SIX WEEK ACTING COURSE: INTENSIVE TRAINING
The Meisner Foundations Course is for aspiring actors and for established actors who are new to the Meisner Technique.
It is designed to introduce students to the method and to lay the foundations for further study and entry into the core Meisner training program.
The course is an opportunity to challenge yourself and discover your emotional truth.
Each week students will work through acting exercises encouraging them to progressively step out of their comfort zone.
Through the cornerstone exercise of Meisner repetition students learn how to connect with the other actor. Importantly, the course trains actors to delve into their own emotional experiences and teaches them to use their imagination to create the improvised exercises that are the hallmark of the Meisner Technique.
These skills are necessary for giving powerful, truthful and memorable performances on screen and stage.

MEISNER SHORT COURSE OUTCOME
The course introduces new and working actors to the Meisner Technique. It covers the first modules of the Meisner Course offered at the Actors Door Studio.
Once students complete Foundations they will be able to continue on to Acting Technique I.
WHY TAKE THE SHORT COURSE:
If you take the course, you will learn practical acting skills that you can begin to apply almost immediately to your acting – as well as in your everyday life.
In addition to the practical hands-on skills you will learn, the course offers students a unique opportunity to meet and work with like-minded actors. Through the Meisner Foundations short course, you will also get the opportunity to join the vibrant, ever growing, but select community of actors attending the Actors Door Studio.
The relationships you build during the course will stay with you well after the course is finished.
PREPARE YOURSELF TO BE CHALLENGED!
The Meisner Technique is a full method acting training program designed for people who want to pursue acting professionally. In each acting class you will be challenged; progressively invited to venture outside of your comfort zone. You need to allow yourself to embrace the technique with an open mind and open heart. If you do, the technique has the power to really transform you not only as an actor, but also as an individual.
All welcome, you don’t need to have any previous experience in acting. In fact the less experience the better!
WHY STUDY IT HERE:
Meisner classes at the Actors Door Studio are unique. They run as mini workshops giving students the opportunity to progressively test their boundaries and take themselves out of their comfort zone. Students progress at their own pace and in line with their individual strengths and weaknesses. Instructors continuously encourage and provide the support for students to challenge themselves further, each session.
The Actors Door Studio is different; Meisner Technique is the only acting method taught at the studio. The studio specialises in the Meisner Technique, the most effective actor training method in eliciting truthful, powerful performances on stage and on screen.
Our other point of difference is our insistence on quality as opposed to quantity. We purposely keep class numbers small so students can take maximum benefit from the teacher’s specialist instruction.
If you graduate from the Actors Door Studio, you will be part of a select number of actors to do so.
