West Hollywood Intensive Program

The West Hollywood Intensive Program is designed to introduce both the experienced and inexperienced adult actor to the Method. The curriculum is based on our full-time programs: Method Acting, Acting for TV/Film, and additional electives that vary each session. This program is suited for university students, working professionals, and those students who are only able to attend a short program that would like to be exposed to new possibilities in their acting throughout the calendar year – winter, spring, summer and fall.

Intensives are offered seasonally at the Institute and run congruently to the regular adult Institute programming. Intensives are 2 or 3 weeks in length, depending on the session, and are for students wishing for a focused and concentrated taste of The Method. All intensives have a set curriculum that pushes students toward a certain level of training in acting, while building a basic understanding of Lee Strasberg’s work.

Intensives are broken down as follows:

Winter Intensive Course (February, 2 weeks)
Spring Intensive Course (May, 2 weeks)
Summer Intensive Course (July(Mid-Summer), 3 weeks OR August(Late-Summer), 3 weeks)
Fall Intensive Course (October(Fall A), 2 weeks OR November(Fall B), 2 weeks)
