    Full Time Program:

    The Full-time Program provides the students with a complete education. Students will study world history, civilizations and culture, emphasizing periods of style, dialect and etiquette. In addition, there is a detailed examination of story theory, script and character analysis. And most importantly, a practical study of foundational acting techniques is explored including Strasberg, Meisner, and Hagen. Students will also be led on a quest inward to emotional discovery and the breaking down of internal barriers. It is a highly individualized process, one that leads to a lasting vulnerability and openness that is a true strength. Students are taught how to find, control and deeply understand emotions.


    Summer Programs:

    Whether you choose the Traditional Program or the advanced Encore Program, you will become a part of a dynamic, supportive community of fellow actors learning together, inspired by some of the most respected instructors in the industry. You are destined to gain skills and friendships you will value for a lifetime.
