an acting studio

for everyone


We are ‘the chapel of whatever works,’ not one size fits all. We teach to each individual using Katselas Technique as a base.


A professional actor knows how to make things go right. We help actors really hone those skills.


Moving your career forward in concrete steps by letting the industry know you exist.


Become a more fully expressed actor through diving deeper into who you are and what is holding you back as a person.


Rob Zimmerman and Peter Allas have a combined 75 years of industry experience and 50 years of helping to train hundreds of talented actors in over 45 countries. For the last fifteen years, they have run the most successful acting program (BHP/SF), now z/a studio, in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Honolulu, and online.
