If you loved The Essential Movements I, your opportunity to continue your study begins THIS WEEKEND! And there are still spots available!

The Essential Movements II provides a magical opportunity to dive into and become inspired by the movements of the world, from observation to practice, in order to unleash your dramatic potential. Generous and brilliant teacher Yuval Boim leads students through an analysis of The Twenty Movements, exploring and unveiling their hidden meanings. These movements strengthen the actor’s body, reawaken neural pathways in the body that generate a sense of playfulness, and increase awareness, concentration and presence.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to connect the individual to the ensemble and investigate the endless possibilities of space, time, rhythm and shape!

Throwback to Puppetry of the Past!
There’s still an amazing opportunity to study with renowned and celebrated puppeteer Tom Lee this season!

DIGITAL PUPPETRY
Teacher: Tom Lee
💥Dec 4 - 12

​​Discover the magical, limitless possibilities gifted to us by puppets! This workshop harnesses our present moment, creating a unique hybrid of traditional puppetry techniques and the possibilities of remote digital collaboration.

Join master puppeteer, director and designer Tom Lee (War Horse, Madama Butterfly at the Metropolitan Opera NYC) in embracing the ubiquitous Zoom rectangle to create a joint, distant puppetry piece using puppet figures, objects and common backgrounds. Students will bring a single puppet figure to life across multiple remote locations and have them traverse Zoom squares at will, creating a single narrative universe from multiple corners of the earth!

‼️Attention playwrights (emerging/established)!
Writing from the Body is BACK!

In this page-generating workshop, we harness the literal and figurative movement of the body, from the head to the feet, imagination to pen.

Each class employs a full-bodied movement prompt to ignite the dramatic imagination. An immediate in-class writing prompt then channels these discoveries toward the creation of new material. All styles of dramatic writing and scheming are welcome. Come with an idea for a new work or to continue a play-in-progress.

We invite actors to the final session to read excerpts of your work as we celebrate your writing achievement.

Taught by playwright and director Elena Zucker for the Movement Theater Studio.

Our Mime class begins TOMORROW!
And there are still a few spots available. 👏👏👏

Hailed by critics as the most accomplished, renowned mime of his generation, Bill Bowers leads students through a foundational - yet rigorous - study of mime technique! Mime is an ancient art form, one of the first performing arts in fact; it remains our first language. An essential aspect of contemporary theatre, mime has informed many areas of contemporary performing arts, from Modern Dance to Butoh, Hip Hop to Freestyle.

This short, playful workshop is a MUST for actors wanting to develop a deeper understanding of the possibility in using gesture over text, examine the power of stillness on stage, and gain a greater control over their body in movement.

This fall, discover the magical, limitless possibilities gifted to us by puppets through Shadow Puppetry! ✨
Taught by master puppeteer, director and designer Tom Lee (War Horse, Madama Butterfly at the Metropolitan Opera NYC).

“Puppets really are the origin of theater. Even the shadow on the wall of Plato’s cave was a puppet.” - Julie Taymor

Whether you regularly work with puppets, or you’re eager to dive into the joys of puppetry for the first time, SHADOW PUPPETRY provides a beautiful opportunity to create shadow theater using simple materials and tools in your own home. Building a theater, creating shadow figures and simple mechanisms, light sources and techniques, and puppetry performance with silhouettes will all be explored in this five-session workshop. This hands-on, practical class references some of the world’s most ancient shadow puppet traditions, all from your kitchen or bedroom.

FBF to laughs of the past, with Virginia Scott!
🤣😂😅

Coming up yet this season: PHYSICAL COMEDY!
Taught by the queen-of-all-things-funny Virginia Scott, Physical Comedy will help you discover how to design and execute physical comedy riffs to sprinkle into any performance as an actor, comedian or clown!

Over the course of this five-session workshop, you’ll watch and analyze some classic physical comedy turns, and then build some of your own! Try out a variety of categories of physical comedy such as problems with objects, takes, distraction and flights of fancy, and investigate how to develop these games using rhythm, repetition, sequencing successes and failures, escalation, and, of course, sharing with the audience.

By developing the necessary timing to go on this hilarious joy ride, you'll never be boring on stage or on screen, even when the writing is!

Oh man'o'man! I have been checking the website every hour - when are the new classes coming up!! Can't wait! And Happy New Year!!
I did Movement Theatre Studio's month long training a few years back. It is excellent. Challenging and highly creative teachings. Now I'm working online with them again to conquer the new world in which we find ourselves. Movement Theatre Studio is an excellent efficient way to train or continue to train. They know their stuff and are good people besides.
Tonight we had a MTS reunion!!!! I met Abigail Feinberg Rodriguez in the MTS Summer Intensive in 2014 (where does time go?) and tonight, she joined me on stage in Austin, Texas. I host open mics for theatre artists and performers. Abigail helped me out greatly tonight by coming and performing in some skits with me!!! I love that we met at MTS and we got to share the stage together tonight. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😍

Hi MTS community! Wanted to let you know about a great 2-hr Gibney workshop happening Sat AM 11-1 for just $5 at the Heal Me Too Festival! Using the transformative power of movement to heal the effects of gendered oppression or sexual violence. A beautiful way to start your weekend. Sign up here and check out all our #HealMeToo events thru 4/14!
Very grateful to Movement Theatre Studio for this life changing experience. I will come back for more without a doubt. This school is a rare jewel in the country and certainly the only of its kind in New York City. Providing actors with authentic physical acting training in the lineage of Lecoq, this school gives artists a deep sense of the power and importance of play to develop skill and creativity as a storyteller and as a member of an ensemble. The training will also serve directors, choreographers and playwrights. Richard and his faculty all share in common very high expertise in their craft with a wonderful sense of humour as they embark each of their students on a journey through self discovery and the art of theatre.
I went to your website to look at classes but it says your website is unavailable. Is there another place I can order classes?
