Acting Studio in Illinois

Kathryn and Rick With a background for many years heading a University MFA & BFA professional acting degree program and a professional conservatory program in New York City, we place great value in thorough, in-depth training. We recognize, however, that such a program is costly, and it can take several years to complete. To address this issue, members of the industry requested that we create a new approach. It offers the same comprehensive training, but it is accelerated, and it permits actors to pursue a career while developing their talent at our Acting Studio in Illinois.

To see the success of our students, visit the alumni page. Our Acting School in Chicago, Illinois has taught stars in every area of the industry. After the program, they do not remain students. They go from the classroom to the stage and screen.

A NEW WAY TO TRAIN ACTORS

LEVEL 1
May 17-June 2

Our training is divided into 4 levels. During our spring session, Levels 1 and 3 are available. In Level 1, you will come to study with us for just over 2 weeks, where you’ll immerse yourself in your art. In the first section of the Meisner technique, you’ll develop trust in your own deep, connected impulses. In voice classes you will work to build a free, expansive and expressive voice. Your movement classes will open you up and help you access deep, physically embodied work.

You’ll leave Level 1 with a new lease on the art that you love, creatively energized and ready for your auditions and performances. You’ll work hard, and it will be worth it.

LEVEL 3
May 17-June 3

Level 3 is one of the most exciting experiences in our training. Along with Advanced Scene Study (from all periods), and advanced Voice/Diction and Movement classes, you will delve into the delightful, deep, sublime work of Character Study and Period Style. Level 3 walks you through the essential skills of research, analysis, and self-direction. These advanced skills are vital to your continuing progress as an actor, for your auditions, and for crafting the lives of the characters you live before your audiences.

You’ll leave Level 3 able to take your characters from page to stage or screen in a variety of contexts and situations. You will possess a complete, individualized actor’s process.
