ABOUT

KIMBALL STUDIO

Class 10.png

At our on-camera acting studio, we're passionate about helping professional actors excel in the world of film and television.

Our programs are designed to provide comprehensive, active training that prepares actors to succeed in the current industry landscape where you have to deliver on set, but the audition process is self-tape & online. That’s why we have classes both in-person at our NYC studio and on Zoom.

OUR FOUNDER

KELLY KIMBALL

Kelly Kimball founded Kimball Studio 30 years ago. She became one of the most beloved, inspirational, and respected acting teachers in NYC by actors, casting directors and agent/managers.

“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.” - Kelly Kimball
