In the spirit of its founders, Uta Hagen and Herbert Berghof, HB Studio welcomes committed actors, directors, and playwrights—beginning and experienced—to hone their skills in a community of peers and mentors. We seek to foster an environment where creative freedom prevails and artists are challenged to take their work to the next level.
For actors, HB now offers a progressive curriculum in Acting, Voice, Speech, Movement, and Musical Theatre. Choose one class at a time, or design your own part-time or full-time schedule. Special seminars and master classes are offered between terms, and a variety of skill-building and professional development workshops are offered throughout the year.
For those just starting out or those seeking to reconnect with the basics, Level 1 classes are open to all without audition, placement, or prerequisite. Classes at Levels 2 and 3 build on the foundational skills addressed at Level 1. For those at an advanced level of training and for the professional actor seeking a place to work out, renew, stretch, and explore, we offer ongoing classes at the Studio Practice Level. Level 2, Level 3, and Studio Practice classes require audition or placement.
Students interested in intensive, fast-track, full-time training are encouraged to apply for the Hagen Institute’s one-year Core Training or 6-week Summer Intensive program. In these programs, students train as an ensemble in a rigorous, integrated sequence of daily classes.
HB Studio also offers classes in Playwriting and Directing, and classes for Young People aged 9 and up. Performance opportunities are extended to advanced students free of charge through a series of 5-week Performance Labs. The Studio also offers opportunities for playwrights, directors, and actors to collaborate on readings and works-in-progress performance projects.
