About LB Acting Studio

The LB Acting Studio is a professional on-camera acting studio located in downtown Toronto, Canada. We believe the craft of acting exists to serve the truth and not the other way around. Expressing yourself through the work is more important than figuring out what “they” want.

Our mandate is to bring joy and authenticity to the process of preparing for & delivering a role. We aim to help actors advance their careers, to book more work & excel while on-set.

Ever feel that the acting techniques you’re learning don’t apply when you get to the audition? You don’t seem to be able to make them work on a set or apply to a director’s note. Want the confidence to self-direct while on-set? Work on scenes, monologue or audition technique at the LB Acting Studio.

The LB Acting Studio offers weekly group classes, workshops and  private coaching sessions. As well as, private coach & taping sessions.

We offer new students the opportunity to audit a class for free
