As founder of the Chance Studio for the Professional Actor in Studio City, Los Angeles, California, Bobbie Chance admits that her greatest passion has always been the work itself. She prides herself on the ability to forget traditional training methods and techniques.
“We nurture the ability to access the raw and savage emotion that must exist in every professional actor if they are to be truly successful, and at the Chance Acting Studio, we get all our actors there.”
During coaching sessions, actors/actresses tap into a deeper part of themselves that breaks any inhibitions and allows their true talent to present itself. That is what acting is. A revealing of emotion so powerful, it can take your breath away and create Hollywood silver screen magic.

As a result Bobbie has been successful in getting many children to open up and learn to trust others.

And my wonderful husband, Larry Chance, who I have been married to for 35 years. My family is so important to me.”
Greatest Part of Her Business? “ I love being able to give back. To help grow young talent and then in some cases watch them blossom into huge international film stars. It’s unbelievably rewarding.”
