Uta Hagen, Respect for Acting

Are you eager to be introduced to multiple acting techniques? This online experience was designed to introduce actors to three of the most significant acting techniques used by successful actors today: those created by Uta Hagen, Lee Strasberg, and Sanford Meisner. Learn how to use sensory work, repetition, substitutions, specificity, and more to create layered and provocative performances. Taught by acting coach Pamela Scott, this class meets once a week online and requires homework outside of class.

This class is right for you if you...

Want a strong acting foundation from which to spring forward.
Are an acting nerd who wants to sample every technique out there.
Already know some Hagen, Strasberg, or Meisner exercises and feel ready to further the technique with a scene partner.


After this course, you will…

Have a thorough understanding of multiple key acting methods.
Understand the connection between the 3 techniques and your work.
Possess a variety of techniques to use for any role. 

“Acting is the most personal of our crafts. The make-up of a human being – his physical, mental and emotional habits – influence his acting to a much greater extent than commonly recognized.”

Lee Strasberg

Who are Hagen, Strasberg, and Meisner?

Uta Hagen, Lee Strasberg, and Sanford Meisner are three of the most influential acting teachers in history. Born in different parts of the globe, they each studied and built acting techniques based on Stanislavski’s prior work. Their impact continues to be felt in the world of film, theater, and television. Most renowned actors have some training in one or all of their methods.
