What type of class? Login/Join

I believe that all good classes are teaching the same core skills. They simply have different teaching tools to get you there.

The way Meisner puts it is:
1) your talent comes from your instincts
2) acting is living truthfully in the imaginary circumstances
3) acting is self-betrayal - (quoting George Bernard Shaw)which is the big one
4) all good performances require risk-taking.

The first step the actor's journey is to find out what each of those skills really mean.

Don't get persuaded by hype and glitz and false promises and slick marketing. If you're not learning those skills, you're not in a professional acting class.

The hardest part is to give up controlling how others see you and what they might think. David Kagen's School of Film Acting
