At Arise Acting Studio, we’re shaping and transforming lives by teaching life skills through stage skills in a professional, non-competitive envioronment.

IN 2007, my wife Erica and I, both actors, moved to the Dallas area and worked for other schools and programs with little to no flexibility in creating the art and the atmosphere we wanted for the students and ourselves. We got a loan and used some savings to open our first location. Now we own and operate multiple studios, franchising with partners and producing professional theatre. Fifteen years later, I cannot begin to tell you how lucky I feel to make a very comfortable living doing what I love.”

LIFE SKILLS THROUGH STAGE SKILLS

Founded in 2009 by Shane and Erica Peterman, Arise Acting Studio’s mission is to shape and transform lives by teaching life skills through stage skills.

We believe in living truthfully in a professional, positive, and non-competitive environment. Excellence begins in the classroom and filters onto the stage, into the work and, most importantly, into the lives of our students. Arise Acting Studio also produces three full scale professional quality productions per year and offers travel opportunities to various locations each year for students to study and perform with other professionals in the industry.

BUILDING TRUST AND
FRIENDSHIPS WITHIN
THE GREEN WALLS

Our goal as an organization is to strengthen the community; and most importantly the children of that community through excellence in theatrical arts education. Our credo of teaching life skills through stage skills has proven to us that relationship building is the bigger picture, it is what matters the most and keeps our families invested for many years. Most communities have many artists who are educated in the arts that are attracted to the flexible schedule and can bring their own angle to each lesson or class they teach which makes staffing relatively easy. In short, we truly believe that our success is built on relationships, quality, excellence, and the ability to focus on that consistent experience while providing value to our families and partners.

WHAT FRANCHISEES ARE SAYING:

After training with Arise Acting Studio as a student during my high school years, I went on to pursue a degree in in Acting; however, I found myself conflicted as to whether the obvious path as a working artist in New York city would provide the best way to meet my goals as an artist and individual. Arise Acting Studio provided an opportunity to not only fulfill my passions and reach the goals set for myself, but also to give back to the art in greater ways than I had considered possible. I opened Arise Acting Studio Rockwall location in 2017 and have been able to find the greatest fulfillment in creating a place where the next generation of artists has the opportunity to discover their passions and for children who wanted to perform for fun would have a place to do so in an environment that strives towards pushing each student to be bold, be daring, and to be themselves!”

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING:

“It is quite rare to find a theater school/company that has the professionalism, talent and dedication that we have found with Arise Acting Studio. Their high expectations of the kids result in learning and productions unparalleled in any other local theater group we have explored (and we have tried several)…I suspect you will be as impressed as we are.”
