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.

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.
