Young Actors Program

YOUNG ACTORS AT STRASBERG (YAS)
ACTING CLASSES FOR KIDS & TEENS

MISSION STATEMENT

Young Actors at Strasberg is a program for kids and teens interested in developing a strong foundation in Lee Strasberg’s Method Acting. Our mission is to teach students how to achieve uniquely honest and truthful performances in all acting mediums, while also promoting self-confidence, self-discipline, individuality, and creativity in a nurturing environment. All classes in our Young Actors curriculum explore the creative process and help young people develop skills in teamwork and leadership, while fine-tuning the craft that develops exceptional actors.

Young Actors at Strasberg (Grade 2-12) is currently available fully online through our New York campus.

ABOUT OUR YOUTH ACTING CLASSES

There’s no better time to learn new skills, begin training, create community, foster self-expression, and prepare for a career than at the pivotal moment when inspiration and motivation converge. For some, that moment occurs during childhood.

Because acting is one of the few professions that relies on performers of all ages, child acting is a necessity. Young actors, therefore, are an integral part of the film, television, and theatre industries. Youth acting classes are vital for supporting aspiring young actors in honing their natural talents while preparing to successfully enter the professional realm. After all, great actors are made, not born. Acting classes for kids and teens can help inspired students achieve their highest potential.

At The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, we offer a comprehensive selection of acting classes which train young actors to use The Method in order to access their authentic emotions and responses, learn the art of storytelling, and foster a sense of collaboration. Classes are tailored for students in grades K – 2, grades 3 – 6, and for teens, grades 7-12.

In a profession that is often competitive, it’s essential that young actors develop a deep sense of confidence in their performance skills. You can find comfort in knowing that The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute provides quality training by the best in the industry. Students are left feeling grounded in their process, connected to their inherent creativity, and confident in their abilities.
