The Brownstone Class

Founded by Lucas Van Engen and Adam Smith Jr.


"At The Brownstone Class, we approach every actor as a unique instrument with different tuning needs. Director and coach Lucas Van Engen works intuitively with each actor drawing from his 20 years of experience working on set and studying in New York City. 


Our goal is to merge each actor's personal story with the story being told in the script and to tell that story in the most compelling way possible. All of this is done with a professional camera setup administered by Director of Photography, Adam Smith with a special focus of getting usable footage for all students. 


Each week and every class starts off with a dialogue about working on the business of acting and helping each other achieve our dreams. The goal is that everyone that comes through this class will eventually have to miss class because they booked paid work."


Classes are now in session Mondays and Wednesdays. To book a class visit the website at or email [email protected]
