Beginner Acting Classes

The “Reality of Doing” is the foundation of the Sanford Meisner approach to acting. Our Beginner Acting Classes start off with the fundamental Meisner Technique exercise called, “The Repetition Exercise.” This fundamental exercise trains actors in the habit of really listening, getting the attention off themselves, leaving themselves vulnerable, and really responding truthfully to the other actor’s behavior.

Advanced Acting Classes

Advanced Acting Class (Phase 2), continues to build upon the work from Phase 1. This work is individualized and designed in a very systematic, step-by-step fashion in order for the actor to develop a habitual way of working. The instructor arranges semi-private meetings with students new to Phase 2 to discuss and explain “emotional preparation.” Emotional preparation is the tool the actor uses to generate a truthful, emotional life. Its how the actor connects him/herself emotionally to the prior circumstances.
