Planting the Seeds for Authentically Impulsive Acting – A Nine Week Meisner Experience & Two Year Conservatory

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 Fall Intensive & Two Year Conservatory 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 Fall Intensive in Meisner Technique, Movement, and Voice & Speech. This summer 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, Fall 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.

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

9-Week Fall Intensive

2-Year Conservatory Program

This 9-week introductory course is perfect for those looking to brush up on their connection to truthful response or those wanting to sample the work prior to the 2-year conservatory. Students start to cultivate certain core acting skills. Learn how to listen deeply, respond truthfully, and express yourself fully under any imaginary circumstances.

Are you ready to do what it takes to reach your goals and achieve artistic excellence? 

Dedicate yourself to serious training at Terry Knickerbocker Studio and discover how good you can be.

“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.”

Students

If you are a holistically minded actor and committed to being an artist then this studio is the best place to train. The faculty is wise and commits themselves outright to the blossoming of each student and the ensemble as a whole. This is not a studio to simply plow through the different level courses. Each student is invited to explore the difficult and delightful aspects of their work, and the teachers demonstrate great respect, patience, and joy in the work.

I cannot stress enough how this studio has made me a better actor/thinker. The work permeates life, serving both the student and the studio as a whole.

– Henry W.

Fall Intensive Student

Overall, I honestly feel like this was one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had. In the city, there are so many teachers and schools that feel like they don’t have your best interest or growth in mind and this was the opposite. I like that this was a space where you would actually learn about things or habits that as an actor you have but don’t know how to address.

Thank you not just to Terry but to everyone at the Studio for helping to create such a positive and open space. This whole experience starting from the interview with Kristan to the class itself has been nothing but fantastic.
