What is Excel?
Excel is a trade school for aspiring Models and Actors across the region. Students begin with our introductory programs, then continue their education through one-on-one coaching with our on-staff educators. Excel is located in Little Rock, but many of our students travel from across the state.
Why do I need Acting and Modeling classes?
In the film, television, and modeling industries you will be auditioning alongside trained and experienced talent. Classes and coaching ensure that you remain relevant and competitive. Even big name stars have private coaches throughout their careers. The art of modeling and acting is one that you will continue to grow and prune over time.
What happens next? Do I have to relocate?
Many students begin with our introductory programs then continue their education through one-on-one coaching. Once you are determined audition-ready we will begin to connect you with management in the region of your choice. Many of our students remain in the southern region and work on national films and commercials right here in Arkansas. You do not have to relocate to work in the industry, but if you choose to do so we will support you in every way possible. Excel graduates span from Los Angeles to Europe and we love to connect our students to graduates working in the industry.
Will Excel find Modeling/Acting work for me?
