Private Lessons

Private Training with NYCSS

**Due to the current Pandemic, we are staying malleable in our planned programming. We are monitoring the situation closely and adjusting for State and local mandates**

While NYCSS provides a weekly Monday night class, it may not always fit your schedule or needs. Private lessons may be the better way to go! This more individualized approach to your training will help you learn faster with the specificity that comes from one on one attention. This is perfect when preparing for an audition/role, or gives you more opportunities to intensify your training.

NYCSS offers private lessons which provide quality instruction paired with the flexibility and convenience of working around your schedule. The individual attention of private lessons will polish skills and can fix problems early before they become a habit.

NYCSS on Zoom!
NYCSS is excited to begin offering private lessons over zoom. Whether individually or in a small group, get face to face with an NYCSS instructor and keep on training, even from home!

We are also happy to work outside in a park when the weather cooperates. There are several parks we rehearse/train in which don’t mind a little screen/stage combat happening. If this is the plan, please be prepared to cover the cost of moving to an indoor space if the weather does not cooperate. A lesson can not be cancelled due to the weather.

Locations
You are responsible for covering fees for space. Lessons are typically offered in midtown at Studio 353 (353 48th St. between 8th/9th) or Ripley-Grier Studios (520 8th Ave) and run between $25-$30/hr. 

If you have access to a space for free our instructors may be able to travel to you. 

Cancellation policy
Instructors are arranging their schedules to facilitate this training which includes passing up other gigs. If you need to reschedule a lesson it requires one week notice or you will be expected to pay the fee. This may include space rental fees if it can not be cancelled.
