Check out Actors Weekly Advice & Tips: Videos from Michelle Danner
This week: Michelle Danner talks about a comprehensive approach to acting techniques
The technique we use to teach at our studio is eclectic, its a little bit of everybody combined in our own approach. When I was 18 and I was in New York studying I had the chance to study with Stella, Berkoff, Uta Hogen. Though one thing I never believed
the one thing I never believed in was dogma and so when I sat in on many classes and many teachers talked about one way of doing things, that always make me run
except for Stella. When Lee Strassburg died, she said a man of the theater died today, there will be a minute of silence for him and after a minute of silence, and after she said and it will take one hundred years to undo the horror that he has done
All of the acting icons: Stella Adler, Lee Strasburg, Bobbie Lewis, Sanford Meisner, and the last one to join them, Uta Hogen are all in heaven, there might be a blood bath going on
because they all go my way is the ultimate way, and there are many different ways, find the ways that work for you
