NCS Classes

General Information

The sessions are on-going, paying four weeks at a time, limited to fourteen students. Actors may find their scripts from the files I provide in the studio, on their own, or write their own scenes that both challenge them, and keep them age appropriate to their scene partner.

The cost is $160 for four sessions, with a $35 refundable deposit. If you miss for any reason, it can be made up by coming to two sessions in one week so you never 'lose' the session.

Meisner Based Technique

Nancy Chartier Studios training is based on the Meisner Method. It's a very natural way of acting and encourages the actor to trust their instincts, be in the moment, be organic, and real.

 I absolutely love watching my Stars grow, and seeing the unique colors and individuality they are bringing to their work by discovering more layers in themselves.

Class Details

Nancy Chartier is your Coach, you will study directly with her every class. Her approach is based on the Meisner Method of Acting, and is very personalized, and she keepsThe Studio a safe space to learn and grow. It is an on-going acting session that cycles every 4 weeks. These classes rotate each week, Cold Read on Camera, Memorized on Camera, Cold Read Scene Preparation, and Wildcard which changes every four weeks and doesn't repeat for at least one year. Nancy uses this format as a tool to help each actor dig deep to discover and give voice to 'The Creative' inside, while also balancing all the technical aspects of acting for film. She strives to make sure her Actors are empowered with industry standard practices, proper technique, character development, and scene study, and basically all relevant and current information necessary in the ever changing and mercurial industry.

Youth Classes

The sessions are on-going, paying four weeks at a time, limited to ten students, for an hour and 45 minutes. 

I am very protective of the mores of the young actors, and I write the scripts to both challenge them and keep the content age appropriate concerning both language and situations.

There are four acting classes for $170;  siblings are offered a discounted price of $10, making it $160 per child. If you miss a class, you are able to make the class up by coming to another class; they don't expire.

Independent Study/Coaching

Private sessions are pre-sceduled time where you will have my fullest attention to work on whatever you may need.

 

It's a great way to prepare for an upcoming role, submit an audition tape, practice technique, review headshots or reel footage, or just ask questions.

 

The cost is $75 for an hour. Both in person & virtual available.
