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.

No Deal: Auto workers strike against GM in contract dispute

Sep 16, 2019

DETROIT — More than 49,000 members of the United Auto Workers walked off General Motors factory floors or set up picket lines early Monday as contract talks with the company deteriorated into a strike. Workers shut down 33 manufacturing plants in nine states across the U.S., as well as 22 parts distribution warehouses. It wasn't clear how long the walkout would last, with the union saying GM has budged little in months of talks while GM said it made substantial offers including higher wages and factory investments. It's the first national strike by the union since a two-day walkout in...

Union votes to strike at General Motors' US plants

Sep 16, 2019

DETROIT — The United Auto Workers union announced Sunday that its roughly 49,000 workers at General Motors plants in the U.S. would go on strike just before midnight because contentious talks on a new contract had broken down. About 200 plant-level union leaders voted unanimously in favor of a walkout during a meeting Sunday morning in Detroit. Union leaders said the sides were still far apart on several major issues and they apparently weren't swayed by a GM offer to make new products at or near two of the four plants it had been planning to close, according to someone...

US stocks are mixed as health care gains, tech drops

Sep 16, 2019

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks gave a mixed performance in early trading on Friday as health care, banks and industrial companies gained ground and offset a decline in technology stocks. Still, stocks are on track for their third straight weekly gain, having been bolstered in prior sessions by an easing of tensions in the U.S.-China trade war. Bond yields rose sharply after the government reported that Americans kept spending money in August, particularly on cars. The yield on the 10-year Treasury rose to 1.83% from 1.79% late Thursday. That helped lift bank stocks, which rely on higher yields to set...

EU competition chief hints at new data rules for tech firms

Sep 16, 2019

LONDON — The European Union's powerful competition chief indicated Friday that she's looking at expanding regulations on personal data, dropping an initial hint about how she plans to use new powers against tech companies. Margrethe Vestager said that while Europeans have control over their own data through the EU's world-leading data privacy rules, they don't address problems stemming from the way companies use other people's data, "to draw conclusions about me or to undermine democracy." "So we may also need broader rules to make sure that the way companies collect and use data doesn't harm the fundamental values of our...

Pesticide criticized in bee deaths could also kill birds

Sep 16, 2019

PORTLAND, Maine — Scientists studying a widely used pesticide say even small doses of the chemical can have crippling health effects on migrating birds, and it might be contributing to declines in their overall populations. The researchers with the University of Saskatchewan will publish their research about the insect-killer imidacloprid in the journal Science on Friday. The insecticide is among a class called neonicotinoids that has been widely studied for its health impacts on bees. The scientists studied white-crowned sparrows that consumed small doses of the pesticide and found that the birds experienced weight loss and delays in migration. They...
