Summer Acting Programs Available For Actors In NYC

June 18, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - The New York City based Maggie Flanigan Studio is pleased to invite actors of all kinds to take part in their summer acting programs in NYC. The renowned academy is known for hosting programs that help actors reach deep within themselves to bring true character to their performances. The summer intensive in particular is based on the training developed by Sanford Meisner to teach professional actors.

Stephanie Leva was a student of the academy's summer acting program who decided to continue on to the two-year acting program that is also available for those who complete the summer intensive. During the interview, she affirmed, "My first year at the Maggie Flanigan Studio has been life-changing. I was looking for some training so I could have the best tools in my toolbox as an artist. I went to a few other studios and MFA tours, but the second I had my tour and interview with Charlie Sandlan, I knew this was the place for me."

She explained that there were many specific aspects that led her to choose the Maggie Flanigan Studio over others in the area, but the versatility of the classes was ultimately the deciding factor for her, as the studio offers a personalized experienced that can be adjusted according to a student's needs. The Summer program offers a number of mandatory classes, which teach students the basics of acting under the Meisner technique. These are complemented with auxiliary content, freely chosen by the attendants according to their needs and preferences, allowing them to work on their weaknesses or develop their strengths. This makes it so that students can form their own schedule and attend the program for 15-26 hours a week, depending on their class load.

The Maggie Flanigan Studio explains that, due to the fact that most of the program's attendants are currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree, the program seeks to help them understand the importance of hard work in this form of art. This gives them a new understanding of the important fundamentals that any serious actor should possess. The pace of the program, as well as the topics covered, encourages the student's growth, preparing them as best as possible to pursue a career in the acting industry.

Leva said, "The versatile classes they offer have amazing, professional teachers. Everyone in the studio wants the best for you and they expect the best every time. Everyone is required to bring their full, free self to every class."

She also explained that, while the program's atmosphere was always an encouraging one, constructive criticism was always present. "Charlie and the other teachers do not sugar coat anything; they will tell you the truth no matter what it is, and I 100% loved that! I am not here to be babied or receive false praise, I am here to work on my craft and become the best artist I can be,” said the student.

According to the acting academy’s alumni, this is what makes Maggie Flanigan Studio's program one of the best summer acting intensives New York has available. Leva believes this critique and advice is invaluable for all students, as it presents them with many growth opportunities under the tutelage of experienced actors that know the industry first-hand. She said, "This studio is what makes you professional! This studio is what sets you above the bar. If I have grown this much in the first year, I cannot wait for the second year to start."

The academy states that their mission is to give students a new appreciation for the timeless craft of acting, while teaching them a significantly clearer process on how to write and shape their own work. This can be a useful resource to help both those who are struggling to decide on a career path and those who are already pursuing a BA degree.

Japan briefs diplomats on Fukushima nuclear water concerns

Sep 15, 2019

TOKYO — Japan tried to reassure foreign diplomats Wednesday about safety at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant amid concerns about massive amounts of treated but radioactive water stored in tanks. Diplomats from 22 countries and regions attended a briefing at the Foreign Ministry, where Japanese officials stressed the importance of combating rumors about safety at the plant, which was decimated by a 2011 earthquake and tsunami, while pledging transparency. The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co., or TEPCO, said last month that it would run out of storage space for the water in 2022, prompting South Korea to raise safety...

Japan's move to lower South Korea trade status takes effect

Sep 15, 2019

TOKYO — Japan's downgrading of South Korea's trade status has taken effect, a decision that already set off reaction and hurt bilateral relations. As of 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Japanese manufacturers must apply for approval for each technology-related contract for South Korean export, such as fluorinated polyimides used for displays. South Korea's previous status as a preferential trade partner meant simpler checks on exports. Since Japan announced the decision, South Korea decided to similarly downgrade Tokyo's trade status, which will take effect next month. Seoul has also canceled a deal to share military intelligence with Japan. South Korea has accused Japan...

China lets currency sink to 11-year low after Trump threats

Sep 15, 2019

BEIJING — China allowed its yuan to sink to an 11-year low Monday after President Donald Trump sent jittery financial markets tumbling by announcing new tariff hikes and threatening to block American companies from doing business with this country. The escalation in the fight over trade and technology prompted warnings that chances for a settlement were disappearing. The yuan declined to 7.1468 to the dollar, a relatively modest change from Friday's low point of 7.0927 but its weakest rate since January 2008. The yuan has lost 6.5% from this year's high on Feb. 28. Chinese leaders have promised to avoid...

Sep 15, 2019

BEIJING — China on Thursday threatened retaliation if Washington steps up their war over trade and technology by going ahead with planned Sept. 1 tariff hikes on additional Chinese imports. Beijing will take unspecified "necessary countermeasures," the Cabinet said in a one-sentence statement. It gave no details or any indication plans for trade talks in Washington in September might be affected. The mounting tension has unnerved financial markets that worry the global economy will tip into recession. President Donald Trump says he plans to impose 10% duties on an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports, extending penalties to almost everything...

China's Xi gets tougher on Trump after new tariff threat

Sep 15, 2019

BEIJING — Facing another U.S. tariff hike, Chinese President Xi Jinping is getting tougher with Washington instead of backing down. Beijing fired what economists called a "warning shot" at Washington by letting its yuan currency weaken in response to President Donald Trump's latest threat of more punitive import duties on Sept. 1. Chinese buyers canceled multibillion-dollar purchases of U.S. soybeans. Regulators are threatening to place American companies on an "unreliable entities" list that might face curbs on their operations. Both sides have incentives to settle a trade war that is battering exporters on either side of the Pacific and threatening...
