Who this training is for

Students of any level take part to the same sessions and terms. This is because beginners can learn commitment and technique from professionals and advanced students, and professionals and advanced students can remember simple emotion connection and the absence of evident structures from beginners. It’s a very inspiring space, with a programme designed to form professional actors, driven enough to fight rejection at auditions and meetings, and ready and joyful about their lives and careers. They will get specific advice from the acting coach regarding their professional ‘Product’ (who they are or who they are disclosing to be as artists), by looking at everything starting from performance, attitude in meetings/auditions to headshots, showreels and self-presentations.

 

Course description

Each session includes both the unique Actor's Intimacy Training (AIT) and Scene work. This is the best option for your acting training: at each session you work on yourself, learn what your self-sabotages are, how to connect to your Emotion Tool and be assertive, how to be vulnerable and private in public, how to speak through your feelings and effectively use your voice, and also get to see how you improved your performance and lines delivery over time.

There will be few theoretical sections dedicated to specific levels, slightly more theoretical sections dedicated to all levels, and most of the time will be practical space for the students to train.

The student starts by working on the first step of the AIT, the Personal Private Moment, which they will execute every week until they 'pass' it, with the supervision of the coach and with the help of the feedback provided by the class. They will then proceed to the second step, the Celebration, and so on in this fashion. (Find out more here)

The Scene work will include both dialogues and monologues, both assigned and chosen by the students themselves. Focus on Cinema, Theatre, Commercial, TV/webseries will cycle and vary within each term. The Script Analysis technique will be taught. Comedy and Drama will both be covered.

The students will also learn the extremely useful skill of Sight-Reading: how to learn lines quickly and/or how to deliver efficiently while reading off the script.

Sense Memory and Emotion Memory, how to correctly and effectively perform Substitutions will be taught and helpful visualisations will be learned.

The Freedom Circle (or Emotion Circle) is a powerful group exercise that helps opening up our Tool. You can dance, move freely, or do whatever you feel like; it’s not about performance, it’s about freedom and listening to yourself by being in the Here and Now, moment by moment. The students will be part of this at least every two sessions. Prepare for a good sweat.

Students will practice some very powerful and useful group and solo Improvisations, designed by the greatest acting coaches in history, such as Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Susan Batson, Sanford Meisner. Improv is great to explore the actors’ limits.

They will learn how to feel confident and powerful on stage with the Circle of Protection sense memory exercise, and there will be some advanced sense memory and emotion memory exercises, designed by Strasberg or Batson, to practice when the student is ready.

 

Students will practice how to give and receive Feedback and the difference between cognitive and perceptive feedback. They will be able to improve their attitude and performance quality thanks to an objective observation from the coach and the group and thanks to the safe, judgment-free space. Being open and clear and Listening are both skills you learn when delivering and receiving this kind of feedback properly, so it’s immensely useful for an actor.

 

Some homework will usually be necessary (e.g. preparing the AIT step, learning lines, etc.).

 

Necessary to bring to class:

pen and paper

your script (1 extra copy for the coach)

any materials you might need to set up you AIT step

comfortable clothes

an open mind, willingness to discover who you really are and be kind to others!

 

Extras:

Possibility to shoot scenes and reels in class.

Writing exercises

Directing elements

Casting tips 

 

Attendance (please read this carefully)

Each term is an 8-week course plus 2 extra/recover sessions: this means that if for any reason you won’t be able to attend a session or a session get cancelled, you have these two chances to recover it. We normally allow all students to attend the two extra sessions in any case.

Please note we expect students to try and never miss out any session at all, as due to the nature of the training, they do need to be consistent. Nevertheless, we understand sickness and other commitments can come up (such as auditions or shootings), for which he have scheduled two extra sessions, to make sure nobody misses out on their training: so if a student is absent up to twice, they will usually be able to recover their session. Please note we allow up to 3 absences per 10-week term (that is 1 absence per 8-week term plus 2 extra sessions), after this the term can’t be confirmed as valid towards the count of 3 terms per Level in order to get a Level Completion Certification, unless you’re an advanced Strasberg Actor or student and the coach reckons you’ve reached the expected level anyway.

Course description

The unique Actor's Intimacy Training (AIT) and Scene work will be done alternately. This is the best option if you want to work only 2 hours per week and have more time for yourself. The training is the roughly the same as our Full Training, it’s just diluted over time. It’s a brilliant option to keep active as an actor and learn the Method while you work or study elsewhere.

There will be few theoretical sections dedicated to specific levels, slightly more theoretical sections dedicated to all levels, and most of the time will be practical space for the students to train.

This is especially important for Half-Time Trainees as they only get to work on AIT and Scenes once every fortnight, so missing a session would mean waiting a full month between the same session type.

Moving Training

Add-on to regular Strasberg Training

Wednesdays and Thursdays, 3 - 5 pm

2 hours per week
£100 per Moving Term

WALKING GESTURES THROUGH SPACE, MOVING OUR STORY AROUND.

 

Our body tells its own story. No dramaturgy needed, no words, no set choreography…

But are we aware of what story we tell? 

 

This course will focus on how to build up body awareness and on how to improve our connection with a set space and people inhabiting that same space with us, through various movements techniques. 

We’ll work on topics and tasks, both individually and in groups, to explore everyone’s innate movement quality and also to play with the relationship between gestures and their significance.

This Movement Course can be added on to some Training Terms, so you will train twice a week.

Please note dates and times may vary each term.
