Weekend Intensive Workshops are a two day immersion in an atmosphere focused on artistic creativity and development. Our weekend workshops train actors, theatre teachers and directors in the method of the Chekhov Technique. Participants work in an active, very focused way.

“You have to teach yourself to act but Michael Chekhov will give you the necessary tools - and for me, Psychological Gesture and Centers are extremely valuable They work like a charm. I've used them all along and still do.” - Clint Eastwood

This Weekend Workshop is a good way to begin your study of the Chekhov Technique as we explore essential concepts covered in Michael Chekhov’s book, To The Actor. Most students find that studying in our workshops make this book very accessible.

In this Intensive we will prepare your 'actor's body' and work with the gem of the technique; the 'Psychological Gesture'. This is the dynamic secret that ignites the inner life of your scenes. Find out how to use this technique for Theatre or Film. This workshop also includes an overview of other essentials of the technique that bring out your vital energies and imaginative characters. We will look at how these tools that work so well for developing characters can give you a more confident presence for auditions and interviews. If you decide to continue training in the Chekhov Technique, this workshop will be a solid foundation for further study.

Our workshops are taught by Dawn Arnold, Michael Chekhov Association (MICHA) Master Teacher, assisted by members of our Studio who also are studying with MICHA.

Workshop fee: $125/ $90 for Studio Members*
