Summer High School Program

Intensive Summer Acting Program for Young Actors running July 12-23, 2022

Train as an Actor, Find Your Voice & Create Original Work.


This Summer, study with one of the premiere NYC actor training institutions—in a brand new, revolutionary program for rising High School Juniors and Seniors. Terry Knickerbocker Studio knows the Meisner Technique, and you’ll begin there, with this hugely popular acting method—you’ll find and cultivate your own unique voice and truth, and discover who you really are as a young actor and artist.

From there, a diverse group of some of the most exciting teachers in professional actor training will bring you an array of supporting classes that will complement your Meisner work—Voice and Singing, Movement, Clown, and Creating Your Own Work.

Over the course of two weeks, you’ll also have Master Classes and Q + A’s with influential leaders from the worlds of theater, film, and TV, with everyone working toward a shared goal of training, seeing, and hearing you—honest, an individual—and an actor who, in a time of isolation, is learning to create their own original work in community with a like-minded ensemble of different, daring artists of the future. 

The Program will culminate in an informal sharing of work for family and friends. 

All classes will take place at Terry Knickerbocker Studio, located in Industry City, in Sunset Park, Brooklyn–a 5 minute walk from the express N and D trains at 36th Street.

Tuition – $950


Master Classes

7.5 Hours of Master Classes / Q+A

Hear From Our Students

I had Peter for the 6-week Summer Intensive. Peter challenged and pushed me to live truthfully as an actor throughout the entire session. I have tremendous appreciation and respect for him as a teacher of the Meisner technique. For what he taught me and how much I have grown through his feedback and guidance in such a short period of time, I am truly grateful.

Summer Intensive Student

I participated in the Summer Intensive & it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! I am more fully self-expressed, allowing my inner self to match my outer. Terry, Nate, Matt & Kana are some of the most high integrity teachers I’ve had the pleasure to learn with. If you are on the fence, just take the leap, you will not regret it!

“I found myself surrounded by students and staff that were universally invested in my growth and success….”


This past summer, I had the privilege of participating in TK’s Summer Intensive. I have trained at other schools and studios in New York and I can confidently say that the Terry Knickerbocker Studio is something special. Their mission statement “training the passionate actor committed to excellence” couldn’t be more apt. All summer I found myself surrounded by students and staff that were universally invested in my growth and success. I was challenged, pushed, supported and encouraged to explore my body, mind, wants and needs – both as an actor, and as a person.

I could not recommend this program, or this studio more highly. I will be returning in the fall for their Two-Year Intensive and feel incredibly lucky for the opportunity to continue my training at this studio.
