  • Actors tell us that the nurturing, but challenging creative environment at the BNI is unique and powerful. They also tell us that they enjoy being a part of the BNI ‘creative gymnasium,’ which gives them the opportunity to meet other actors and artists who share similar passions and goals. That is why we expanded our offerings beyond ‘improvisation’ to include basic and advanced acting training. We formed partnerships with several professional acting instructors so that the same creative nurturing environment we are known for in our improvisation programs could exist for actors. We have selected these instructors because their acting philosophies and teaching styles compliment the improvisation principles and workshops we offer at the Brave New Institute. These acting workshops are a great next step for improvisers who want to expand their tool belt. These programs also offer new and experienced actors the opportunity to sharpen their tools in a quality, nurturing environment(close)
