At the heart of all Both Feet's actor training is the world renowned Meisner Technique. We believe every actor (no matter what stage of their career) should learn the principles of this incredible technique, whether you've been in the industry for years or are just finding your way.
In our foundation training we'll introduce you to Sanford Meisner's famous exercises (and some of our own) which will guide you out of your head so you can be the present and responsive actor you know you can be and directors want to cast.
There are two options to starting this training:
Intro to Meisner (2 days)
£95 / £85 early bird
During these days you’ll be introduced to The Meisner Technique, including the famous ‘repetition’ exercise.
You’ll begin exploring your acting instincts, learn to observe and respond and take the first stepst owards what Meisner calls ‘living truthfully’.
If we find we're a good fit and our training is right for you, you will then be eligible to apply for our Core Intensive course.
The Core (6 Days)

The Core introduces our actors to the full repertoire of Meisner’s fundamental exercises, truly allowing students to begin ‘living truthfully under imaginary circumstances’.
Over 6 intensive days, we work our way to text by introducing exercises that will fundamentally change your approach to your work, build a solid foundation of skills that are flexible enough to be applied to any challenge you face.
