Stay “creatively connected” with Brooklyn Acting Lab! Per NYS guidelines, BAL is now offering Outdoor (in-person) Summer Programming in addition to our Virtual (online) Offerings. It’s important that we continue to sing, move and dance, play, tell stories and express ourselves. No matter what the circumstances, the BAL community can always find moments of collective JOY together!


Virtual Programs

BAL continues to offer (virtual) spaces to connect, share, and create! Check out our engaging, joyful, physical and interactive theater classes for youth, teens, and adults. Private coaching is available, and we have also added youth and adult Broadway-style dance classes to our offerings!

Outdoor Programs

Offered in Prospect Park, these weekly programs are immersive theatrical adventures and will give the children an opportunity to play outdoors, dance and move, and engage in guided dramatic play and improvisation.

Adult Classes

BAL offers adult acting classes, drama intensives and theater workshops for everyone from aspiring professional actors to those who simply want to feel more comfortable in social situations or giving work presentations. Our workshops include improv, comedy, classic training and more.

Private Coaching | Audition Prep

Brooklyn Acting Lab offers private singing lessons, acting coaching, and audition prep. Our team of professional actors and performers will work with students to grow as a performer, build technique, feel confident, and have fun!

Support BAL

Please help keep the BAL magic alive. Brooklyn Acting Lab has been serving our community since 2008 and nothing is going to change that, but today we need your support, so that tomorrow, when we come together again we are strong.

  • We couldn't be prouder of our incredible Jr. Musical Ensemble - who have been working so hard on the song "Shake it Up" from James and the Giant Peach. All appropriate permissions and media releases have been obtained for the performers in this video. Enjoy!...
