The Young Actor’s Studio is an acting school dedicated to developing the young actor’s craft through classes, workshops, and productions. Our founder/current artistic director, Jeff Alan-Lee, was a child actor who subsequently taught and directed at various private/public schools and youth shelters, as well as teaching/directing at The Lee Strasberg Institute in both New York and Los Angeles. Founded in 1996, The Young Actor’s Studio was created as a supportive and nurturing environment for young actors to develop their craft. While the school has grown a lot since the initial ten students, we are still committed to excellent teaching in a supportive and close-knit environment.
Acting classes are centered around encouraging and praising each student for who they are and merging this into their work. Our students learn to create a unique, original character that is truly their own. In doing so, the young actor develops a love for the work, and with this, the ability to flourish as both an actor and person.
