The Six-Week Summer Intensive is designed to introduce actors to the methods of training employed by the studio. For those students who continue into the Fall and Winter it provides a strong send-off into the Two Year Program.
The Summer Intensive begins June 16th and all classes will end by August 1st.
***4th of July – The studio will be closed Monday, July 3rd and Tuesday, July 4th in observance of the Independence Day holiday.***
Interviews for the 2017 summer intensive will begin in January 2017. There is no deadline, however once classes are full we will continue to hold interviews for a wait list. The earlier you interview the more likely there will be availability for a spot in a class, if accepted.
We do offer visas for international students enrolled in the full time program.
Acting classes in the Intensive meet 3 times a week for 3-3 1/2 hours. Supplementary classes are also offered in Improvisation, Voice and Speech, Movement, Alexander, Mask, Acting On-Camera, and Neutral American Speech (for international students). These additional class offerings allow a student to create a full- or part-time conservatory program that fits their schedules.
The program requires a full commitment from students. Students are not allowed to miss classes and must also commit to rehearsals between classes.
There are classes that meet in the morning, afternoon and evening to accommodate work conflicts or other obligations the student might have.
Acting classes meet on Mon/Wed/Fri. There are classes that meet in the morning 10am-1pm, the afternoon 2-5pm and in the evening 6:45-9:45pm. There will also be one section that meets on Tue/Thurs/Sat, 10am-1pm.
Once accepted, we will place you in an acting class that meets your schedule. There are several options of study:
Part-time: Acting class only which meets 3 times a week for 3-3 1/2 hours each class.
Core: Acting class, Movement and Voice & Speech for a total of 16 hours.
Full-time: Acting class, Movement, Voice & Speech, Mask, Alexander, Intro to Improvisation. (25 hours per week)
You may also choose to sign up individually for any of the supplemental classes in addition to your acting class, however, placement priority is given to core and full time students.
