ABOUT THE METHOD method acting class

STANISLAVSKI SYSTEM, founded by the great Russian director, actor, philosopher Constantin Stanislavski is the very first approach to 'Method Acting' that developed in the first half of the 20th century at the Moscow Arts Theatre,  and later adopted by several Western practitioners including Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner, who incorporated it in their own training, thus creating the different methods in America, that have been helping actors everyday.


Actor, Entrepreneur and NBA icon Rick Fox (He's Got Game, Greenleaf) had to get in and out of character for his role in the Next Actor Studio feature A Curry on an American Plate. While on set in Houston, Fox spoke about his dependence on Stanislavski to constantly switch between the heavy and lighter version of the same role on the same day.


"The language of the body is the key that can unlock the soul." - Stanislavski

Stanislavski Method Acting Classes at our studio are designed to coordinate the System with on-camera technique, to help students find their strengths, eliminate their habits and perform as in life. Advanced Students must strive to achieve psycho-physical union while in character as they work with Intensive scenes and monologues, and build and live in characters with nuances and colors.

Through exercises, improvisations, emotional memory, and the Method of Physical Action, the System aims to transform the student into the character and live the role.

We are the only studio in Texas where one can learn the truest, most authentic form of Stanislavski Method, including the original System that developed in the Moscow Arts Theatre of Russia, and the revised Method of Physical Action that was formed when Mr. Stanislavski was living in Paris.

Method Acting students often collaborate with our filmmaking students to make shorts and apply their learning to experience the true form of the technique, as they build characters and live in them. Sincere students are frequently cast in our feature productions, and continue to enjoy the craft.
