Sanford Meisner, a great 20th-century acting teacher, defined acting as "The art of living truthfully in imaginary circumstances." In our acting school we help you foster a connection to your truths, what you value and where you feel deeply. The acting lessons we provide will teach you how to apply these insights to the creative process of acting, wherein you will realize the joy of full creative expression. We draw on an array of exercises developed by the best theater minds of the 20th-century to help you build a craft that is personal and accessible.

Our studio activities are made possible in part by the generosity of these organizations.
