Welcome to Acting for Non Actors – a New York based training and development studio!   

The Acting for Non Actors courses (previously a division of Lessons 4 Fun Studio) were founded by Nelly Odessa in July 2007, with the mission of offering opportunities to the people of New York (and the tri-state area) to improve their public speaking and communication skills, to explore and expand their creativity, and to try something new, fun and exciting in a safe and supportive environment.

 Our acting classes are unique in that they are designed specifically for the non-actor.

    • Classes are small and highly interactive.  Each participant receives individual attention from the instructor.


    •  Learning happens in a friendly and supportive environment- ideal for all, especially adult beginners.


    • The instructor is an expert in the field on acting and personal/professional development and specializes in coaching non actors. 


    • Our registration process ensures that the class of your interest is right for you.


    • We are dedicated to supporting your personal and professional growth, as well as providing you with a memorable experience. 


“All the arts we practice are apprenticeship. The big art is our life.”
