Regardless of your current skill level as an actor, this class is specifically designed to open up additional pathways toward excellence in your actor’s journey. While based on the teachings and activities of Sanford Meisner, the class also makes use of many other exercises and perspectives, including those drawn from the instructor’s own wide-ranging experience as an actor and teacher of acting.
