Fall Intensive

Learn the fundamentals of the Meisner technique in this nine-week introductory class.

This course is perfect for those looking to brush up on their connection to truthful response or those wanting to sample the work prior to committing to a Two Year Professional Acting Conservatory.

We will follow Sanford Meisner’s traditional sequence of improvisational exercises, starting with repetition. Students gradually start to work with imaginary circumstances, and then deepen and expand the work over the course of nine weeks, concluding with basic scene work. Students start to cultivate certain core acting skills. Learn how to listen deeply, respond truthfully, and express yourself fully under any imaginary circumstances.

“I don’t even know where to start. I joined the Intro to Meisner course to become a better actor. During the process, I not only became a better actor but also a better person. The technique and my dedicated teacher opened my eyes in so many ways. I loved how intimate the class setting was and I felt comfortable. I loved the honesty; there’s no bullshit in this class. You come in ready to give acting your all. After the course I’ve become more professional and I always keep striving for better.  I LOVED this class and the technique so much! I decided to join the Two-Year Conservatory! I recommend the Intro to Meisner class to all actors.”
