The Gately/Poole Acting Conservatory is a unique school which has created the The Acting Intensives as the foundation of its training program. It is based upon the Meisner Technique with additional innovations developed by Richard Poole and Kathryn Gately. This approach to training was designed to allow actors, who have already begun to work professionally, to continue their careers while strengthing their skills and growth as artists.
ACTING Programs and INTENSIVES
The Gately/Poole Acting Intensives are the foundation of the Gately/Poole training program. They are designed for actors who would prefer an accelerated, concentrated conservatory style training program to conventional, long-term programs.
It allows actors the opportunity to continue to pursue a career while honing and developing their skills.
