Training

Black Box Acting is a school dedicated to training actors how to Work Hard and Be Fearless.

Our three training programs are:

  • The ACADEMY: Five-month intensive conservatory training
  • The STUDIO: Part-time classes and workshops offered year round.
  • National Intensives: Bootcamp-style Black Box training in cities across the country

All three programs teach The Black Box Method. This comprehensive and rigorous curriculum, based in Meisner and Viewpoints, trains actors to:

  • Be in the moment and feel alive onstage
  • Celebrate flaws and gifts equally
  • Live fully under imagined circumstances
  • Own text with honesty and integrity
  • Follow physical impulses
  • Work from an honest, brave, and present place… consistently
