History… Tradition… Legacy…

sandy_profileWe believe that the purpose of an acting school is to get you working professionally. And that begins with Professional Level training. Training that has worked for over 75 years. Training that continues to work today, for a new generation of actors. Training based on a rich history and deep tradition. Guided by Martin Barter, a master teacher, you will embark on a series of interdependent, sequential exercises. You will absorb the building blocks of one of the strongest acting foundations available today. They create in you an emotionally live actor of depth, imagination and truth. We teach the Meisner Technique the way Sandy taught it, honoring his legacy. The results speak for themselves. Graduates of this technique have won 13 Academy Awards, 8 Emmys and 6 Tonys.
