The Summer Conservatory is the studio’s most popular summer training program, giving actors a chance to experience this rigorous foundation-building course that highlights the core curriculum of our Professional Conservatory. Classes with our world-renowned faculty include Acting Technique, Improvisation, Scene Study, Shakespeare, Movement, On-Camera and Voice & Speech. We find the growth demonstrated by the end of the nine weeks palpable, deeply encouraging and an affirmation of our belief that “growth as an actor and growth as a human being are synonymous.” This is a 9-week, 24-hour-per-week intensive.

Classes per Week:
Scene Study
Acting Technique
Voice & Speech
On-Camera Acting
