“My daughter took an acting class with Ms Ruthie* and loved it! The class was creative, engaging, and fun. I’d highly recommend it to every parent since it gets kids (even introverts) to share, express themselves, meet new people, and have a great time.”

“My daughter was excited to see musical theatre offered for Beyond the Bell. She loved the warm up and improv games that led into song work.  It was a great introduction to the sense community created by theatre. She can’t wait to join again in the spring!”

One major thing that youth acting classes can provide is diversity. The kids are going to be from all around New York and the surrounding boroughs and are going to have all types of backgrounds. This will help children be more compassionate and accepting of others, and give them the opportunity to form deep and lasting bonds with the people in those classes. The kids all have a love of acting in common, which can form a foundation for a friendship that extends beyond the classes.
Group classes are scheduled at local schools or at students’ home.
