Sanford Meisner's unique approach to acting has been serving actors needs for decades. As one of the original members of The Group Theater, Meisner created a technique for honing the actor's instincts using what he called the "repetition exercise". Meisner's approach re: "the reality of doing" replaced "thinking" with realizing "truthful behavior in the imaginary circumstances". 

On December 7, 2017 I will give students an opportunity to participate in the "repetition exercise". I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the experience of what it means to work from your truthful self sans thought.

Alan Gordon Studio TESTIMONIALS

Roeshawn Hunter After attending countless workshops and classes in search of a great Meisner class, I found one when I met Alan Gordon. From the first day - I learned much about the acting technique - including the history, successful actors who use it and the exercises associated with it. Alan's humor and patience creates a great aura and class environment. He teaches with passion and guides you through each exercise until you gain the confidence to move to the next step. He is by far one of the best teachers that I've ever worked with... (more)


VIDEO : INTERVIEW

Jerry Liu Films | INFP Stories : I talk to Meisner method acting teacher Alan Gordon, based out of New York City. I took a sampler class with him in 2014, and it was a lot of fun. I wanted to bring him onto this channel to talk more about the craft of acting. We also talk about classic actors like Marlon Brando. Enjoy this conversation. Let us know what you want us to talk about next time!

Marisa Karchin I can’t recommend Alan Gordon Studio enough. I am an opera singer, and I came to Alan’s class hoping to develop a foundational acting technique. His Meisner Technique class surpassed my expectations, and I’m so happy to have found such a caring, knowledgeable, and motivating mentor. While the other acting classes I had taken in New York City offered tricks and quick fixes, Alan’s course provides a clear, methodical and organic approach to acting. His realization of the repetition exercise teaches you to be fully present and to react instinctively and vulnerably; to... (more)

Mike DeBlis The environment he creates in his classrooms fosters learning. Mistakes are part of the journey and he makes it possible for everyone to grow and learn from our mistakes. His teaches with a precision that encourages freedom of expression. The discipline he provides allows us to spread our wings and fly.

David Kilgannon When I first began studying the Meisner Technique with Alan towards the end of 2016 I had zero prior acting experience. Didn't have acting contacts and pretty much felt like an imposter. Studying with Alan, I have progressed through several Meisner stages and at this point I have seen evidence that the technique will work even for me. Alan gives pointed feedback in a manner that is supportive and allows for greater risk-taking and subsequent learning. My experience has been fantastic and I highly recommend studying with him...

Alan Gordon Studio TESTIMONIALS

Ivan Goris What can I say that I have not said about Alan Gordon Studio. When I first spoke to Alan about taking his class, the first thing I said was, "I need you to be honest with me and not blow smoke up my ass. I want to be a better actor." His response, "I never resort to false praise. You will always get truthful feedback from me." He never let me down. Alan is an actor's encyclopedia. I mean I'm a guy who grew up in the Projects of NYC, and I didn't know the difference between emoting and living truthfully, and thanks to Alan I know the difference and I rely on the instincts I developed while studying with him...

Michael Barbieri (Movie Review For Spider-Man : Homecoming) The reality is, not every superhero movie needs world-threatening stakes. The main thrust of the story revolves around a series of heists and low-level transactions. By keeping the story of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” relatively low-key — there are no giant lasers shooting into the sky at any point, which feels like a breath of fresh air...
