THE ATLANTIC ACTING SCHOOL
Founded by David Mamet and William H. Macy, the Atlantic has the only conservatory program in the world that offers in-depth training in Mamet and Macy’s unique and influential approach to acting: Practical Aesthetics, the Atlantic Technique. The school’s mission is to ensure that each graduate masters the essential analytical and physical disciplines of acting and to empower every student with skills necessary for success in the profession.
THE SUMMER INTENSIVE
Offering comprehensive training, this rigorous six-week intensive immerses students in an accelerated curriculum which mirrors that of the first semester conservatory instruction. This ambitious and rewarding intensive serves the actor seeking familiarization with the Atlantic Technique, Practical Aesthetics, and introduction to the development of skills required of a responsive physical instrument. Inherent in the culture of the school, and ubiquitous in the curriculum, is training in the professional habits and discipline demanded by the collaborative nature of this creative work. Classes take place Mondays through Fridays 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM along with a half day on Saturday.
