Acting Courses

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

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

The courses 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 an audition, training actors to take direction and adjust their performances to industry-standards.

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.

Ethos

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?
