This is not a class for beginners. It is ideal for those actors who find themselves dissatisfied with their current approach and hungry for a fresh, practical, and no-nonsense way of working.
Lewis keeps it simple.
*This class is a prerequisite to many of the other classes at our studio. Taking this class is not a guarantee of entrance into On Camera with Lewis.
Lewis will make a hands-on assessment of the best class placement for you moving forward if you wish to continue in your training with us.
This class is capped at 18 students

The New to LB Acting Studio class is where Lewis outlines the philosophy and science of his highly successful approach to acting. Part lecture, part Q&A with plenty of on camera time, this class will take you through a series of drills and exercises that can be taken away and practiced on your own and with fellow actors.
This class is simple and straight forward: there are no misleading buzzwords or clever theories. You will learn how to do consciously what you do unconsciously. You will come to depend more on your own innate abilities as a human being rather than an actor dependent on “methods” or “theories” for acting.
You will learn the power to deploy empathy rather than “trying to relate”.
This class will increase confidence in your ability to memorize, analyze and become more responsive to direction.
It will enable you to meet the different demands that you are presented with at auditions and while on-set.
This workshop will introduce you to a radically different approach to your acting.
*Again this class is a prerequisite to Lewis’ On Camera Class and many of the other classes at our studio.
