Under the guidance of Barrow Group acting teachers, our teen (14-18 yrs) summer intensives 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.

If we are able to offer in-person, we will add additional intensives, not change the online intensives to in-person intensives. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected]

Online Three-Week Summer Acting Intensive

Our Online Three-Week Summer Acting Intensive explores:


  • ensemble building
  • improv
  • script analysis
  • monologues
  • scene study
  • introduction to The Barrow Group acting tools

This class teaches our specific approach to storytelling, and introduces students to the same tools that our adult professional actors work with. In our teen classes, students are asked to observe fellow classmates work and give objective feedback based on what changed/what was different after an adjustment is given. Honing observation skills in this way is crucial to the learning process and understanding of The Barrow Group approach.

Starts July 5 – Monday-Friday, 10am-1pm EST
Starts July 12 – Monday-Friday, 2pm-5pm EST
