History… Tradition… Legacy…

We believe that the purpose of an acting school is to get you working professionally. And that begins with Professional Level training. Training that has worked for over 80 years and continues to work today, for a new generation of actors. Guided by Martin Barter, a master teacher, you will be taught one of the strongest acting foundations available today. Our commitment to Sandy’s legacy is to maintain the technique as he left it behind. We come from a rich history and deep tradition, as noted by The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and Backstage.
