FOUNDATIONS of ACTING

Meisner Traditional Program

The class  begins with a 3 month training of intensive improvisational work, including the Repetition Exercise, in which actors learn to take the attention off themselves and put it on their partners' real behavior, allowing it to affect them and cause a truthful reaction. Students then apply this strong beginning in their ability to "live truthfully" to modern scene work. The rest of the program is devoted to a heightening of this sense of truth and the actors' emotional depth through more improvisational work and scenes.  After nine months, the actors emerge more honest human beings with instruments ready to act truthfully in film, television, and the stage.

Meets: Monday nights 6:30pm to 9:30pm and Thursday Nights 6:30pm to 9:30pm.

Duration: Approx 8 to 9 months (up to Teacher discretion as some classes move faster than others)

Tuition: $360 per month 

Class start date: September 14th 2023

MEISNER SECOND YEAR

Students interested in continuing on to achieve their Certificate of Completion- authorized by the Sanford Meisner Estate, James Carville and Alex Taylor- will be invited to interview based on the quality of their work & work ethic throughout their First Year training. 

Continuing to sharpen the tools forged in the First Year (Traditional or Accelerated), actors move into advanced and highly emotional improvisational work, script interpretation, character crafting, and advanced scenes. The Second Year student will find success in learning to develop an impeccable work ethic and a commitment to overall quality in her craft. This course demands a level of surrender to character that requires deliberate practice and allows students to consistently create and live as complex human beings in their art. Through the Second Year course of study, actors fine-tune their process so it is a trusted, reliable way to GET work, KEEP work, and most importantly, DO great work.
