The Freeman Studio was founded to provide a Place for Actors.
A nurturing environment that treats actors with respect and at a peer level equal to their talents.
A place where working professionals can continue their artistic growth and promising actors can develop their talents for a career.
A place where actors can enhance their craft and careers at the same time.
We are governed by what will be useful and meaningful to actors.
WHAT WE DO AT OUR ACTING STUDIO
With the increasing pressures and time constraints of the rehearsal hall, film set, and audition room, it is more important than ever that actors are given permission to slow down. This studio allows an actor to concentrate on the process and develop a practical and reliable method. In our acting studio in the vibrant NoMad neighborhood, we provide an enriching and nurturing environment for you to develop your individual talents.
So often, for the classically trained actor, taking class is not always about learning new concepts, but learning how to implement them in their technique more effectively. This studio allows an actor to do just that with fellow actors at their peer level of experience. All of our acting alumni must meet a criteria based on experience, talent, demeanor, and ambition.
Our team is dedicated to the idea of mentorship so we collaborate with artists and teachers who are renowned for their expertise and developing budding talent.
HOW OUR ACTING CLASSES CAN ENHANCE YOUR CRAFT
Our NY Acting Studio offers a revolving series of affordable on-going adult acting classes, workshops, seminars, and free events that reflect the needs and interests of a modern working actor. These include participation by leading teachers, writers, directors, casting directors, and producers in the theatre and on-camera community. This studio is also a social place for actors and anyone affiliated with the arts. Organized gatherings, parties, and studio sponsored events are presented throughout the year.
OUR SCENE STUDY & ON-CAMERA CLASSES
If you want to be a professional actor, you need to start somewhere. If you have talent and professional promise, our teachers are ready to give you an artistic home where you can learn to develop your gifts. Our Start Acting class is designed to give early-career actors a defined and reliable technique to sustain them in a promising career in film, television, and on the stage.
Our Next Level, formerly known as CORE Training, meets the needs for actors who will benefit from intermediate acting training. This class is focused on strengthening individual weak points and providing a greater understanding of professional expectations on stage or set. Our faculty possess a collective knowledge of expertise that enables students to achieve quality results.
Our ongoing scene study classes breeds confidence and expertise to provide greater results in the audition room, on stage, or on stage. This master acting class is led by experienced teachers who have prescriptive methods to get to the heart of an individual’s acting needs.
The Freeman Studio in New York City holds On-Camera and Stage Acting in equal esteem. We take pride in these specialized classes that are designed to strengthen an actor’s ability to act on-camera and how to audition effectively. Veteran actors provide an intimate and intensive dive into the preparation and experience of an on-camera audition. The ultimate goal is to have each student become more confident in their own on-camera techniques and nail auditions.
There are so many aspects of the acting craft. The studio is fortunate to be affiliated with prominent teachers in a variety of disciplines, as well as prominent directors and playwrights. This allows us to offer a variety of useful and inspiring workshops for a shorter period of time and at a lower cost. These have included Auditioning Technique, Acting in New Plays, Solo Performance, Voice, Dialects, Singing, and Shakespeare. Check out our schedule of upcoming workshops.
Free/Low Cost Informational and Networking Events
We believe that it is not enough for us to train, inspire and connect actors to one another. It is also our responsibility to point an arrow from our studio to the career. To that end, we offer free and low-cost sessions with leading actors, directors, writers, as well as casting directors, agents and managers and producers in the theatre & on-camera community. Attend one of our free panel discussions or join one of our online event series offered on Fridays.
