  • inferior to a superior degree or level

Here at the Ascend Actors Group, we are passionate about keeping professional actors growing, rising and ascending throughout the entire span of their careers, not just as actors, but as people.

We understand that an Actor’s career does not follow one a linear path. Like our logo, you may start going up, then to the side, then suddenly you find yourself going down; but with some help you begin to ascend.

Every career and circumstance is different, so we have developed a variation of online and offline training tools to assist you throughout your individual and unique acting career. Anyway, it’s a marathon not a sprint, and our job is to keep you well and truly hydrated throughout your journey.

We are an active supporter of the Actors Awareness Campaign.

Our support is not limited to only your Acting; we extend it to the daily lifestyle of an actor. We aim to not only provide you with a wide range of valuable acting workshops, courses and events to keep your skills sharp, but we also aim to continuously equip you with an extensive variation of beneficial and useful everyday tools.

We are about not giving up, hard work and succeeding. If you believe in this ethos, we want to work with you.
