Common Questions

Q:  Is John Robert Powers an Agency?
A:  No, we are not an agency.  John Robert Powers is the premier Performing Arts Academy.  We offer classes in acting and modeling as well as social graces and etiquette.  We do not provide jobs or castings, only training.  Our California schools are licensed and bonded in accordance with all state laws. 

Q:  Does training make a difference?
A:  All the difference in the world. The entertainment industry is fast-paced and constantly changing. Busy professionals vastly prefer a well-prepared candidate to one who lacks polish, experience, or training.

Q:  Will this interfere with school?
A:  No. We believe that a solid academic foundation should be a young persons first priority. John Robert Powers New Orleans policy is to work only with those who strive for academic excellence.

Q:  Why Do Agents and “Industry Professionals” come to John Robert Powers schools?
A: Agents, managers, and casting directors, meet current John Robert Powers students for their new and upcoming projects.  They know that John Robert Powers produces “industry educated” clients.  That applies to both the students and their parents. So when agents and managers are wanting to add to their client roster or book their next project, they will not be wasting their time interviewing hopefuls that do not have a skill set or parents with the wrong right mind set.
