What we're about

Film Industry level Acting Class for Professionals

The purpose:

1) To help existing professional actors book more work by having a place locally where they can come and work out. This is a welcome opportunity for those who do not want to travel all the way into London for professional level classes to benefit from a coach, teaching in Surrey.

2) To teach those looking to move into the profession of acting. Film and Theatre professional will benefit from the work we do equally.

Our Attitude:

Fun but Committed. You won't find greater support in another class!

Acting needs to be fun and enjoyable. But it also needs to be respected. We respect it through our attitude towards it. We hold ourselves to a higher level and we keep promises we make (to ourselves and to others). We take having fun seriously because it's our profession or we want it to be. The industry expects nothing less. The industry has a choice. We make them sit up and notice us through our work and our attitude.

The Work:

We aim to offer different classes (Events) in this group.

* Scene study. We work with you on scenes and monologues. You can bring in something (good for upcoming auditions) or we can provide - You need to be a member of this meet up group to join. Membership of the group is free.

* Meisner Technique Fundamentals - We introduce you to the fundamentals of the Meisner Technique, or if you've studied elsewhere, you can come in and workout with us.

* In addition to the Fundamentals class, we offer other more advanced classes in the Meisner Technique to those who are ready. These classes are by invitation.

The Students:

The Students we are currently accepting have the following qualities:

· Very enthusiastic, hungry to act with a 'can't get enough attitude'

· Respectful of others and themselves

· Are coachable and directable.

· Pay attention to detail.

The Instructor:

Michael is an Award-Winning Professional Actor and Film-maker. He was one of the first Acting coaches to bring the Meisner Technique to the UK from the United States in 1998. With over 20 years experience as an Actor, Writer and Director, Michael has credits in both stage and screen on both sides of the Atlantic. Michael has taught in UK Drama schools as well as his own classes. He was hired by Sky television to work with the kids from Strictly High school.

Admission:

We offer serious training here and as with any institution that offers serious training we are looking for certain qualities in our students. We also offer the classes very affordably because we don't want lack of funds to get in the way of any student of Acting who is committed. Our cheapest class is just £5 per class. So we can be picky.

** Our students rate this class as having very high value for money.

Bad Guy Disclaimer:

There are 5 questions you need to respond to after you click "Request to Join". These entry questions form a contract between you and the class. If you accept the terms to gain entry into the group, you'll be accountable to them. And here's the bad guy part: You'll be removed from the group if you don't abide by them. No exceptions. If you're sick, you have a holiday booked, etc, etc., don't join until you know you can attend.

We keep the group size small so that students who are serious can benefit.

Looking forward to helping you achieve your goals and reach your dreams.

Upcoming events (5+)

Meisner Technique (Fundamentals)

Kingsgate Church

£5.00

This is an ongoing weekly class at the heart of Kingston. We work with you very much as individuals in this class, no matter what your training background. The classes start out very easy, and each week students are challenged to take their work further and get out of their comfort zones. We focus on your emotional understanding, (as opposed to intellectual understanding) a teaching that is sadly very lacking in school curricula to help you get out of your head. You will learn things like how to work with subtext, how to read other people's body language, how you come across through the way you carry yourself , how to relate to and read others, developing a heightened sense of awareness. You'll be encouraged to take risks, to get in touch with your emotions (the tools of the Actors trade). Please read this Group's information about these weekly on-going classes. Classes are £5 per class for each student for a limited time.
