The job of Pro Actors Lab is to prepare you to work in the TV and Film professions. We strongly advise that all actors new to the Lab audit an acting class to be sure that they know what they are purchasing. Actors can always request a new scene if the one assigned is not to their liking.

PRO ACTORS LAB adheres to all provincial COVID guidelines. Our studio is open and running in-person classes. David Rotenberg’s classes will be offered in-person and online (via Zoom). See the Apply Online page for more information.

NOTE: moving forward every precaution will be taken to limit the risk associated with the virus. Our studio is cleaned and disinfected regularly. Class sizes are limited to allow for physical distancing. Scenes are blocked so no touching is required. Cameras are wiped down between takes. Face-masks and hand-sanitizer are 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.
