Intro to Meisner Technique - Enrolling Now!

Introduction to Meisner Technique - Interviewing now!

February 9 – April 2
Mondays and Thursdays 6:30pm to 9:30pm

Studio 210
2929 4th Ave South, Minneapolis

Fee $325 per student, Limited 10 students

An introduction to the Sanford Meisner approach to acting technique – sixteen acting classes are conducted in an eight-week session. In this class the actor works to learn and apply advanced acting principles through a step-by-step progression of exercises that develop his/her ability to work organically, and to create truthful and expressive behavior in acting. This workshop is for actors of all experience levels ages 21 and over.

Sanford Meisner defined acting as “living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.” Meisner Technique instills in actors the basic, essential skills of: listening, responding truthfully and spontaneously, committing to actions, using imagination to fully create and personalize a set of given circumstances, and identifying each individual’s personal emotional triggers. Meisner Technique helps actors "get out of their head" and into the moment.

Attendance to all class meetings in addition to rehearsals outside of class is expected.

The class is open to anyone age 21 and over with an interest and willingness to commit to the intensive demands of actor training, however a face-to-face or phone interview is necessary before acceptance into the workshop.

If invited to participate, a $50 deposit will be required to hold your place. The deposit is refundable if you cancel your registration one (1) week before the beginning of the first class. The balance is to be paid on the first day of class and is non-refundable.
