Current Acting Class Information

New York Acting Classes

All New York acting classes are at John Strasberg Studios, 555 8th Avenue, suite 2310, between 37th and 38th streets.

New York acting classes are small. Both the New York 10 week acting program and the Intensive Acting Workshops for Teachers, Directors, and Actors, fill up 3 months in advance. To reserve a space, it is best to plan well in advance, and notify us of your desire to participate as far in advance as possible. Even then, we cannot guarantee that you will have a space until the ongoing session ends, and actors currently working have committed to the next session or released their space. Sessions are organized well in advance to permit actors to make their plans. Because the session is less than 3 months long, you only need a tourist visa. You do not need to apply for a special visa. If you come from a country with an agreement for the Visa Waiver Program with the United States you need to apply to ESTA Please read the rules concerning payments and refunds.

Organic Script Analysis for Teachers, Writers, Directors and Actors, 16 Teacher/Directors, 10 days, Monday-Friday 10-4, hours per day. 1 or 2 texts, plays or films will be analysed.

Also, teachers and directors will develop a clear sense of what their teaching and/or director process is. Teacher/Directors audit the Intensive Workshop for Actors, and there will be an interactive discussion afterwards, with question and discussion of teaching/directing techniques with Mr. Strasberg.
