The Acting Intensive

A NEW WAY TO TRAIN ACTORS

Dates: May 15th - June 3rd, 2017

With a background for many years heading a University MFA & BFA professional acting degree program and professional conservatory program, we place great value in thorough, in-depth training. We recognize, however, that such a program is costly, and it can take several years to complete. To address this issue, members of the industry requested that we create a new approach. It offers the same comprehensive training, but it is accelerated, and it permits actors to pursue a career while developing their talent.

In this 2-3 week program, you receive constant updates on your growth, and individual feedback. We review your progression daily, because when you commit to coming to train with us, we commit to you. Our standards are high. That’s what you get when studying with one of the most renowned and comprehensive conservatories in the world.

To see the success of our students, visit the alumni page. We have taught stars in every area of the industry. After the program, they do not remain students. They go from the classroom to the stage and screen.

ALUMNI HAVE WON MANY PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS INCLUDING: the TONY, EMMY, GOLDEN GLOBE, JOSEPH JEFFERSON, OUTER CRITICS, DRAMA DESK, SAG, OBIE, and THEATRE WORLD


London Summer Acting Intensive

Meisner & New Innovations in Actor Training

DATES: Monday, July 10 to Saturday, July 22, 2017
LOCATION:
Rose Bruford College
London, UK

 

A two-week intensive "Meisner Acting for Stage and Camera" will be a new approach covering the first Module of the Meisner Technique, as well as dynamic innovations in training developed by Master Teachers Kathryn Gately and Richard Poole. Actors will discover how to use themselves simply, truthfully, poetically, and expansively, thru action in the world of the dramatic imagination. Using exercises and scenes, students will become more vivid, theatrical, and emotionally free. The specificity of objectives and relationships will be carefully addressed and integrated through voice and movement classes. There will be an introduction to Williamson, a Physical-Release Technique. This program is designed for actors who wish to engage in a concentrated, 21st century approach to on-camera and stage acting

Rose Buford College, the leading college for international programs in England, offers the perfect setting with a beautiful campus and wonderful studios.  With only a twenty-minute train ride from downtown London, the location is ideal.  

Particularly unique was the international combination of students in the classroom.  American and European students, with different sensibilities and training backgrounds, contributed to each other's learning experience in many different ways. A rich environment was created integrating and blending the best of acting traditions from Europe and the United States.


Private Coaching

 

A good audition is the only way you will be hired. Go to the audition prepared - Monologues and Cold Readings via Skype or Appointment. or come to the school and get a thorough preparation from the entire faculty: text interpretation, shaping the text for the build and climax, finding the emotional depth, working with the voice and physical technique to get a full, rich, expressive presentation.
