GREENWOOD ACTING STUDIO IS DEVOTED TO THE AUTHENTIC EXPRESSION OF THE ARTIST
GREENWOOD ACTING STUDIO IS NO LONGER OPERATING IN SEATTLE
THERE ARE TWO TEACHING ARTISTS THAT I RECOMMEND IN SEATTLE:
MEISNER BASED WORK
I highly recommend Christa Thielen for Meisner based work. Christa trained in Meisner technique for several years, and has been instrumental in my own teaching and learning. I trust her completely. She is also trained in Organic Intelligence, a healing modality that aims to synchronize and harmonize the channels of the biology to foster living with ease, clarity, and boundless joy. Her studio is called Discovering Your Voice and takes place in the Greenwood Neighborhood. She writes the following about her work:
“My ethos: My intention with this class is to create a space where truth, play, and safety can all come together in such a way that celebrates the unique soul and voice of each person. Beyond the masks, the conditioned politeness, and the need to perform or behave lies a treasure brimming with pulsing life force that is desperately calling out to be seen and heard. In this space, we will do just that. All will be welcomed, all will be celebrated, and we will all be blessed because of it.”
Don’t miss the opportunity to work with her. You can reach her at DYVSeattle@gmail.com
Aaron Blakely is a stellar actor based in LA and Seattle. I have worked with him professionally and can attest that he really knows what he’s doing. Any actor woudl benefit from working with him. He has a Text Analyses class and an Actor’s Craft class beginning in March. Admission is by audition or invitation. His studio is called AMB Actor’s Workshop. He writes the following about his work:
“Led by professional theatre, film, and television actor, Aaron Blakeley, AMB Actor’s Workshop empowers actors to develop their own unique process by providing tools that are both straight forward and practical. Based upon the teachings of Konstantin Stanislavsky, Jon Jory, Declan Donellan, and Uta Hagen, these tools can be applied to any and every script made for stage or screen.”
Acting is a craft, and Aaron knows it incredibly well. Email him at email@example.com
Meisner Technique Based Acting Classes in Seattle, WA
Greenwood Acting Studio is a place of profound transformation and growth. Facilitated by Kjerstine Rose Anderson, we are one of the only acting schools in Seattle to base our teachings in a deceptively simple set of exercises known as the Meisner Technique.
Act before you think. Your instincts are more honest than your thoughts.
- Sanford Meisner
We work together in an actor training technique pioneered by Sanford Meisner. The most basic practice is the “repetition technique.”
Repetition is used as a device for helping actors to abandon the idea that acting is simply talking and to begin to fully be in the moment:
- Get out of your head.
- Trust your instincts & spontaneity.
- Accept & express your full range of emotions.
