Full Description:

FROM TEXT TO BODY & BODY TO TEXT
An Acting Class With A Writing Twist


Knock Down The Walls Between You And Your Character

If you want to learn the secret to creating unforgettable characters, this is the class for you. Discover a new freedom in performance, as you learn this powerful new approach to bridging the gap between text and body, and between body and text.

Get Out Of Your Head

Get ready to blast through the big ideas, heady concepts and the rigid limitations of your own goals, and get back in touch with your deepest impulses to originate characters that demand the attention of your audience, because they are as real as you are.

Make Bold Choices

Everybody knows that actors need to make bold choices. What most people don't know is how to unlock the secrets that make these choices possible. That's where this class begins.

Activate Your Understanding of Text

By fusing the foundations of acting with interrelated concepts from our writing workshops, this class will activate your approach to a text. You'll learn how to translate deep script analysis into an active physical form, integrating your conscious and subconscious impulses to create a freedom in performance unlike any you've experienced.

Get Into The Scene

As the class continues, we will bridge the gap between improvisational freedom and the demands of a script. Rehearsing scenes from the masters, you will ground your work in the practical experience of creating multiple characters and pushing them to their limits.

A Special Writing Bonus


Becoming a truly great actor only begins with performance. That's why, as a member of this class, you'll receive weekly writing exercises, designed to build upon the work you've been doing. Use them as an actor to develop a deeper understanding of the dramatic underpinnings of your characters. Or take them one step further to begin creating your own dream role.

An Acclaimed Director To Guide You


Isabel Milenski is a critically acclaimed director and acting teacher of striking originality and emotional power. She has taught acting for The Juilliard School, Cincinnati Conservatory, Penn State University, and Hofstra University, where she also serves as Artistic Director of the Opera Theater program.

A Profound Journey

Isabel and I have designed this class together, as a one-of-a-kind integrated approach for actors and writers to deepen their craft. We hope it will provide as profound a journey for you as a student as it did for us in creating it.
