About the Studio

John DeSotelle Acting Studio is a professional Acting Studio located in the Time Square Art Center in the heart of the New York City theatre district.


We provide beginning to advance training for actors interested in working towards mastery of the full Meisner technique. Our goal is to prepare you for a professional career in acting and our methodology is deeply rooted in the Sanford Meisner acting technique - as it was intended. Studio classes are deliberately small and select, offering a safe and supportive environment and an intimate, personal approach to developing a strong acting foundation.


In association with The Nuance Theatre, the Studio provides a place where actors can study one of the most effective and authentic  acting methods, and then apply that training to practical experiences by actually doing it  - through opportunities with full theatrical productions, readings, festivals, and a student series, among other events. 


The John DeSotelle Studio welcomes students who are committed to developing their craft as professional actors. Great acting is not just talent and learning a technique it is mastering those skills and knowing how to work which demands time, effort and dedication.


If you are ready to work and would like to discuss your aspirations and how we can help make your goals a reality, please contact us for an interview. Call 917-775-0188 or 212-581-0188 or email
