Meisner beginners course

December 3, 2011 in Uncategorized by the salon:collective


Have you ever found it hard to be truthful on stage?

Do you feel self-conscious on stage, or on camera?

Do you need a reliable acting system to follow?

This course of five sessions (meeting once a week) will work intensively on the first stages of the Meisner Technique.

Focusing on the repetition exercise, expert Meisner teacher, Dominic Kelly, will get you to:

  • respond truthfully in the moment
  • take your attention off yourself
  • free your instincts
  • give you renewed faith in yourself as an actor

Class numbers are small (max 6 people per session) to give you the time you deserve & ensure you make the most of the course.

Sessions do not have to be taken consecutively! If you miss a week that’s ok, you can carry on the week after – provided the module is completed within two months of your first session.


“Dominic Kelly’s classes capture the same unique spirit and essence I received whilst studying at the Neighbourhood Playhouse, the birthplace and home of the Meisner technique.”  - NEIL ALLEN, actor


Who could benefit from this course?

  • Actors who feel out of practice & want to brush up their skills
  • Anyone seeking a systematic approach to acting
  • Actors looking to unlock their emotional potential & conquer self-consciousness

What do you get?

(Besides an approach to unlocking emotional potential…)

  • Practice at working moment to moment with another actor
  • Focused feedback and individual attention
  • supportive environment to explore personal challenges
  • A small intimate group of co-students
