Winter Meisner Technique – January 8th – August 7th

Our core Meisner program is dedicated to you learning who you are and bringing that self-knowledge to your craft.  To be a great actor you absolutely must know yourself.  For that reason, the first year is a personal journey.  Learning where your passions lie, and where your defenses creep in. Growth as an actor doesn’t happen without growth as a person.  It can be an intimidating idea, but it will be some of the most fulfilling work of your lifetime.
