COVID-19 UPDATE: (5/22/2020) The Studio is mission driven to provide an environment that values humanity above all else. In these pandemic times, that means taking the best of advice of local authorities toward community health and safety. Los Angeles County continues to shelter-in and the studio has decided to move all summer programs to Zoom. Online summer programs allow us to offer actors a chance to train with world-class faculty while observing important social distancing measures.

The Summer Conservatory (Summer Program) is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theater (NAST) and approved by the Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education of California(BPPE).  For more information on NAST, Click here.  For more information on the BPPE, Click here.

One of the most popular summer programs in the nation now has an online study option! The Online Summer Conservatory gives actors, no matter where they live in the world, a chance to experience this rigorous foundation-building course that highlights the core curriculum of our Professional Conservatory. Study with the world-renown faculty of the Stella Adler Studio and Art of Acting Studio through the live video platform, Zoom. We find the growth demonstrated by the end of the six 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 6-week, 22-hour-per-week intensive.
