Film/TV Acting Classes

“If you are like me, and you like to get the feeling, when watching a play or film or whatever, not that the actor is performing for you, but that you are being let in on a secret viewing of someone’s most private life…if you want to know what it feels like to do that in your work…then The Barrow Group is your place.  And moreover, what they teach is simple, without ego.”
Jennifer Landon, Three-time Emmy winner

Our film/tv classes are professional classes designed for actors with previous training and experience.  If you are a beginner actor, you must begin with our Beginner Acting Class.
