What We Do…

Friends and Artists Studio teaches the complete craft of the actor - voice, speech, body and internal technique - in all of our classes and workshops.

Our founder and chief instructor, Sal Romeo, has studied, trained in, and taught the techniques of the most influential teachers to have come out of The Group Theater. His teaching style, rooted in the Stanislavski System, incorporates the teachings of Lee Strasberg, Sanford Meisner, Stella Adler, Uta Hagen, Harold Clurman, Robert Morris, and Jerzy Grotowski, and it is customized to suit each individual student.

Friends and Artists Studio is located in Burbank, California. Classes meet weekly. New students are asked to schedule a meeting with Sal.
