Acting Classes for Kids and Teens in NYC

Fundamentals of Acting for Young People

Looking for fun and challenging acting classes for kids and teens in NYC? Our Youth Programs at T. Schreiber Studio provide acting classes for kids ages 8-11 and teens ages 12-17 in a safe, supportive environment with professional instruction.

Our small group classes and award-winning instructors provide the perfect opportunity to prepare your young actor for a professional career in stage, film, and television. Above all, your child will develop communication skills that will prove valuable beyond the classroom or stage, and help nurture their confidence as a well-rounded individual for years to come.

What can you expect from the class?

  • Our acting classes for kids will introduce students to the same tools that our adult professional actors use in a safe and fun environment
  • Develop a strong acting foundation through improvisation, character development and scene work
  • Students learn to follow performance instincts, take direction, collaborate, and work as part of a team
  • Focus placed on the skills to successfully audition and land the job
  • Our goal is to build confident young performers with the skills to create truthful and effective performances for stage, film, and television

When are classes and what is the time commitment?

  • Acting classes take place on Saturdays for 2 hours and starting times vary depending on age group. See below for more information and starting dates.
  • You can join us for a full-year acting program, or enroll by semester. Each semester focuses on a different subject.

Who are some notable alumni?

  • Breakout star Julia Garner (featured in the hit series of Ozark, Maniac, The Americans, Waco, and more) originally joined us at T. Schreiber Studio as a teen to overcome her shyness. Her work with instructor Pamela Scott gave her the skills and confidence to audition and land these coveted roles. She still studies with Pam today!
