Located at 208 W 37th St, New York, The William Esper Studio is dedicated to the work of Sanford Meisner and William Esper, along with the preposition that acting is a creative art and true excellence in its practice may only be achieved through total mastery of technical craft.
The Studio was established in 1965 and today ranks as one of the most respected professional actor training studios in the United States.
Led by legendary acting teacher William Esper, the Studio has trained a large number of accomplished professional actors who are active in Film, Television and Theatre. Also contributing to this reputation is a passionate, involved student body and a faculty of dedicated master teachers. All the work at the Studio is based on William Esper’s 17-year association with Sanford Meisner, with whom he worked in close collaboration as both a teacher and director.
Devoted to the Sanford Meisner method, Esper offers instruction to actors at various stages of development for prices startlingly lower than universities charge. Tuition ranges from $425 a month for part-time classes to $18,000 a year for full time classes at the William Esper Studio.
