It is true that many people come to New York City to take acting classes in the hopes that they will break into movies or television. However, some people like to take acting classes simply because they're fun, or because those people want to increase their self-confidence and self-image, something acting allows you to do.
You can choose from public or private acting classes. In addition, if you like the idea of patronizing an acting studio that participates in philanthropic causes, you can choose one that does this.
This is a private acting school as well as a studio of distinction. Its location in the heart of the Theatre District in New York City assures students that they will learn acting in the most accommodating environment.
You can choose from short-term classes, which are very intensive—you learn a lot in a short period of time, or from long-term classes that let you develop your acting skills over an extended period. You also have a chance to perform in different productions, both for classroom display and public viewing.
This acting school accepts beginner and professional actors, as well as those who want to perform in musical theatre. The teachers have all won acting awards of different types, and know how to bring out the best in you.
They'll show you how to get rid of anything that may be holding you back, while developing your mind and body. All of this together ensures that you will receive a well-rounded acting education, preparing you for seeking out roles and auditions.
If you are looking for an acting studio that also gives back to New York City, the Stella Adler Studio of Acting is the one for you. You can attend professional classes at the Studio, knowing that children in low-income/inner city neighborhoods are also getting the same advantage.
In addition, Stella Adler concentrates on American acting. This prepares you for acting jobs and roles in the American entertainment genre. So, throw in a little patriotism there, too. All of this as well as the high-quality training you will receive make Stella Adler a good choice.
The Actors Theater Workshop
At this studio, you will attend classes at the Scott Acting Conservatory. You will take advantage of the teaching styles designed and implemented by Thurman E. Scott, for whom the conservatory is names.
Mr. Scott received his own training from some of the best acting teachers in the business, including Stella Adler, Lee Strasburg, and others. In fact, Mr. Scott and Ms. Adler spent 25 years in a creative relationship. He is more than qualified to offer the acting courses you need or want.
