Einstein said it: Everything is constantly evolving. So why are we still teaching acting classes as if nothing has changed in the last 70 years? At Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshop in Santa Fe, the long-held illusions that continue to keep actors in the dark about their creative process are being shattered. IT’S REVOLUTIONARY. It’s what you always knew Santa Fe acting classes could be: FUN, EASY, EMPOWERING.
NO substitutions, sense memory, becoming an animal (“I think I’m a dog. No, I think I’m a snake!”). NO repetition exercises or 8 hours of scene rehearsals with your partner who’d rather be at the beach. NO memorization (“Learn those lines, dammit!”), drilling objectives or imbuing objects with personal meaning (“This coffee cup reminds me of rainbows.”). It’s just you being your great self. Refreshing, huh? So how does it work? Come watch us work. It’s free and fun!
This 6-week Santa Fe acting class meets twice a week: one working class and one lecture/observation class. The course introduces actors to the fundamentals of the AMAW philosophy and our way of working. A major shift takes place during this period – faster and more tangible than any other acting program.
After graduating from the Foundations Course, actors are evaluated by their instructor and placed in one of three Phase Levels for ongoing, month-to-month instruction. At every level you will be challenged to explore story more deeply and discover more of who you are as an actor, creator, and human being.Learn MOre
Actors have mastered the fundamentals of the AMAW philosophy; they are producing professional level work in an environment which is provocative, instinctual, community-oriented and “ego-free”.
Come and observe an acting class and see how we do it! There is no fee to attend.
You are great simply by being you!
It’s not the line that comes next, it’s the moment. Simply going to acting classes doesn’t necessarily make you great. You become great at something by doing it. The training that you get at AMAW Sydney Acting School will give you a new understanding of what it means to be truthful in your work and how to generate moment-to-moment experiences. Santa Fe acting classes will make you confident in ways that not only change you as an actor – but as a person. Our drama school will want to make you kiss the Tall Poppy Syndrome goodbye and realize that there is no place for you playing small. At Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshop you will have the opportunity to learn skills, gain confidence and pursue the dreams you were too scared to admit you had!
