In response to the COVID-19 virus, PRO ACTORS LAB will be closed until mid-June or “Stage 2” at the earliest.

Until then, David Rotenberg is offering a ZOOM class and online coaching via FaceTime. Please go to the Apply Online page for more info.


NOTE: once classes resume, moving forward every precaution will be taken to limit the risk associated with the virus. The studio is cleaned and disinfected regularly. Class sizes will be limited to 6-8 people to allow for physical distancing. Scenes will be blocked and set up so no touching is required. Cameras will be wiped down between takes. Face-masks and hand-sanitizer will be mandatory.
      THERE WILL BE NO PENALTY FOR MISSING CLASS OR IF A CLASS IS POSTPONED: Anyone with cold or flu symptoms who is taking class must stay home. And any student who misses class will be guaranteed credit toward future classes with their (same) instructor, when they can return.
      Please take care, and we hope to see you all very soon!


The Professional Actors Lab is designed for professional actors and those who wish to enter the profession. It is dedicated to the study of the professional actor’s question:

How do I make my work more compelling ?

Our classes and workshops offer training and support which allow the professional artist every possibility for growth and personal discovery.

David Rotenberg founded The Professional Actors Lab in 2004. He has over 30 years of experience as a writer, director and master acting teacher. See his bio for more information.
