Beginning Meisner Technique with Dana Marks
Is there something about your current acting technique that leaves you unsatisfied?
Are you curious about acting training and want to see how serious actors study?
Join the Beginning Online Meisner Technique class and experience training that is easy to grasp, deeply personal and accessible so that you can curb old habits, get real about what you see and feel onstage, and find your way to more authentic, believable performance.
The beginning class explores Sanford Meisner's famous "Repetition Game" as THE tool for more honest listening and authentic response to your partner/partners onstage. The game evolves into improvised scene work with a partner so that actors can practice responding genuinely and spontaneously before layering on a script. Become deft at noticing human behavior and using it to fuel believable action onstage!
This online Meisner class is a great place to start!

Hear From Our Students
Back-to-one acting studio gave me an amazing experience. I took a two week course with Jess Barbour on TV and film. I got taught how to Slate, How to prepare for an audition, How to act on camera, and even more. Every single worker that works at back-to-one are working actors/actresses and they are extremely talented. I am planning to go to back-to-one a lot more, and I would love to keep working because of all the workers there.
What a talented group of individuals ready to help you learn and grow your acting abilities! My 12yo daughter continues to enjoy improving her skills here. They offer a variety of classes and workshops. We both highly recommend Back to One Acting Studio to anyone interested in getting into acting or continuing to learn on their acting journey.
I love Daryl's vision for Back to One is simply put...amazing. I'm so impressed by his passion for his craft and the love he puts into every thing he does. I took the Character Building Class with Gus (totally recommend, btw) and I feel like it really helped me hone my own craft. I can't wait to see what BtO becomes in the future!
