| where are the classes? |

for actors of all levels

Sundays on the Upper West Side

Utilizing classic acting techniques, improvisation, scene study, and character work, we explore the depth of characters, being in the moment on stage, and how to live truthfully under the given circumstances of a scene. We also have mock auditions to practice, learn how to prepare, experience engaging with people in the room, and gain more confidence.

Sundays in NYC & Tues in Westchester

Aimed at first-timer and more experienced writers. Learn structure, character development, subtext, external and internal conflict, and where to take your script once you've completed it.

Thursdays in midtown NYC

A fun and friendly opportunity to practice cold reading, and become a better writer. Actors receive their scripts when they arrive, writers run through the pages once with their actors, and then they perform it for the other cast. Then everyone in the room is welcome to give the writer feedback on the development of their script.
