"Remember that in close-ups “less is more”. The camera is a lie detector that exposes every false move you make. You can’t fake real emotion. Close-ups require stillness. As director Don Siegel said, “You can do as little as you like as long as you are emotionally full.” ~ Alan Gordon

Alan Gordon Classes are intensive and hands on. His approach allows him to guide students through all stages of the technique. A major goal of The Meisner Technique is to get each student working truthfully and instinctively from themselves to replace thinking with doing. Maintaining small groups allows students to work several times during each class in a supportive and conducive learning environment. I offer 1 free audit to the class of your choice. Contact Alan Gordon Studio through the contact page.

 Tuesday evening from 7:00 pm to 10:30pm

On-going classes, students may start at any time

The Meisner Technique was created by Sanford Meisner to develop the actor's instincts by removing the thought process from the work. The 1st stage begins with the "first thing" repetition exercise. At this stage the students learn to place all their attention on one another and repeat verbatim what they hear. They add nothing to the exercise. No line readings, emoting or forced responses. By staying in the repetition students connect with Meisner's first rule: don't do anything until something happens to make you do it.

In scene study class Alan focuses on a detailed breakdown of the script into its essential elements. Starting with a table read, after which Alan will provide students with notes and send them home to work on their own. Information is exchanged and students work out a rehearsal schedule during the week. If you cannot meet with your scene partner, re-schedule. If your scene partner cannot make class bring a back-up scene (with copies). Make the best use of your time. Don’t avoid class because your scene partner is unable to attend. We also work on audition technique, and improving cold reading skills in every class. Students are welcome to bring audition material to class to work on.
