An introduction to the Sanford Meisner approach to acting technique – sixteen acting classes are conducted in an eight-week session. In this class the actor works to learn and apply fundemental acting principles through a step-by-step progression of exercises that develop his/her ability to work organically and to create truthful and expressive behavior in acting. This workshop is for actors of all experience levels ages 21 and over.

Sanford Meisner defined acting as “living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.” Meisner Technique instills in actors the basic, essential skills of: listening, responding truthfully and spontaneously, committing to actions, using imagination to fully create and personalize a set of given circumstances, and identifying each individual’s personal emotional triggers. Meisner Technique helps actors "get out of their head" and into the moment.

Attendance to all class meetings in addition to rehearsals outside of class is expected.

The class is open to anyone age 21 and over with an interest and willingness to commit to the intensive demands of actor training, however a face-to-face or phone interview is necessary before acceptance into the workshop.

If invited to participate, a $100 deposit will be required to hold your place. The deposit is refundable if you cancel your registration two (2) weeks before the beginning of the first class. The balance is to be paid on the first day of class and is non-refundable.

Here's some great feedback from recent students:

"This class stretched my imagination while stripping everything superfluous; calling me to into the simplest, most specific, and most truthful work I can do in every moment." – Stanzi Schalter

"The class absolutely did wonders for me and can do the same for anyone else willing to put the work in." – Chris Carney

"Meisner Technique has certainly been helpful to me as an actor, particularly for improv.  I had a successful audition where I was given a situation in which I had to improv, and it was helpful to be able to draw on the exercises we’d been doing in class - the repetition and personalization of circumstances.  I was actually cast in this feature length film as a result." – Lynda Dahl
