Service Description

In this foundational, conservatory style course, actors will practice artistic bravery and exploration while learning foundational Stanislavski System, Meisner, and Chekhov techniques, immediately putting them into practice through short scenes and individual exercises. Foundational techniques in vocal production and physicality will further build technique, confidence, instinct, and imagination. This is an ongoing course where new scenes and exercises are given every 6 weeks, allowing students a true conservatory level training ground which will build a strong grasp of acting techniques and how to employ them.
