Summer Meisner Acting Intensive

The Meisner Intensive

The Terry Knickerbocker Studio Summer 6-Week Intensive, is the ultimate training ground for actors; both new and professional, seeking to take their craft to new heights. Designed to cater to all levels of experience, this intensive is an invitation to explore the limits of your acting instrument, to break free from old habits, and to take your performance to the next level.

Led by renowned acting teacher, Terry Knickerbocker, the Summer Meisner Acting Intensive follows Sanford Meisner‘s traditional sequence of improvisational exercises and basic scene work, starting with the repetition exercise and ending with the first scene.

Voice and Movement Intensives

At the Terry Knickerbocker Studio, we believe that true development as an actor comes from a holistic approach to training. That’s why we encourage all summer students to add the Voice and Movement Intensives to their program. The Voice and Movement Intensive are designed to develop your self-awareness and understanding of relaxation and openness. Through visualization and cultivation of new images of the inner workings of your body and breath, you will access more direct expression of thought, feeling, and impulse. The training of the Voice and Movement Intensives also supports the rich emotional access of the Meisner work.
