Teen Summer Acting Programs (ages 14-17)

“I walked through the doors of The Barrow Group and rediscovered not only joy in Acting, but an essential belief in myself.” 
Martin Moran, OBIE Award Winner

Under the guidance of Barrow Group acting teachers, our teen (14-18 yrs) summer programs introduce students to the Barrow Group approach to acting. These intensives reinforce working with ease, clarity, and simplicity. 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 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.
