OUR TRAINING IS TIMELESS - AGE IS JUST A NUMBER
Known as theater’s best-kept secret, the Sanford Meisner technique is now recognized as the healthiest and most enjoyable approach to acting. Ahead of his time, Sandy Meisner developed tools for actors that emphasize staying in the present moment and placing full attention on one’s partner. These skills not only teach how to become a better artist but also how to become a better communicator in all areas of life. For actors, directors, and all students of the performing arts, this master class is of great practical value. Check out the Meisner Master Acting Class – available in DVD or Streaming.
The Vimeo Instant Streaming is a 4 hour class available right now on any device that accesses Vimeo. This acting course is for all acting students and directors who want to access the core of Sanford Meisner’s style of teaching at any time, with a focus on honing the specific techniques used in the Meisner approach to acting.
