NSB focuses on the union of in-depth text analysis, heightened language techniques, and rigorous physical and vocal training for the creation of an indelible character, the clear playing of a dramatic action, and the illumination of ideas within the text, as these are the fundamentals of the actor’s process. Equally, we are training and unleashing the imagination, inspiring and recognizing young actors’ impulses and instincts. Each young actor-in-training has a distinct life experience and worldview, which are also essential in creating a character that rings true. Rather than embracing and espousing a single methodology or approach, NSB classes offer the practical application of competencies required for an actor to develop a dynamic versatility that will enable them to fluidly move through a range of performance idioms.
Our objective is to provide the actor with the requisite skill set necessary to sustain a lifelong career as a professional actor and musical theatre performer, embedding all aspects of music and dance in vivid and truthful acting, at play with global audiences onstage, not only in the musical theatre, but in new technologies and innovations of the future.
Master artist/teachers, including Broadway and New York theatre, film and television professionals, working at national and international levels, teach all courses.
