The Barrow Group offers a variety of acting, directing, and writing classes online via the video conferencing tool Zoom (click here for our Zoom Info Sheet), so that people may engage with us from any location. At the heart of our approach is the desire to promote clear and concise tools outlined and published in An Actor’s Companion – 99 Bits of Craft by TBG co-Artistic Director Seth Barrish. Whether in person or online, our talented faculty of professional teaching artists bring insightful and meaningful instruction to students at every level of experience.
In addition to our online classes, we offer hundreds of in-person opportunities for people to hone their craft or discover a new passion in our arts center in midtown Manhattan. Currently, however, in response to the national health emergency (COVID-19), we are only offering online classes in order to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe. If you have any questions about our online classes, please contact [email protected]
All Fall 2020 Classes will be online.VIEW FALL CLASS SCHEDULE
