Summer Acting Programs Available For Actors In NYC

June 18, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - The New York City based Maggie Flanigan Studio is pleased to invite actors of all kinds to take part in their summer acting programs in NYC. The renowned academy is known for hosting programs that help actors reach deep within themselves to bring true character to their performances. The summer intensive in particular is based on the training developed by Sanford Meisner to teach professional actors.

Stephanie Leva was a student of the academy's summer acting program who decided to continue on to the two-year acting program that is also available for those who complete the summer intensive. During the interview, she affirmed, "My first year at the Maggie Flanigan Studio has been life-changing. I was looking for some training so I could have the best tools in my toolbox as an artist. I went to a few other studios and MFA tours, but the second I had my tour and interview with Charlie Sandlan, I knew this was the place for me."

She explained that there were many specific aspects that led her to choose the Maggie Flanigan Studio over others in the area, but the versatility of the classes was ultimately the deciding factor for her, as the studio offers a personalized experienced that can be adjusted according to a student's needs. The Summer program offers a number of mandatory classes, which teach students the basics of acting under the Meisner technique. These are complemented with auxiliary content, freely chosen by the attendants according to their needs and preferences, allowing them to work on their weaknesses or develop their strengths. This makes it so that students can form their own schedule and attend the program for 15-26 hours a week, depending on their class load.

The Maggie Flanigan Studio explains that, due to the fact that most of the program's attendants are currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree, the program seeks to help them understand the importance of hard work in this form of art. This gives them a new understanding of the important fundamentals that any serious actor should possess. The pace of the program, as well as the topics covered, encourages the student's growth, preparing them as best as possible to pursue a career in the acting industry.

Leva said, "The versatile classes they offer have amazing, professional teachers. Everyone in the studio wants the best for you and they expect the best every time. Everyone is required to bring their full, free self to every class."

She also explained that, while the program's atmosphere was always an encouraging one, constructive criticism was always present. "Charlie and the other teachers do not sugar coat anything; they will tell you the truth no matter what it is, and I 100% loved that! I am not here to be babied or receive false praise, I am here to work on my craft and become the best artist I can be,” said the student.

According to the acting academy’s alumni, this is what makes Maggie Flanigan Studio's program one of the best summer acting intensives New York has available. Leva believes this critique and advice is invaluable for all students, as it presents them with many growth opportunities under the tutelage of experienced actors that know the industry first-hand. She said, "This studio is what makes you professional! This studio is what sets you above the bar. If I have grown this much in the first year, I cannot wait for the second year to start."

The academy states that their mission is to give students a new appreciation for the timeless craft of acting, while teaching them a significantly clearer process on how to write and shape their own work. This can be a useful resource to help both those who are struggling to decide on a career path and those who are already pursuing a BA degree.

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jan 25, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Jan 25, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Jan 25, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
