Acting Classes

Hone your craft, sharpen your skills and be in the room with other high quality actors.

Lee established his classes in early 2018 as a no-frills, Practical Aesthetics-driven approach to acting classes for the working actor.

The classes are designed to be as close to a professional environment as possible. The feedback is concise and to the point, moving the work along. The pace reflects that of a set or in an audition, training actors to be able to take direction and adjust their performances to industry-standards.

What to expect

You will find your strengths, build your self-esteem and confidence which will fill you with a deeper understanding of what you have to offer as an actor and what makes you unique.

We will get you out of your head and teach you Practical Aesthetics, a literal, straight to the point approach to acting that gets you on your feet quickly.

You will develop a greater understanding of how to market yourself as well as a technique that allows you to confidently walk into an audition room, deliver a brilliant performance and leave knowing you did a great job.

Love working with Lee. Every class is a highlight of the week. 1956 Studios uses very practical technique that will help any actor work on any scene, find their strong sides, identify casting types and be truthful. And, finally, it’s just lots of fun, positive emotions and you’re getting to work with a bunch of amazing and very talented people.

I have found 1956 Studio’s classes tremendously helpful! It has helped me improve my ability work openly & honestly. I feel I have made such progress in a relatively short time & I would recommend these classes to everyone.

In a world that lacks connection and intimacy it is becoming more and more pressing and absolutely necessary that we can experience humanity through art. I train actors to find their own truths, who they are, what they bring to table, what excites them in life and how that can be displayed in their acting to create dynamic, colourful and in-depth characters. Who are you? What makes you different? What’s your niche? How can you stand out from the myriad of wannabe actors?
