A non-competitive introduction to the world of acting. These 4 week workshops are designed specifically for the child interested in exploring the possibility of professional acting. Warming up with improvisation is always fun while working with other actors. This positive, enjoyable approach will build confidence and give the child basic acting skills, script analysis and TV commercial training. The 'Meisner technique' is introduced as part of our warm-up exercises. "Acting is Behaving Truthfully Under Imaginary Circumstances".
This workshop is taught by Manhattan Film Agents, casting directors and personal talent managers.

All students will be given the opportunity to deliver their new found monologue to a top NYC talent agent.
Lots of fun when they get to view their recorded playbacks. The bloopers can be especially entertaining.

Not sure which class is right for you? Try these collaborate classes that meet once a week for 4 weeks. Every class is a different genre, but with a similar goal; to help bring out the best in you as an actor. Learn how to feel comfortable and relaxed with actors portraying your new "sibling" or "grandparent" in film roles and enjoy watching yourself perform on our zoom recorded video playbacks.
New scripts are sent to our studio monthly. Be the first to see the actual scenes played by your favorite movie star - Emulating them is fun, but putting your own twist & spin on the role is even more exciting. Learn how to challenge yourself with different characters as we "role play" in this scene class together. These workshops are best suited for the beginner & intermediate student looking to explore and further their knowledge in the industry.
Each week you will enjoy learning something new...Experience film and TV commercials one week, improv and comedy another followed by a technique class including Meisner and the Method.
(limited space in this class for individual attention)
Sketch comedy is introduced and hit comedy shows are used as a template for all classes. Students work with scripts from actual episodes of their favorite television sitcoms. Emphasis is placed on characterization, blocking, playing scenes within a scene and timely preparation.
Before beginning your creative work however, it is important for us to 'warm up' our students with weekly exercises that will increase & focus their energy. Once they are all loosened up and ready to dive into their chosen characters, the class becomes a fantasy world of who you want to be, who you know you are and who you never imagined could be possible.
These 3 week workshops promote creativity and spontaneity. Excellent for the actor who needs help with expressing or exploring their imagination. "Logic will get you from A-Z; imagination will get you everywhere"!
Please note - this is an advanced workshop and interviews are required before signing up for this course.

You will learn to "think out of the box" as we will focus on character development and technique. We shall introduce you to the world of 'method' acting and explore your inner being through mind/body connections. Getting into character is easy, the heavy part is learning how to "stay" there!
This is a 3 week summer workshop that is sure to keep the child focused & on their toes as we alternate professional industry instructors for 'diversity and freshness'.
The behind the scenes tips from the casting directors "picks" to producers creative and technical "know-hows" will all be discussed from NY talent managers, casting diectors and film agents Our instructors have coached many celebrity actors and are passionate about sharing their knowledge and poignant insights with you. The intense bonding experience that you will share with the other students is sure to be inspiring.
Our improv-based teaching methods are not only loads of fun but are geared to help anyone interested in acting to let loose and just "get into" the scene with ease and confidence.
