Who we are
We are a UK based actor training company and community that reaches every part of you, as an actor and a human.
We use exercises based upon Meisner’s teachings to unlock your potential as an actor, but our classes are about much more than just learning the exercises.
Our training provides you with practical tools that you can translate to any acting job and you'll find that the technique lies comfortably with most other training you might have done - and will almost certainly enhance it.
We don’t believe in ‘breaking you down’. Of course we will challenge you to be the best actor you can be, but in a safe, supportive environment where you can play, take risks and learn to trust yourself.
Designed to help build humans, not just characters.
Our actor training retreats are the only training of its kind in the world.
How it began...
Originally co-founded in 2016 Stephanie Morgan, Adam Stadius and Laura Lindsay created Both Feet to give people a new way of learning. They met several years prior whilst training with Scott Williams (The Impulse Company) where their shared passion for the Meisner technique united them.
The company has grown and evolved over time developing into the multi-pronged Meisner based regional training courses, stretch classes, actor training retreats, small groups, 1:1's and much, much more.
Both Feet is now lead by Steph who has been joined by Rae Bell, a rather excellent actor, writer and producer.
Where we're going?
We have one small dream:
To be known as one of the best actor training providers in the world.
We are ever evolving, reflecting and evaluating. So who knows what the iminent future holds but we will continue to do what we can to make our training accessible to as many as possible, to honour those in our community and continue to raise awareness in the industry of how important you are as actors.

Connection & Community
Both Feet is a community, a family who opens and embraces, who cares.
We are a community of humans who are able to care for ourselves (really important) whilst also being able to care for each other.
A community where ego isn't harmful.
And where love overpowers envy.
We would rather not train than
compromise on the quality of training.
We are incredibly proud of our courses.
We keep class sizes small and are partnered with world class industry experts to bring actors tailored, heart felt, essential continued training.
