A NOTE ABOUT OUR CLASSES
We know during these uncertain times, you may have many questions about how acting training can be conducted. We have made adjustments to our training process to accommodate these times, and over the past several months, we have found very effective ways to teach our process in a live online environment.

NOTE: Starting with our May semester, we are planning to conduct “hybrid” classes. While our main classes will be conducted live via Zoom, we will also ask for volunteers to come into the studio on selected days to run the exercises in-person. During these times, we will also broadcast those classes via Zoom so everyone can be involved – regardless if you are in-studio or online!

Please go to our About Online Classes Page for more information about our current class format. If you have further questions, please Contact Us. We would be happy to discuss it all with you!

The following classes will be conducted online (live via Zoom), and if conditions allow, we may ask for local student volunteers to come into the studio on certain dates to help demonstrate specific tools and exercises.

CLASS FORMAT: Our classes are longer in format and semester based (similar to a university structure). They are held twice per week and are 3.5 hours per class (28 total classes – 98 total hours per semester). New classes begin every January, May, and September.

WHERE TO BEGIN: If you are new to Truthful Acting Studios, we recommend beginning with our Master Meisner Program.

Master Meisner Program

Based in the teachings of legendary acting instructor Sanford Meisner, this program works to train the actor to move their focus away from the self and put it on the world around them.

Note: The Master Meisner Program is a certificate earning program.

Experience Level: No prior experience needed!

This approach is for any artist, whether this is your very first acting class, or even if you’ve been in the industry for years. The great thing about this approach is that even though everyone begins the approach from the beginning, each artist is on their own path and you can work at your level.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

The Master Meisner Program is divided into two core semesters (Meisner I and Meisner II). You will receive a certificate of training upon the completion of both semesters.

Beyond this foundational program, students can continue to enhance their craft through our Conservatory Level classes. Students are encouraged to start at the beginning, regardless of past experience, since each class builds upon the previous one.

Through this intensive program of study, we intend to plant the seed that will become a vital part of your acting process, serving you in all your future acting work.

Come grow with us and experience your passion!

TA Conservatory Program

Experience Level: Completion of the Master Meisner Program strongly recommended.

These are continuing education classes on various aspects of acting. They are meant to be built upon a foundational process (such as the Master Meisner Program), but they can be taken al-a-carte as needed. Each class focuses on a specific area of study and addresses one of the essential Six Pillars of Acting.
