Since 1969, the T Schreiber Studio has been committed to the development of vital artists in theatre, film and television. Our studio and theatre work to provide an environment that nourishes artists throughout their careers while constantly engaging new audiences.

HB Studio is a school created by theater artists. We believe in a process of training that is essential to all the performing arts. We offer a rigorous, well-rounded curriculum of study for committed students of all levels where the actor’s unique potential is cultivated and encouraged. We provide a haven for working professionals, free from commercial pressures. Working in partnership with the HB Playwrights Foundation and Theatre, we uphold a standard of performance that can play a significant role in shaping today’s contemporary and classical theater – a standard envisioned by our founder, actor/director Herbert Berghof, and championed by the actor and master teacher Uta Hagen.

Located in Manhattan’s thriving theater district, The Ted Bardy Acting Studio is recognized internationally as the BEST PIRVATE, INDEPENDENT ACTING SCHOOL IN NEW YORK CITY. Dedicated artists may enroll in the Studio’s unique all-encompassing 3-Phase Meisner-Based Acting Program.

The Primary Stages Einhorn School of Performing Arts (ESPA)’s multidisciplinary classes have trained playwrights, actors, and directors in all stages of their development and from all corners of the globe. Our focus is on nurturing, advocating, and honoring emerging artists by providing them countless developmental opportunities, space to write and rehearse, and a family of collaborators. Students benefit from a kaleidoscope of perspectives and methods from our award-winning family of instructors—all working theater artists in NYC and around the country.

The New York Acting School for Film and Television

Learn the craft of film acting, build your resume and a reel through the experience of acting a leading role in a short film or movie scene which will be directed by the instructor. In this acting class, you will work on: scene study, interacting with other actors, listening and responding, character development, being in the moment for multiple takes, improvisations and exercises to improve your technique, various “tricks of the trade”, taking and implementing precise direction, and how to adjust your performance for various camera angles and shots.
