2024 Four Week
Summer Conservatory Intensive

July 8 – August 2, 2024


The Actors Conservatory Summer Intensive is a four-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: Joellen Sweeney)
  • Meisner (Instructor: Chris Harder)
  • Improvisation (Instructor: Theresa Robbins Dudeck)
  • Shakespeare (Instructor: Gavin Hoffman)
  • Viewpoints (Instructor: Chris Harder)
  • Breath & Energy (Instructor: Sarah Lucht)
  • Text Analysis with Scene Study (Instructor: Sarah Lucht)
