Modeling. Acting. Life.
When you look back at an organization that’s been around as long as Barbizon, you consider where we started, where we’ve been and where we’re going. And we’ve come full circle, constantly evolving to stay on the cutting edge of the modeling and acting industry. From a single location that developed in 1939 on 5th Avenue in New York City, to operations in over 200 markets worldwide, we’ve kept our focus of nurturing dreams, a true belief in personal development, and a commitment to self-confidence building.
Our business model is not just defined by the industry we operate in, but also the personal success of each student that walks through our doors. We believe in giving children and teens the skills that lead them to success in modeling, acting, and in life. And although we can not guarantee the outcome or predict the future, we strive to provide a rewarding and uplifting experience to carry them through wherever life may take them. And while we believe in industry innovation and evolution, we are getting back to basics with a commitment to communication, customer service and providing more than modeling and acting instruction; we’re providing an everlasting experience.
The Barbizon experience is about discovering what makes you special, and developing your one-of-a-kind “star” quality for the whole world to see. Our expert modeling and acting training, along with life-skills instruction, will give you the confidence and tools to shine for a lifetime.
