Young Actors Space: The Original and Premier School for Young Actors!

Young Actors Space, established in 1979, is the original and premier school for performers as young as age 5 to adults. Our passion and commitment to developing young talent in the craft of acting for the last 30+ years has given us the opportunity to help nurture some of the brightest stars in the industry.

Our classes are structured with half improvisation and half scene study. We used truth based improv to accentuate the uniqueness of each actor. Our goal is to make the written scene seem like an improvisation. We train our actors to make strong specific choices based on the writer’s intent. YAS is a process oriented school that encourages its actors to get out of their heads and into their hearts.

“The Young Actors Space has the best classes for young actors.”
Emma Stone
"Patrick Day taught me how to cry, and I mean that as a compliment! YAS was my outlet to grow and learn and study acting as a teenager. I will always be grateful for what I learned there and still remember it as my favorite classes I ever took."
Ryan Malgarini
“The teachers at YAS are great. I've learned so much about getting into character for roles and how improvisation can come in handy both for auditions and the work itself. I know that the training I’ve had with YAS contributed to my success in landing a series, and I can't thank them enough.”
