Classes & Coaching

Intermediate / Advanced Acting

 

This Is An Ongoing Class With A 10 Week Initial Commitment For New Students. 

This is a process class for the intermediate and advanced actor. This class will begin with some basic acting exercises and craft building work then move into a nuts-and-bolts look at scene study that will focus on defining beats, exploring relationship, moment-to-moment work, spacial relationship, needs/wants, intentions, always working off of what your scene partner is giving you, all rooted in the given imaginary circumstances.

We will spend much time working toward a visceral "impulse-response."

What My Students Think

"I have been in class for approximately 2 months. I am so grateful to him for his incredible insight into every student, speaking to them in ways they can understand so that they can follow through. He's able to capture everything we need to know in order to be excellent in our craft. While studying with him I booked three acting jobs. Two for Stage and one for Television. I really give him credit for giving me the confidence during the auditioning process in order for me to get the call saying, "you booked it". Thank you Michael. Thank you."
