The Two Year Conservatory & Spring Intensive Programs Start Here.

Training the passionate actor committed to excellence.

Acting is going to be different for next 12-18 months. 

In order to support, embrace, and expand our community, we are committed to serving each and every student’s wellbeing, safety, and artistic growth.

We have thus decided to move the TK Studio Two Year Conservatory & Spring Intensive to the online platform. 

What are you doing to be ready? Preparing the actor for what may be next
The one thing we have now is TIME – don’t be on the sidelines. “Don’t waste a crisis.” 

Spark your desire to study authentic acting for adults (18 years of age and over) with our Spring Intensive in Meisner Technique, Movement, and Voice & Speech. This spring acting program will help actors of all levels grow and connect with the actor they have always longed to become. Over the course of six weeks, Spring Intensive acting students will begin to develop core acting skills rooted in the Meisner Technique, Sanford Meisner‘s traditional sequence of improvisational exercises and basic scene work.

Spring Intensive students begin by learning how to listen deeply, respond truthfully, and express authentic emotional life under rich imaginary circumstances.

“I first took an acting class from Terry Knickerbocker more than 25 years ago. Since then I have worked with him on every film and stage role I’ve done. Nobody’s better at what he does. Terry is incredibly intuitive and full of ideas that are usually outside the box. His sense of what is truthful is like a laser. I depend on him. He’s invaluable to me, and I don’t know what I’d do without him.”

Terry has been an invaluable part of my process for many years. He helps me shape my characters, prepares me for auditions, and challenges me to push myself as an actress. When I send him a new script, he has ideas on everything, from subverting obvious character choices to what physicality or props might help me express something non-verbally in a scene. He also shakes me of any quirks or bad habits I might develop.

“One of my favorite things about working with Terry is his vast knowledge of theater and film. Often when developing a character together, Terry will suggest studying a play with a similar character or watching an old film with a character whose quirks we might be inspired to pepper into what we are creating. Terry continues to impress me with his commitment to characterand story. I wouldn’t be as fearless or as confident without his guidance.”

Terry's training has defined how I approach my work. Through his insight and guidance we continue to engage in creative work that can stand on its own with full thought out and realized character. Being able to take care of yourself on set is one thing, and playing roles here and there is another; but to make a life out of acting is a passion that you’ll see breathing out of the work if Terry has been involved.”

“I’m so confident that I'm going to be ready for what comes next. ”

“The fact that I'm still able to grow and learn and be a part of what I consider the best studio in the country and that’s not blowing smoke, it really is. I've studied a lot at different places. This is the place to be if you really want to be a full fledged actor.”

“I feel so lucky that I get to work on my craft so that when things open up I’m ready. I’m so confident that I'm going to be ready for what comes next.”

“The very first time I walked into the studio I just felt this overwhelming sense of calm”

“You as a person is valued so much and that’s what TK Studio has always been for me.”

“The very first time I walked into the studio I just felt this overwhelming sense of calm and like I was going to be safe here. Even outside of the physical space that still remains, even through our Zoom lens, when I see all of our classmates in our checkerboard for class, it still feels like that safe space.”
