Adult Fall Sessions
The Modern Meisner Method (TEAM* Acting)
Learn the basics of the ‘Meisner Method’ and much more from a protégé of the Master himself, who has put his technique to work in all forms of entertainment with great success over the course of his 50 year career. Classes are designed specifically for the professionally minded actor seeking instruction in a formal technique. The intention is to develop the actors craft in a conscientious manner that uses the "tools" to construct masterful characterization and avoid falling into ‘bad habits.’ To our knowledge we are the only organization training in the ‘Meisner Technique’ in the Hudson Valley. With a proven record of success over five decades, we have achieved unparalleled success worldwide on stage, in film and TV. What Meisner has taught us, and we have learned from our experience, we gladly pass on to those willing to commit their skills to creating a greater good. In so doing, we will teach you the craft, the business and the conduct needed to build a solid career and a future of your own design. (* Totally Evolved Acting Method)
