The Actors Intensive


Kirk Baltz, Acting Coach

Joletta Hardman, Administration

Class Details

6–16 students per class. Private coaching and career consultation by appointment. International workshops. All levels. Scene study runs monthly.


Using both Method and Meisner based techniques, actors learn to make clear and specific choices rooted in what he/she is “doing.” Actors learn what it means to be an artist and create work that is alive and rooted in the truth of each individual actor. Key topics include: How an actor gains awareness of physical tension and releases this tension; finding the “set givens” so a character’s truth can be revealed; creating change within one’s self rather then changing the character; what is the character’s “need”? How is this “need” attained? New actors accepted after interview assessment.

Classes are held Wednesdays 7–10pm and include scene study, monologues, exercises to develop craft technique, and audition technique. $250 per month. Ample parking. See testimonials on website
