Join the TKS community and become a confident actor for the rest of your life

Terry Knickerbocker, Studio Director

Welcome to our studio!

 

Terry Knickerbocker Studio, is a diverse community of passionate artists empowered by acting’s most effective training methodology.

We work hard and play hard together.

Our world-class faculty is devoted to developing the fullest expression of our students’ unique talents.

Our students are embarked on a journey toward the mastery of their craft—a journey that promises both professional and personal rewards.

It’s a process. A dramatic process, complete with challenges, success, and even failure—which when you learn to embrace it, can be powerfully transformative. (We can help with that.)

The bottom line: TK Studio will help you achieve total confidence in your ability to act. A confidence you’ll bring with you to every audition and to any role—for the rest of your life.

Does this sound like the kind of thing you want to be a part of? If so, let’s talk.

Enrolling Now

Conservatory Programs

Terry Knickerbocker Studio’s flagship program is a five-semester-long professional acting Conservatory, centered around the Meisner technique.

Fall Intensive Program

Our Intensive programs are offered every Spring, Fall, and Summer, over the course of six to nine weeks. The Acting Intensive courses consist of the first 18 classes of the 128-class Meisner curriculum, and will form the basis of your mastery of the Meisner technique. Please visit our Fall Intensive page for more info.

Open Elective Courses

We know that many actors have distinct interests in various techniques and tools, like Voice Acting classes, Shakespeare, Stage Combat, and many more. Like university conservatory programs, we offer a wide range of elective classes.
