Summer Conservatory Intensive

The Actors Conservatory Summer Intensive is a five-week program that explores the same core foundation of Conservatory style training that you would find in our Two-Year Certificate Professional Actor Training Program. Students will be mentored by master teachers who are also professional artists. Our mission is to provide comprehensive and rigorous actor training by engaging the mind, heart and spirit of the artist. 

Whether you are curious about acting, an emerging artist, college-bound, a professional actor, or an educator interested in innovation and inspiration in the classroom, the Summer Conservatory Intensive offers foundational training, straight-forward technique, and individualized instruction. 

Course work includes:

  • Acting Technique (Instructor: Andrea White)
  • Meisner (Instructor: Chris Harder)
  • Improvisation Workshop (Instructor: Theresa Robbins Dudeck)
  • Shakespeare (Instructor: Gavin Hoffman)
  • Viewpoints (Instructor: Chris Harder)
  • Breath & Energy (Instructor: Sarah Lucht)
  • Scene Study with Text Analysis (Instructor: Sarah Lucht)
