Sanford Meisner said that, ‘acting is the ability to live truthfully under imaginary circumstances.’ In this intensive, we will work on the first half of that statement: living truthfully. Working through a series of innovative, step-by-step improvisational exercises we will train you to be thoroughly responsive, emotionally alive, spontaneous and absolutely grounded in the reality of what is happening at any given moment with any given person. These foundational exercises will get you out of your head and into being absolutely present to the world around you and the people with whom you share it.

We are certified instructors, specializing in the Meisner Approach to Acting. What's more, we are smart, funny, passionate, and just a little bit punk. We believe that your acting should be as real as the shirt on your back.
We train actors to live as authentically on stage (or in front of a camera)...
