Frequently Asked Questions
How and when can my child become a Tiny Talent World member?
Any parent, guardian or adult actor can be members of Tiny Talent World, because we offer local and international management opportunities to all our members. If members don’t have any training and are brand new to the arts and performing arts and the film and television industry, we will suggest the right fit of classes, or agencies if professionally trained. Our Early classes are those from 4 to 17 years. However, if you are an actor looking for an international representation or management, please feel free to sign up with us. Please do not sign up if you don’t have training in any of the arts forms named in our program.
Can my child sign up for camp programs when he/she is not a Tiny Talent World member?
Yes. You will have to pay a regular fee.
Can my child become a member after attending a camp?
Yes. Just enroll your child in one of our memberships.
How much does it cost to be a Tiny Talent World member?
Tiny Talent world classes are based on membership and each membership is based on a six-month commitment and a one-year commitment throughout one’s life as an artist on a self-discovery journey. We have the Platinum one and Platinum six, the Gold one and Gold six and the Silver one and Silver six. We conduct small classes depending on the membership and how many days a week chosen. This way, children will have the attention they deserve and will make lifetime memories, bonding with their craft as an artist and also with their group. Each member will have our undivided attention whatever they choose to study within the arts and performing arts and applied visual arts programs.
If you are a new parent looking to start supporting your child in the business of film and television, just sign your child up for $50 Euros. Once your child comes of age to start training, you can get any of the membership packages, discounted by the $50 Euros.
