I've enjoyed studying the Meisner technique, with the following courses:

The Foundations of Acting Program

  • Comprehensive training in Meisner Technique for seasoned actors as well as those new to acting. Training is focused on liberating the actor from self conciousness, accessing emotional life and connecting with impulses.

Scene Study – Principals & Analysis

  • Principals & Analysis focuses on the interplay between characters in a scene.
  • This class takes actors through the steps of breaking down a script and bringing a scene to life. Actors are given one scene to work on over the course of 8 weeks and each class explores a different concept through discussion, exercises and film clips which elucidate the concept in action. Actors work to bring that concept to life in their own scene work. Over time an actor deepens their understanding of these principals and learns.
  • Each class focus builds on the the previous class work. Scenes are filmed twice, for self-assessment and for a record of the actors work.
