Black Box Studios provides collaborative theater workshops for all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. Over 400 students were enrolled in programs for the 2011-12 Fall and Spring sessions.
Opened by Matt Okin in 2007, BBS offers programs at its Teaneck, New Jersey location for adults, teens, and children that run year-round and, in most cases, culminate in fully-staged productions open to family, friends, and the community.
BBS also teaches acting classes and runs drama clubs in private schools and day schools in Bergen County and the Greater New York area, offers private coaching in acting, singing, and musical theater, provides theater therapy programs for children and adults with disabilities, and has popular theater day camps in the summer for kids and teens.
The experience of Black Box’s professional instructors covers all disciplines- acting, singing, dancing, music performance and composition, directing, producing, writing, managing, and lighting- and comes from Broadway, off-Broadway, film, concerts, television, and new media. They teach using an improv-based method that BBS’ founders developed during their years working in theater in New York City.
