The Michelle Danner Acting Studio is based in Santa Monica, California. The Michelle Danner Acting Studio recognizes that every actor is unique. We help students to develop their own “Golden Box” of techniques and tools that they can use at any time. The Acting School’s acting techniques are based on the Meisner Technique, Lee Strasberg’s Method, Stella Adler, Stanislavski’s System, and the Chekhov technique.
We will teach you to develop your very own acting toolbox called the “Golden Box.” You will accumulate a comprehensive set of “acting tools” when approaching a role or a scene, whether it be for film, television, or theater.
Our performing art school provide’s a safe and pro-active environment that fosters creativity in our students. Our students are encouraged to take risks and work on challenging and daring material that will stretch them as actors and push them beyond their limits.
Our acting classes in Los Angeles are kept small so that each student has opportunity to work in every class. We ensure that each student receives the care and attention necessary to grow as an actor.
We have many students from West Hollywood, which is approximately 25 minutes to our studio by car.
