The Acting Intensive

The Gately/Poole Acting Intensives are the foundation of the Gately/Poole training program. They are designed for actors who would prefer an accelerated, concentrated style training program to conventional, long-term programs.

Weekend Workshop

You’ll jump into the Gately/Poole Training, with acting technique and text work, an on-camera workshop and classes in voice, speech, and movement. You’ll also get an Individualized Artist’s Evaluation with our Faculty.





At The Gately/Poole Acting Studio, we offer a new way to train. We work with a foundation in the Meisner Progression technique. We have proven the success of their methods for several decades, training versatile, award-winning actors to find success in the competitive entertainment industry.

Take the next step toward achieving your dream.
