Berg Studios was founded in 1998 by Gregory Berger-Sobeck, alumnus and current faculty member of the Yale School of Drama​, where he teaches on-camera scene study.

Our studio is dedicated to cultivating the actor’s skillset through imaginative and behavioral work. Students strive for authenticity and bold originality by building a repeatable technique.

Our approach is twofold: first providing the actor with tools to make choices from the text, and then leading them to find their own spontaneous behavior. In doing so, the actor’s task shifts from self-consciously asking “What do I look like?” to examining “What do I see?” We believe that this foundation is applicable to film, television, and stage, across all genres and media.

The Berg Studios faculty is primarily composed of graduates of The Yale School of Drama and The Juilliard School. Unique among Los Angeles acting schools, we replicate the techniques of the top graduate acting programs in the country.

We offer on-going classes led by our core teaching staff of working professionals, as well as curated workshops taught by guest faculty from around the world.


We are pleased to announce that two Berg Studios faculty members, Cornell Womack and Tessa Auberjonois, are recipients of the prestigious Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship this year! This fellowship is granted to only 10 actors each year, selected from regional theatres around the country. Recipients are invited to study closely with Master Teachers including Lynn Redgrave, David Hyde Pierce, and Phylicia Rashad.
