- An aspiring actor, director, producer, writer or public speaker who wants to learn from an expert in the field (without leaving home)?
- Seeking an artistic home and a creative community of fellow artists who will be there to keep you on track towards your personal and professional goals?
- Seeking full-self expression?
If so - you're in the right place!
In case you're new to the TT Studio, we are an international acting studio based in New York City, where our Acting Conservatory is housed. Have a look at Tom's client roster, testimonials and bio! Also, check out this acting reel and this coaching & keynote speaker reel. We hope this gives you a better sense of who we are and the work we do with actors worldwide!
Weekly Workshop Schedule:
Class meets once a week from 11:00am - 4:00pm EST. Click here to check the start time in your time zone. We highly recommend signing on anytime between 10:00am and 10:45am EST to give yourself plenty of time to get connected and get settled before we dive into the work at 11:00am. The TT admin team is also more available to assist with any technical issues you may encounter before the class is underway. Please also note that we will keep the online sign up link live up until 9:00am EST the morning of each Weekly Workshop Saturday. After that, the sign up window will end and the link will be taken down -- so make sure you sign up anytime before 9:00am the morning of the Weekly Workshop you plan to attend!
Join us for all or part of this session, as your time allows. We completely understand if you need to leave early or sign in and out throughout the day. Whenever possible though - stay for the entire workshop, because the learning is cumulative. Your personal and artistic growth correlates directly to the time and effort you devote to regular training (no surprise here)!
11-11:30am - Technique Review! TT Studio Director, Emily Moulton, will lead a weekly review of the Todoroff Acting Technique (highly recommended for newcomers and for returning students who need a refresher!) Students are welcome to log on at 11:30am if they're already familiar with the technique and therefore don't require this review session.
11:30am-4pm - Coaching Time! Tom Todoroff will coach performers on material they've prepared and signed up to work on in class! All performers are expected to have completed the basic performer requirements before signing up to work in class so that they can benefit fully from the coaching session!
We also frequently invite extraordinary Guest Artists to visit and teach a bit in the Weekly Workshop! Some of these artists are on faculty at our Conservatory in NYC - others are simply longtime friends and colleagues who've worked with Tom in theater or on film and TV productions in the past!
Instruction in the workshop is done by way of demonstration: Tom will coach several performers during each workshop - showing them (and all students in attendance) how to use this technique to make the most dynamic performance choices - every time. Tom will call on several performers in no particular order every Saturday - selecting from the list of people who've submitted a Performer Request Form. If you submitted a request to perform and you weren't called on the very next Saturday, your name will stay on the list until you are called on! Please know that whether or not you perform - you will walk away with MANY notes and actionable advice for auditioning, rehearsing and performing that you can begin to apply NOW!
Performing in class:
To request to perform in class 1) sign up for the Weekly Workshop (either a specific date or the whole month) 2) complete the basic performer requirements 3) submit a Performer Request form (the link to this form will be in the Thank You message you receive upon signing up!)
What if I prefer to observe?
This is FINE. Some say they learn just as much, if not more, from observing than from performing. In fact, we prefer you observe a few classes when you're new, before jumping in the performer pool. This allows you time to integrate our very specific technique at your own pace!
$19.99 USD per session FOR A VERY LIMITED TIME! The value of each session is actually $100 USD. So - act now to join us for this deeply discounted rate while we're still able to offer it!
Enroll for the month to also receive our TOOLS FOR THE TRAINING. This includes our Syllabus and a wealth of valuable resources, readings, recommended writers, links to scenes, monologues, daily exercises etc. compiled over the 40+ years that Tom has been teaching.
While we love meeting new people who want to join us on a drop in basis, the real progress occurs through consistent, consecutive, cumulative sessions. As anyone with a background in dance, athletics, or music will tell you - practice, practice, practice in order to see progress. Training to be a confident, highly-skilled performer is no different. We all need a mentor and an artistic community of supportive collaborators to keep us on track - now more than ever! For this reason, we recommend enrolling in weekly workshops on an ongoing basis.
