Intro to Meisner

1 Day (occasionally 2 Days)

Leeds Playhouse Both Feet Meisner

What you'll learn

During this one day you’ll be introduced to Steph, a new way of looking at you and your craft and what it means to be an actor as well as The Meisner Technique, including the famous ‘repetition’ exercise.

You’ll begin exploring connection and your acting instincts, learn to observe and respond and take the first steps towards what Meisner calls ‘living truthfully’. 

If we find we're a good fit and our training is right for you, you will then be invited to apply to continue your training.

Where & How much?

We run these Intro to Meisner courses in London, Leeds and Manchester.

We make sure our courses as affordable as possible to do our part in reducing income inequality accessibility in the industry. As such, the prices do vary dependant on location. 

Standard price is:

£49 / £59

Who coaches you?

Steph is a practitioner with nearly 20 years experience in the performing arts. Since 2005, she has worked in theatres across the country as a performer, Venue Technician, Stage Manager, Assistant Director and Director. Most recently, she taught Acting to Undergraduates and Masters’ students at ALRA Drama School and ICTheatre & has been a guest practitioner and lecturer at Leeds Conservatoire.  

 

Steph is a INLPTA certified Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner, an mBIT (multiple Brain Integration Techniques) Master Coach and a HeartMath coach - training which she integrates into her teaching practice to fuel her passion for creating healthy and happy actors.​ She also coaches groups and individuals towards the Healthy, Happier Self.

Steph trained in the Meisner Technique under Scott Williams (The Impulse Company) and Keith Farquhar (Moment to Moment) and has been teaching her version for several years. Prior to Both Feet, Steph was the Managing Director of West Yorkshire Theatre Network (2009-2016), which offered performance and networking opportunities, rehearsal space and training courses from internationally renowned artists for thousands of actors across the world. 

She also is the founder and creator of Bodlondeb Retreat in North Wales, where our Both Feet Retreats take place. 

 

Stay another day?

Most of our Intro days are followed by a Stretch Day. They generally sell out but if there happen to be a place, we strongly recommend you stay on to delve deeper into the work. It's also a beautiful opportunity to work with actors Steph's been training for a long time. 

Stage to Screen Sunrise Actor Training

Thank you for the intro and the stretch. I think it's wonderful that you've curated a space for actors that is safe, nurturing and so so kind above everything else.

 

It was a pleasure to watch you work and meet more people who have been touched and changed by the method and approach.

 

I found things in 2 days that a year in Drama school couldn't teach.

"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."
