Acting for Non-Actors

A class for those who are coming into an acting class because they are:

  • Preparing for public speaking
  • Curious
  • Apprehensive about going into a regular class
  • Being dared to join
  • Checking things off their bucket list thing
  • Working with a schedule and the timing works
  • Happy to be with others who are just trying out an acting class for the first time

There will be a diverse set of reasons for people joining this group which creates an easy-going environment without pressure. However the content of the program is the same as our regular Foundations I program. The focus is on the principles of acting and working on the acting instrument.

$240 + GST
Participants are given a full refund if after the first class they feel it is not the right training for them.

The activities/exercises feel like a return to our more natural selves before being told how to be, what to say, how to say it. I am reminded to check in with myself for authentic expression of my experience in the moment. Thank you for your brilliance in presenting this opportunity.

Breaking down a few walls isn’t that difficult when the reward is feeling like a kid again, what an amazing release! I just signed up for my next program with Actorium … (which can’t start soon enough).

Actorium has taught me to slowly breath through my fears and instead use them to my benefit. In the past I’ve never been able to slow my thoughts down long enough to gain that control and understanding, so when I felt it in the moment and then saw this change happening, I was overwhelmed with emotion.

Not only has the program allowed me to tap into my childhood bliss that I chose to let go of, but it also helped me look at places I blocked out within myself. I am becoming more whole and my relationships are becoming more authentic and honest. I am finding the program is helping me stay present and be more honest with everyone in my daily interactions. Rather than my habit of keeping my thoughts to myself, I’m able to share those feelings with people I trust and they make room for me. I have richer relationships because I’m able to recognize what I’m feeling and sense what others are feeling.

I want to express my appreciation for the opportunity to join the Meisner Intro Class. The attention, understanding and encouragement you give is communicated with such compassion and depth that makes one want to incorporate and excel.

Even from the first workshop there has been a shift in my interaction with others and awareness of how and what I communicate. I learn something new with each class and the experience stays alive within me until the next class.
