“This studio and course gave me so many specific tools to use for on-camera work that I felt I’d been missing for a long time. I can say now, I feel more confident preparing for and going into screen auditions/work than I ever have. And to top it off the community atmosphere is leagues above the rest!!”

We are an acting studio with a 25 year history of excellence. Our dedicated teachers have worked at the top levels of the Film & TV industry and have coached Academy Award / Emmy-winning actors. Our community of actors is determined to support one another on and off camera. All together, we provide the training and experience that NYC agents, managers, and casting directors most recommend (check out what they say about us here).

“Our job as actors is to keep cutting through where we stop ourselves and being able to be curious and explore past the comfort zone of where we were yesterday or a moment ago. Once we begin that, we expand this relationship with our ability to express authentically all the layers that come with each and every human emotion.”

"Film-making is about translating psychologies into behavior. As a director, I felt a pragmatic need to comprehend the tools, techniques and emotions on the other side of the lens. Recommended by an actress-friend, I stumbled into Kimball Studio. Their technique - rooted in Ballistics - is urgent, discombobulating and violently educational. Like Kelly phrases it: A gym for your acting techniques. Limping out of that first day, I was a rich man and there was no looking back."

"It is always a pleasure to be introduced to actors at Kimball Studio. The growth mindset, professionalism and the depth of training is exhibited in each actor's scene work. The care that goes into helping an actor find their lane and their interests is truly rare. Helping someone find their true authentic voice in a very hard business is what makes this Studio different and really helps make the actor's work pop. "
