The structured Meisner classes are the backbone of what we do. These classes are designed to be taken in sequence. At each level, on-camera, improvisational, and business skills will be interwoven into the curriculum.
If youâ€™re serious about transforming your acting, this is the place to start. For professional actors in film and television, itâ€™s no secret that Meisner work is their superpower in both their life and their career. The benefits include a greater sense of truth, emotional depth, and flexibility in your work.
Beginners and experienced students are welcome. Outside practice is required. Students will work individually at their own level and will grow at their own rate. These interactive meetings will take place LIVE on ZOOM. Additional classes may be added depending on registration numbers.
The classes will meet 7:00 PM-9:30 PM PST. If a makeup or extra class is needed it will be held the following week. If you have to miss a class you are welcome to request a recording.
Price: $375 (9 classes)
Scholarship and Creative Financing are available upon request.

Kids Acting and Action Camp (CDA/Spokane area)
Get the best of both worlds! Both camps have been so popular over the years we thought, â€œLetâ€™s take the best parts from each camp and combine them.â€ Kind of like peanut butter and chocolate: two very different tastes that complement each other extremely well.
Often young actors are encouraged to learn new skills, and with Kidsâ€™ Half and Half Camp not only will they improve their acting skills but they will learn a valuable new skill set for the industry. And for those who love martial arts they get to utilize and demonstrate their skills and put them on camera. Their fight choreography scenes will be taped and viewed in class. They will be educated on acting, safety, and their best camera angles for their scene.
This 4-day long day camp includes:
Basic skills for on-camera auditions
On set etiquette and terminology
Stage combat/fight choreography
Intro to Meisner Acting Technique
In addition, students will learn the very important skills of self-defense (for real, not acting) in the Personal Safety portion of this camp. Super Educating and Super fun!
