An Actor Connects Retreats (in 3 parts)

"I learnt more about my craft on this retreat than I did
during 3 years at drama school."

Be the actor you want to be

Are you serious about expanding yourself, your craft and your career?​

Working professionally but seeking seeking an easier way?

Early career but committed to feeding 

that fire in your belly?

Stephanie Morgan smiling

"Hello, I am Steph and I am invested in helping you enjoy your job, every element of it so your self tapes, auditions, rehearsals and performances are fun. 

 

I want you to know how to go to the extraordinary and return, without getting lost or damaged on the way.

 

I want you to know your worth. To know how to show up with every part of you. 

 

The Foundations of my training uses neuroscience and The Meisner Technique.

I know some of you are struggling to commit to the longer immersive retreats so I’ve created this 3 part series for you. 

You will have to do them in order and some of them sit back to back in case you’re able to stay on."

Is it for you?

For actors with a fire in their bellies.

How the parts are split?

Part 1

Connection

 

During this first part we will explore you and how you show up in the world including the science behind it.

 

We’ll explore connection and what’s in your way of connecting. 

 

We’ll explore what helps you to connect. 

 

We’ll explore your impulses to move. 

 

We’ll play with preparation and how to easily change state. So you’re ready to work. 

Part 2

Given Circumstances

During this second part we'll delve further into The Meisner Technique and having identified what's in your way of connecting we'll work to remove those blocks.

We'll explore your given circumstances, what it is to go to the extraordinary and what stops you.

We'll look at character relationships, impulse, intuition.

Part 3

Text Work

This is where everything we've done so far is carried with us into working with text. Will will bring the connection, intuition, impulse and honesty into somebody else's words.

We'll explore how we deep dive into a reality beyond our own and return again with ease.

We'll explore a way of working with text that is fun, exciting and a complete game changer. 

Collectively

When the three separate parts are put together

it's the equivalent training time to our

An Actor Connects: Meisner Intensive Retreat.

Each retreat the training will take us deeper into learning who we are so we can be attuned and generous actors.

Bodlondeb Studio

We run all of our retreats from our custom built studio and accommodation at Bodlondeb Studio & Retreat, Corwen, North Wales.  

Nestled in the rolling hills of the Welsh countryside and sleeping up to 12 people, it is a space where you can hold yourself lightly enough to create, connect, share and explore.

Getting here is easier than you think too. You can drive or we can help with car sharing / collection from Chester if someone's not passing your route. And the T10 bus stops right outside our door!

"This lady is one of the most hard working,

badass people out there.

This course sounds amazing - any of my acting friends out there who haven't worked with Steph or who have any want to try something different, should definitely give this a go."

"I've been working with Both Feet Actor Training for about five years now.  They have not only changed me as an actor but my whole perspective of it too.  They are sooo amazing! If you are a working actor or just starting your journey I urge you to look at this."
