From acting alongside Al Pacino to working with the casting directors of Boardwalk Empire and Argo, Joshua Nelson knows firsthand the hurdles actors must face, both in front of and behind the camera. As the head instructor at LaGuardia Acting Studio, he draws on his 20-plus years of experience to train actors of all ages and skill levels. Instead of emphasizing specific methods, Joshua weaves elements of Stanislavski, Strasberg, and other techniques into lessons tailored to each individual student. With these foundations of craft intact, pupils strengthen their chops for film, television, and commercials through scene studies and character development exercises. Joshua also emphasizes the business side of the industry by training his students in audition etiquette and resume writing.

The duo also racked up an impressive set of Broadway credits—Asbury most recently played Mr. Ovington in the hit _How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying_—and starred in more television commercials than a dog who can talk. Nowadays, the two continue their performing-arts work while co-owning and co-directing their studio, leading their team as they teach students from 3-year-olds to adults. The studio’s eclectic curricula hone students’ skills in disciplines such as musical theater, dance, and guitar.
