Courses for Professional Actors

  • Meisner 1 year part-time course

    For experienced actors, the one year (part-time) Meisner course offers you a chance to further develop and refine your technique by delivering ‘truth’ to your audience. Unlike Method acting, which focuses on building character from the inside, outwards, the Meisner approach encourages the actor to build character from the outside so that the actors foundation is built upon a honest ‘reaction’ to what is happening around them in the moment, as opposed to internal ‘reflection’ which may not offer the same freedom and truth on stage.
