What is Terry Knickerbocker Studio?



An Introduction to Terry Knickerbocker Studio and his Philosophy on Acting

Contributed, with authority, by Terry Knickerbocker

You’ve found us. Congratulations. You have taken the first step. You know you want–or rather need, which is more training for your craft. You’ve come to the right place.

What follows is the true turning point, where you really find what acting means to you and the realization of your potential.

One question I always ask my students in the fist part of any class is, “How can you be your own North Star?” Once your realization is complete, then the true fun begins. Through determination, critique, and hard work – you get to shape the actor that will emerge.

The Meisner training you’ll receive at the Terry Knickerbocker Studio will give you an advantage. You’ll discover an effective approach to acting, but more importantly, you’ll discover yourself.

It’s not enough to be able to take a script and act it out. People want to see your individual interpretation of a play and a character. Otherwise, the same people would be doing the same roles over and over.

At our studio, you’ll find what makes you, YOU.  Your point of view is important and needs to be experienced in an intimate way that allows others to be welcomed in by YOUR hopes and YOUR fears. The same story can be told so many different ways and once you’ve found your voice, only then will it be truly unique.

The Terry Knickerbocker Studio not only will help you find your own voice but will foster it, allowing it to grow and blossom, so that it must be heard.
