3 levels: Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced
 
Beginners:
Building a foundation; not just technically but emotionally and spiritually as well. The unique foundation exercises in the Meisner technique carefully build the world around you without damaging what’s unique about you. 
 
Intermediate:
Now the solid foundation has been built we focus on a deeper connection with the imaginary world. We explore the text using your own fantasies and desires to bring an inner life to the text that is truly your own. 
 
Advanced:
We focus on the story and the characters that live within those walls. It is our job as actors to honour the writing.  Sanford Meisner referred to this as building the banks of the river and the inner life of the character is the water. Leading up to advanced, as actors we deal with the water, its turbulence and quantity and now in advanced we build the banks and live within it.
