HB Studio’s acting classes for kids and teens invite young people ages 9-17 to discover their creative potential through the practice of acting. Whether in regular studio acting classes for kids or teens, or weekend acting intensives that provide preparation for college or conservatory programs, young people come to HB to experience the power of imagination and, through a process of self-discovery and inventive play, give meaningful expression to the world around them.
One of the longest-running programs of NYC acting classes for kids and teens, several of today’s stars of stage and screen got their start in HB’s drama classes for Young People — including Claire Danes, Amanda Peet, Jerry O’Connell, Jayce Bartok, and David Deblinger. More recent graduates of our teen and kids acting classes include the emerging talents of Monica Bell, Lorna Courtney, and Molly Carden.
Whether seeking to pursue an acting career or simply exploring new possibilities for creativity and fun, HB Studio welcomes young people to join our joyful and supportive community of theater artists.
