Two Year Professional Acting Program

»The truth of ourselves is the root of our acting.«
Sanford Meisner

Upcoming

1st year: total length – 32 weeks (approximately 9 hours a week)

The training begins with a three-month period of intensive improvisational work, including the”Repetition Exercise” in which actors learn to take the attention off themselves and put it on their partners’ real behavior, allowing it to affect them and cause a truthful reaction. Students then apply this strong beginning in their ability to “live truthfully” to modern scene work. The rest of the year is devoted to a heightening of this sense of truth and the actors’ emotional depth through more improvisational work and scenes. After nine months, the actors emerge as more honest human beings with instruments ready to act truthfully in film, television, and the stage.
