“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.”

Explorations in Acting I for Tweens (ages 10-13)
Our Tween Explorations in Acting Class I (ages 10-13) classes encourage spontaneity, simplicity and fun.
The class begins with ensemble building exercises, improvisation games and script analysis. Students then explore The Barrow Group approach and acting tools via scene study. The class culminates in an open class for friends and family to come watch their work.
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.
What makes The Barrow Group different from many other studios in NYC is that all of our teachers have gone through an intensive teacher training program. 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 to work on different material and be introduced to more tools.
