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 School in Vancouver, 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 Vancouver acting school could be: FUN, EASY, EMPOWERING.
If you want to get started on your acting career in Vancouver, submit a contact form so we can get you started with our program.
The first step to starting your journey with AMAW Studios is to take our Foundations Course, which is not an introduction to acting, but an introduction to how we work at the AMAW studio. Once you complete the course, you are eligible to continue with On-Going and Mastery Scene Study Acting Classes. We also offer Elective Classes in many locations that do not require the Foundations Course as a prerequisite.
Learn from the best of the best acting coaches and teachers. At AMAW Vancouver, our acting teachers are devoted to elevating actor training and developing an array of acting classes. Take classes given by Frank Zotter, Justine Warrington and Alethea Sholomenko.

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 Vancouver 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.
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”.
You are great simply by being you!
Did you ever want to take an acting class in Vancouver but wasn’t sure where to begin? Did you ever wonder how people create “characters” and yet it seems impossible for you to even tie your shoes? Did you even think about the possibility of finding an acting school right here in Vancouver? Are you thinking about taking acting classes in Vancouver but you’re too afraid of failure? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it might be time to radically change your approach to acting and your life.
Anthony Meindl’s Vancouver Acting School and acting classes are a great place to start. At AMAW acting classes in Vancouver you will learn that you have talent. You’ll learn that even though being alive is mysterious, acting isn’t nearly as esoteric as it’s sometimes been taught. You’ll learn how to let go, surrender, become free, and not give a sh*t about what others think. With the best acting coaches in Vancouver and a lot more confidence, you’ll take more risks in your life, create bold choices and even ask people out more often (If you’re single!). Even if you get rejected, you’ll start participating more actively in your life rather than sitting on the sidelines watching other people live theirs.
