THE CONSERVATORY AT THE TOM TODOROFF STUDIO IS AN IN-DEPTH PROFESSIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM FOR EMPOWERING ACTORS - NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE OR IN-PERSON!

We are based in the heart of New York City: the world’s largest and most enthusiastic theatre community!

We are deeply committed to your growth as a person and as an actor in a supportive yet rigorous training environment.

AN ACTOR IS A PROFESSIONAL HUMAN BEING.

We are dedicated to raising your level of consciousness; to increasing the vitality and aliveness in your work and in your life.

We believe in nurturing the whole instrument – head, heart, and hips.

TRAINING IN THE PROGRAM IS COMPREHENSIVE AND CHALLENGING, AS OUR FACULTY IS UNPARALLELED.

  • You’ll learn to speak with muscularity and clarity.

  • You’ll learn to move gracefully and powerfully.

  • You’ll learn to communicate and to compete.

  • You’ll produce, write, direct, edit and act in your own short films.

  • You’ll develop your craft and your humanity.

  • You’ll be well prepared for our profession and ready for a life of continual learning as an open, generous, passionate and deeply committed artist.

Make bold choices… Offer strong proposals… But, what? And, how?  Beginning with the theory that enthusiasm and curiosity are the seeds of creation, this class will investigate how each individual’s unique relationship to play informs the act of collaboration and the building of material as an ensemble.  Students will be encouraged to courageously start making a mess right away. Then together we will use a playful spirit to explore how some beautiful and hysterical poetry might develop from that mess. 

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

 

I’m thrilled and humbled to be able to offer another CLOWN WORKSHOP...
Coming up  May 18&19, 2019

 

We had an astonishing maiden voyage

so I’m thinking, if there’s wind in this sail let’s keep the ship going.  It would be a real treat to get stupid with you for the weekend.

I’ve been teaching clown and acting for several years now and I’m finally going to run my own class! 

 

I’m excited to announce a Pop-Up Clown workshop. This is the first of what I hope will be many more. It is my wish to create a collaborative environment where we can play and grow together.

-The Reviews-

"...And there is love: the devotion of the three sisters to each other; Maria’s worn-out love for her husband, very well played by Christopher Tramantana, who is optimistically clueless..."

"This intensely satisfying production of Three Sisters... moves through that world with a good deal of directness..."
