Green Shirt Studio
Last June I underwent a month-long training intensive (read 6/7 days a week, 10 hour days) at the True Acting Institute, improving my understanding of the Meisner Technique and learning how to teach it to others. Training with master teacher Larry Silverberg was extremely affirmative of my work as an actor, and of my skill to share what I know.
This summer, I started classes as an instructor of a Level Three Meisner class at Green Shirt Studio. Over 10 weeks, I led students through the deeply personal, trying work of emotional preparation. It was rewarding to put this teaching certificate to good use, and I am very thankful to Andrew Gallant and Sommer Austin for welcoming me into the studio as a student, observer, and teacher! If you don't know much about Green Shirt, come check it out. There are FREE classes on Fridays and a variety of affordable classes of many subjects.
