“TBG was really the institution that taught me how to act. I worked with the best teachers, who taught me why less is really more.”

Acting 1: Explorations in Acting for Teens (ages 14-18)
Our Acting 1: Explorations in Acting for Teens (14-18 years old) classes encourage spontaneity, simplicity and fun. We believe that to act is to PLAY, and that students learn the most in an atmosphere of relaxed positive reinforcement. This class teaches our specific approach to storytelling, and introduces students to the same tools that our adult professional actors work with.
We begin with ensemble building games, then introduce the Barrow Group tools via monologues and scene study. The class culminates in an open class for friends and family to come watch their work.
What makes The Barrow Group School different from many other studios in NYC is that all of our teachers have gone through an intensive teacher training program with TBG co-Artistic Directors Seth Barrish and Lee Brock. So when your child takes a class with us, the teacher has trained for years at The Barrow Group in our specific approach.
These classes can be taken multiple times before advancing on to Acting 2: Theatre Production and Performance.
