Teen Programs

The Teen Conservatory Program is based on the conviction that young actors, ages 14 to 17, can be trained with the same rigor and discipline as adults. The Faculty in this program is the same as, or comparable to, the Studio’s Conservatory or NYU Tisch Undergraduate Drama programs. Actors exercise all the aspects of craft required to achieve the highest professional standards: voice and speech, movement, improvisation, scene study, Shakespeare and acting technique.

As with all of the Studio’s programs, the Teen Conservatory is informed by the insight that growth as an actor and growth as a human begin are synonymous. Young people are therefore acquainted not only with core elements of actor training but with the artistic, cultural and humanistic values that support a life in the theater.

“Going through the Teen Conservatory specifically helped immensely with my transition in to the NYU Tisch Drama program because I became accustomed to nine-hour days, five days a week. The skills I developed within the Teen Conservatory program are invaluable. They continue to inform my acting and how I operate in my every day life.”
-Kataruna Zhu, NYU Tisch BFA Student
