“Best acting training I ever received. Subtle and real and deep. ...every experience is cherished, and not only that, intriguing. A great teacher, a great human.”

HBO's Jamie Neumann

Scene Study is an actor’s gym - a place for you to hone your craft and keep your skills sharp. It’s an environment for actors to get their reps in, continually tackling new material and gaining confidence in their process. How are you keeping your artistic self in shape?

Considered some of the best scene study classes in New York City, Peter Jensen’s courses have a following with award-nominated actors and television series regulars. These scene study classes provide an environment for experienced actors to enhance their ability to act from a deeply personal and freely imaginative place, bringing spontaneity and truthfulness to their work. Tools and exercises will be incorporated with scene work to develop the actor’s instrument and build technique.

These ongoing Scene Study classes meet once a week in-person or online and are offered in cycles of 4 or 6 weeks. Once you have joined an ongoing class, you may re-enroll to continue developing your work. 

"Peter guides you to depths of truth in your acting that you don't even realize until you've arrived."

Personal in-depth work, exercises and relationship improvs, designed to tap into the actor’s inner life and imagination will be applied to the scene.  In future cycles, actors are assigned a variety of new scenes and partners as they continue to develop and strengthen their process.

Thursdays (6-week cycles) 
Actors will bring in a monologue of their choosing for the first class of each cycle, as well as engage in group warmups, relaxation techniques, and sensory/stimulus work.
