Fall 20208/5 Update: Online

The Lee Strasberg Institute announces that fall semester classes will begin with fully online instruction, per State & Local guidance. (Los Angeles is preparing for outdoor in-person instruction once permitted.)

The power of Lee Strasberg’s work lies in its simplicity – it can be done anytime and anywhere. And as Lee believed, the foundation for all the actor’s work begins in the chair. So let’s all commit ourselves to our craft, to the deepening of our work, and to a daily practice of creativity and imagination–our greatest resource in these difficult times.
