Screen Actors Workshop Curriculum:
The backbone of our curriculum is Stanislavski’s Method; based on the principal that acting finds its expression in people’s responses to other people and circumstances. However not all actors respond to the same technique: Therefore our curriculum incorporates the best elements of Stanislavski combined with the most effective techniques of other proven methods including Meisner, Chekhov, Morris and Mamet. Blended with these methods are our own proven techniques, developed throughout many years of teaching experience. By not limiting our curriculum to only one particular method or technique, our unrestricted approach ensures our students receive a comprehensive, dynamic and well-rounded education.
- Comprehensive training in screen performance and technique
- Numerous levels of study available – from beginner intro to camera to cutting-edge advanced classes
“To Grasp the full significance of life is the actor’s duty, to interpret it is his problem, and to express it is his dedication.”
