaboration to join our Membership.  

Formed by professionals of multiple performing disciplines scratching and clawing to grow new levels of fearless expression, Elysium Conservatory Theatre offers emerging performing artists a creative Eden committed to fueling the next generation of American art with visionary work that fearlessly rattles the foundations of modern performance.
