I came to The Acting Corps thinking I knew what I was doing. I attended a well know University that has a good acting program. While I have a degree in Theater Arts, I did not know the first thing about acting. Well, I knew the first thing, but what I did not know could fill several books. And I have now read many of those books.
I came to The Acting Corps for one reason, it was five days a week. I was lazy in my research and that is the only reason I picked them. As it turned out, it was my lucky day. I went through every program they have there, and I love them. I love Michael Chekhov, I love Meisner. I cannot recommend them enough. Changed my acting, and changed my life.
The Acting Corps rocks hard corps. Meisner is da $hit! The boot camp program is da bomb!
Meisner is really interesting. It's not going to be the only technique I use, and it shouldn't be. I like that The Acting Corps did not ONLY teach this method, but dabbled in other tools too, and there was scene study and cold reading so I could apply all the tools I learned.
One thing I discovered: most guys, if they are in the moment, listening to their impulses, will want to kiss an attractive girl... but that doesn't mean I have to let them, unless I have to impulse to kiss them back. ;) Either way, makes for interesting interaction. Great school.
The teachers at the Acting Corps are splendid chaps, all of them. They care. They teach. You learn.
Nice place to learn and make friends who are as dedicated to the craft as you all. It takes a dedicated person to go to class five days a week, plus outside class rehearsals. I really felt like I found my place in Los Angeles when I found The Acting Corps.
The Acting Corps has wonderful teachers. They have been to the mountain top, learned the secrets of performance, and are there to teach it to you. The ten commandments of acting so to speak. My words, not theirs. "Let my people learn!"
My friend Carmine said this would be a great place for me to study, and he was right. I had a great time at The Acting Corps. Thank you Carmine, and that you Acting Corps staff. Rock on!
I've been hustling for acting work in Hollywood a long time now, almost 8 years, and The Acting Corps is the first school I've come across where not only do I respect the opinions of the teachers, but all the students/actors is encouraged to perform without fear of making mistakes. Leave your ego at the door. Just simple positive teaching. I am still a student there as I write this, I think this is a place I will stick with for awhile.
Great place to study and grow into a better actor. Great teachers.
The Acting Corps is the BEST! They have the most supportive environment an actor could ask for. The staff is fantastic, and they make you feel so cared for. The technique is Meisner, and it's not like any other technique I had taken before. This school allows you to exercise your technique, learn, share, and to be part of a group.
