Our focus is on-camera acting for film and television and we've been consistently featured as #2 on Timeout NY's "best acting classes" column. Our teachers are professors at NYU Tisch. We are a female run business.
We work with no more than 200 actors a year, and for over 30 years we have committed to a studio of a boutique size where every actor works in every class, and is known by the community. Individual attention to each actor is our priority - we believe in learning by doing.
We care deeply about teaching and helping actors advance. All you need is the desire to practice.
Our students are Broadway actors transitioning to screen, working film & TV actors, and recent BFA grads embarking on their professional acting life.
We care deeply about teaching, helping actors advance, and promoting emotional intelligence through the craft of acting.
Our mission is to be your acting home - we will help you foster your acting skills and provide you with a passionate community, no matter what level you are. All you need is the desire to practice.

On-Camera acting is a different world from the stage. It requires a whole new skill set to be able to bring alive what’s in your head and express it through the screen. It’s THIS skill set that we teach at the studio. The language of the eyes and script analysis are at the forefront of our training.
We believe weekly, regular practice will help you gain the skills necessary for on-camera acting. We will help you dive all the way IN to your training because acting on-camera takes every ounce of each being.
We'll help you dive all the way IN to your training, and build
