Zoom-Based On-Camera Acting Classes

for BA / BFA Students

Available for Juniors/Seniors from select University Programs 

Free Workshop Signups

Thursday, May 9th at 5PM EST on Zoom.

Workshop includes acting exercises, Q&A about the auditioning process in NYC, and an introduction to acting/auditioning via self tapes (the new industry standard)

Workshop Description:

Over our 25+ years of being one of the most well-respected acting studios in NYC, we have found that many recent BA/BFA grads feel a little lost when they move to New York City. They have fantastic theatre-based training, but crave more on-camera audition training to navigate the current business and launch their acting careers. 

Kimball Studio can help bridge that gap.

Our classes are updated each season to respond to the ever-changing film & TV industry in NYC, using current sides and in constant consultation with some of the biggest names in NYC casting. Our teachers are at the highest level of the industry, coaching some of the most renowned names in film, TV, and Broadway. And we specialize in helping theatre-based actors make the transition to on-camera work.

"I started taking classes at Kimball Studio while in my senior year at university. I've received amazing industry advice, met professionals, and have had the opportunity to expand my professional package and grow artistically. The classes focus on creating powerful, simple on-camera work while considering the pace and obstacles of the TV/film business… lessons I’m so grateful to be learning early on. And their program is so flexible (and accessible from anywhere via online class options) that I'm able to easily balance it with my school work. This is the perfect combination of teaching to have while at university, confidently prepping for the beginning of your career!"

2023 Summer/Fall Session


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.”

Director -

Chernobyl (HBO),

Bloodline (Netflix)

"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."

Jenny Ravitz


Casting Director - Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD

"I'm always impressed by The Kimball Studio's commitment to technique. Their students truly understand both auditioning and acting for the camera. Not only is their training first-rate, they also encourage a welcoming and supportive community. "



Casting Director - Dickinson (Apple TV+)

"Kelly Kimball's studio sets itself apart from all the other big rat pack studios in New York City. The actors are focused and have great depth. Truly a one of a kind place in the big city."

"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. "
