“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.”

Weekend: 10 weeks, $425
After School: 11 weeks, $425
Our Explorations in Acting for Tweens (10-13 years old) classes encourage spontaneity, simplicity and fun. This class teaches our specific approach to storytelling, and introduces students to the same tools that our adult professional actors work with.
We believe that to act is to PLAY, and that students learn the most in an atmosphere of relaxed positive reinforcement.
We begin with ensemble building games, script analysis/story structure exercises, introduce monologue work, then begin scene study. Students will be given scripts and work with The Barrow Group acting tools. 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 are on-going, and can be taken multiple times before taking Acting 2: Theatre Production and Performance..

In this class students will learn all of the artistic and technical positions in professional theater by writing, acting, directing, and designing their own work. Students begin with writing exercises then step into the roles of actor, director, producer, stage manager and design team for each others work. Throughout the course, students will also learn the basic technical aspects of running the light and sound booth.
The class culminates in an open showing of their plays for friends, family and TBG community members.
