“Whenever I’m asked by aspiring actors where I think they should study, I always recommend The Barrow Group… the smartest, least pretentious, simplest and most effective techniques I’ve ever come across.” — Allen Coulter, Director, “Hollywoodland”
Under the guidance of Barrow Group acting teachers, our youth summer programs introduce students to the Barrow Group approach to acting. These intensives reinforce working with ease, clarity, and simplicity. We also encourage an atmosphere of trust and PLAY!
Pre-Tween Summer Acting Camps (7 – 9 yrs. old)
For kids (ages 7 to 9) these one week intensive programs focus on ensemble building games, improv, script analysis, monologues, scene study, set design, rehearsal and performance.
