Compiled by B.L. Rice
The following is a list of New York area stage and film acting schools, teachers, and coaches organized alphabetically. Those asterisked (*) were contacted, but did not respond by press time; they were accurate as of January, 2003.
We've tried to include as many as possible.
Entries are divided into six categories: Acting Technique, Children/ Teens, Comedy/Improv, Monologue/ Audition/Coaching, Multipurpose, and On-Camera (Film/TV/Commercial). For alphabetical listing by category, see the Quick Reference Chart on page A17.
Each of the entries contains the following information, if applicable: (a) name of school, (b) address, (c) phone number, (d) number of years experience or in operation, (e) average number of students in the class, (f) whether beginners, intermediate, or advanced students are taught, (g) if auditing is permitted, (h) whether classes are ongoing or by sessions, (i) any special emphasis used in classes or coaching, and (j) if offered, work/study programs are indicated. Descriptions of the class, school, or coaching are provided by the instructor. Editing of listings is at the discretion of Back Stage.
If any schools or names have been omitted, contact B.L. Rice in writing c/o Back Stage, 770 Broadway, 4th floor, New York, NY 10003, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we may include you in our next listing.
