EXPERIENCE

Donald and Dean have cast over 400 projects together, working in all genres of film, television and new media; when you come to Ataraxia you will never have a question unanswered; they can talk to actors no matter what their age or experience to get their best performance.

PREPARATION

Our mantra is the one thing an actor can control in the audition is to be the most prepared actor that casting sees that day. That applies to actor’s both young and old. Our classes will show you that being prepared builds confidence and when you have confidence it leads to call backs and bookings in the room.

FUN

improvisation makes you be able to think quick on your feet, knowing your material before you enter the room allows you to focus and be able to listen to casting; and when you are having fun doing it all: CASTING WILL NOTICE! Ataraxia is a place for fun and learning and that will lead to SUCCESS!

Welcome to Ataraxia……a place for kids and adults to learn and enjoy the acting process. Located in an idyllic setting walking distance from old town Calabasas, this is a creative space that offers diverse classes for all ages. Founded by Casting Directors Donald Paul Pemrick and Dean Fronk, they bring their “friendliest casting office in town’s” atmosphere and apply it to their teaching. Ataraxia means peace and tranquility in Greek and we hope you will find it here. No matter a young beginner or a seasoned veteran actor that wants a tune up, there will be a class that suits you. We hope you will find it here and flourish.
