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.

Teaching far more than movement, the instructors at Art of Dance aim to instill in kids and adults a love for physical activity as well as self-confidence and discipline. And in doing so they bring in experts, including members of the American Ballet Theater or Rockettes, to inspire young minds and show them where hard work might lead. Inside the 8,000-square-foot facility, five studios host classes that train students as young as 2.5 years in the disciplines of tumbling, ballet, jazz, tap, and hip-hop. While they pirouette or pop and lock on sprung floors, parents enjoy WiFi in the quiet waiting room or watch the action through one-way windows. During the summer, kids enroll in camps that range in focus from bolstering the imagination with theater to ballet-intensive dancing.
