Training at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute has been a transforming experience: mind, body, and soul. It is a comprehensive and challenging program, which has allowed me to learn the craft of Method Acting and cultivate that truth and honesty within myself. The Voice, Movement, and Dance classes have challenged me to explore my own voice and overall physicality, helping me get out of my own way physically and establish a realistic ease of motion with the goal of using my body and voice less to achieve more. Scene Study and Script Analysis have been instrumental in the examination of the full depth of characters, subtexts and objectives. I am now able to extract the dynamic and full essence of each character, which has drastically improved my ability to live truthfully on stage.
The instructors are fully committed to and passionate about their work and yours. The various teaching styles challenge you to think differently and never get stuck in one way of doing things. Expectations are high, but in the end the critical analysis of your work will enable you to develop and grow in ways you never expected. As with anything else: you get out what you put in. If you put in your full heart and soul, you cannot go wrong. Finally, the administration: Laura, Marian, and Jennifer are always open and responsive to questions and concerns. They are fully supportive and lend an ear and some great advice when needed. This is not just an acting school, it is a Family.
