Class Description

Our Summer Acting Intensive is a rigorous 4 week program offering a taste of the Meisner Acting Technique, as well as a tremendous opportunity to experience a professional acting program through this Studio’s training methods, philosophies and community.

Mindful of work schedules, time and costs the Studio has devised a wide-ranging Intensive program that meets only 2 full 8-hour days plus 3-5 hours on Saturday each week.  It is one of the (if not the) most affordable Summer Intensives available in NYC.

You will learn through improvisation and exercises, the fundamentals of the Meisner technique along with physical movement and vocal work – all three integral components of the professional core program.  Saturdays the class will take part in specials – these are supplemental courses offered at the Studio (examples:  Rasa, Chekhov, On Camera, Combat, Career Intelligence, etc.)

During this Intensive you will observe, you will work, and you will be challenged.  You will learn how to expand your imagination and creativity as an artist in real and practical ways; and at the end of the 4 weeks you will have a clear understanding of the passion and dedication of this Studio, the principles and strength behind Sanford Meisner’s work and that the “foundation of acting is (truly) the reality of doing”.

You will be freer, more open, and on your way to being a more truthful and alive actor.

The Summer Intensive provides an incredible introduction into essential acting principles involved in a professional program.  It also offers a solid and effective foundation in advance of the two year core program in the Fall for those students who decide to continue along the professional career track. For working actors, the Summer Intensive will keep you connected and practiced as you continue to develop and refine your craft.

INTERVIEWS: For the summer program are going on now and will continue until classes are full.
