For very nearly 50 years, I have based my entire Life, Craft and Career on the teachings of this man (see left). He was my mentor, my teacher and, I dare say, my friend. His teachings were a beacon to me that showed the way to an extraordinary career and a truly amazing life.
We have seen his life's work come to dominate the landscape of professional 'actors' training the world over. No one has been more instrumental in the coaching of 'award- winning' talent than, Sanford "Sandy" Meisner.
More Oscars, Golden Globes, Emmys, Tonys, Drama Desks, People's Choices, , BAFTAS, et al have been won by 'Meisner Method' actors than ANY others. Major elements of his 'technique' are taught in virtually EVERY acting school, college, university and conservatory throughout the world.
His 'method' has NEVER failed me. Moreover, it has provided tens of thousands of actors, writers, directors and producers the finest tools with which to craft lifelong success in the most exciting and powerful industry on the planet. To me, it has truly been a gift that has kept giving.
It is our honor and privilege to carry on this tradition through our 'Acting Anyone' classes and other training at the Academy of Film, Television, Stage and the Performing Arts (AFTSPA.org), a 501(c)3 corporation, now entering our 5th year of operation, right here, only an hour from Broadway in the Hudson Valley of New York.
We invite Any and All interested in pursuing a career in the Performing Arts to visit and start your own "extraordinary" and 'affordable' journey here with us. Classes are forming now for new sessions. Please, feel free to call and schedule an appointment to see if the Academy is a good fit for you. At that time, we will also schedule you for a FREE ONE HOUR SESSION.
You can find us at: www.aftspa.org or call us at 845-294-7500. We look forward to meeting with you. Happy New Year!
