Our mission is to clarify and nurture the highest ethical and artistic standards in the education and training of actors and acting teachers.
We believe passionately in the craft of acting as an extraordinary storytelling tool, and its unique ability to evoke empathy and illuminate the human condition.
As teachers, we serve as the entry point for those embarking upon the study of this craft, as well as those seeking to deepen their understanding of it. We are uniquely positioned to shape future generations of artists as global citizens who can impact society both on and off the stage.
By unveiling best practices and broadly promoting the highest standards of excellence in acting and actor training, we aim to serve as a beacon for teachers, students and administrators alike. We serve to empower and support teachers of all acting disciplines—technique, voice, movement—and foster personal and institutional collaboration, development, and discussion.
Healthy and proficient actor training programs produce healthy and proficient actors, who serve as the bedrock of the theatre, film, and television industries. We aim to preserve and promote the collective knowledge and wisdom of a generation of acting teachers, so that the craft of acting—which has been passed down from generation to generation for thousands of years—may continue to thrive, and our society, culture, and arts industries along with it.
