Outdoor After-School Programs

It’s time to celebrate nature and connect with creativity! Join us for after-school theater classes in Prospect Park where we’ll invent new and exciting stories inspired by the rich history and natural beauty of the park. We’ll sing to the trees, dance with the squirrels, and run with the wind. BAL’s outdoor acting classes for kids have been running since July 2020 and our BAL students are jazzed to be able to re-connect with their BAL buddies and continue to do what they love. We move BIG and play hard and at the end of the season we will share our stories under the trees in an outdoor performance for families. School pick-up resumes this Fall!

Indoor After-School Programs

Brooklyn Acting reopened our studio at 1012 8th Avenue in the Spring of 2021. We’re excited to be working in our very special space again, while continuing to follow current NYS guidelines and protocols to keep our community safe. BAL’s indoor after-school theater and acting classes will be limited in size to allow for social distancing. We will require masks / face coverings indoors for all during the Fall 2021 season.

Online After-School  Programs

Join us in the Zoom Theater for after-school acting and theater classes! BAL has been offering online programming since March 2020 and we are taking virtual theater-making to the next level. Guided by experienced teaching artists who are both educators and theater professionals, we’ve adapted your favorite improv games to the virtual space and have discovered new and exciting ways to create stories, develop characters, and hone performance skills. Virtual programs culminate in an online video share for friends and families. It’s all happening in the Zoom Theater!


SThe theater magic of BAL continues with after-school theater and acting classes offered outdoors in Prospect Park, indoors at our 8th Avenue location, and online via the Zoom Theater! Brooklyn Acting Lab is committed to continuing to provide safe and creative spaces for youth to come together to connect, share stories, express themselves, and create. At BAL we deeply believe that the arts are essential, the arts restore happiness, and the arts build community. Together, we are finding the joy in every day. Please join us!
