West Hollywood Programs
The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute seeks to carry out its mission by offering the world’s most comprehensive and authentic training in the Method.
The West Hollywood Acting Programs at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute were created by Lee Strasberg and are under the artistic supervision of his wife, Anna Strasberg, and his son, Creative Director David Lee Strasberg.
Lee Strasberg designed the classes to offer actors the opportunity to pursue their work systematically and to gain firsthand knowledge of his fundamental concepts. Here, through class work, seminars, exercises, scene work, demonstrations, commentary and discussions, both professionals and non-professionals are encouraged to develop their art and themselves.
Comprehensive training is necessary for actors to reach their maximum potential. The Institute offers carefully designed programs, which vary in level and scope, to empower our actors to face every challenge with courage and confidence.
For a small taste of our work, and to experience Lee Strasberg’s Method Acting for yourself you can enroll in an Intensive Programs offered through the calendar year.
We offer the following programs at West Hollywood Campus:
- 12 – Week Program
