Meisner Acting Classes
About the Meisner Technique:
The Meisner Technique emphasizes the importance of truthful acting on the stage and screen. Sanford Meisner, who became well known for his long list of famous acting students, created a foundational exercise for actors called "repetition". Meisner described it as, "an exercise for actors where there is no intellectuality. I wanted to eliminate all the 'head' work, and take away the manipulation and get to where the source of all organic creativity comes from, your impulses."

About the Instructor:
Grant McGowen is the Producing Artistic Director and a founding member of Pinch n' Ouch Theatre. He has Produced, Directed, Written and Performed in over a dozen professional productions in Atlanta and New York City. Grant is a graduate of the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts where he studied Screen Acting and the Meisner Technique. He is also an accomplished Casting Director and has cast plays, films, and nationally televised commercials. He was most recently featured in Atlantan Magazine's "Top 20 Most Important People, Places, and Things to Watch on Atlanta's Arts Scene."
