Using the technique acting coach Ashlie Walker and the students were able to create exceptional atmosphere of trust and connection to both their co-actor and the character they were portraying.” - Selma

What is the famous Meisner Technique? Come and find out and shift your experience in acting for good. Time to tap into your authentic expression and impulses.

Voice & Movement

These workshops are specifically designed to guide actors to their natural voice and emotional authenticity, away from habitual tension and patterns.

Cold Reading

An actor's skill is to be able to live truthfully in the moment yet still take any scene off the page and make it alive. A playful and exciting actor's workout technique.

Screen Acting

Screen Acting, Self-taping and Audition technique. The important skills and experience any actor needs to master and regularly keep up to date.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

It was transformational! I think the best thing about the course and about the way Ashlie taught Meisner was the simplicity and effectiveness of focusing on one another’s feelings. While I’ve always had a part of me thinking whether I should provoke or not, act or not, do or not, be one way or another, or otherwise analysing the right way of doing the repetition, with Ashlie I was able to settle down into my acting partner’s feelings as well as my own. It was powerful to just see the other person and let them affect me, to see how they affect me. In the end it all made me learn heaps about not only acting but myself as well. It’s come up in most acting related situations that “why go to therapy when you can go to acting class”, but Ashlie’s course took it to a new level. Hands down, I would give the workshop a 10/10.
