the salon:collective is a community of multi-disciplinary artists based in London. We train actors, develop writers and deliver corporate communication training.
The ethos of our training is influenced by the Meisner technique of acting. Each tutor has a fully grounded knowledge of the technique, in addition to their own specialism: physical theatre, Shakespeare and classical text, vocal technique and accents, acting for screen.
As one of the main providers of Meisner training in the UK, we balance an emphasis on remaining truthful, present and connected with awareness of the needs of the industry. Our small group classes offer in-depth attention from experienced, caring and passionate coaches. We believe that an actor never stops training and, whatever your level of experience, we’ll find something to challenge you.
We can often be found at the Cockpit Theatre in Marylebone, where we run most of our courses. Quick links to Acting Classes on offer:
