The 12-Week Program is a single-quarter program which is designed for both beginners wishing to explore the Lee Strasberg Method™ Acting and professionals wishing to brush up on their technique. Classes are conducted Monday through Friday (mornings, afternoons, and evenings) and Saturday afternoons.
Students in this program may choose between Full-Time and Part-Time programs. Full time programs consist of 12 weeks at 22 hours or 16 hours per week. The Part-Time program consists of 12 weeks at 8 hours per week. Students in the Part-Time program may register for additional elective classes à la carte, not to exceed 14 hours per week. All 12 week programs include 2 Method Acting classes per week, each 4 hours long. In order to provide a well-rounded Method Acting experience, students cannot choose Method Acting classes from the same instructor. Full-Time students may take any electives to complete their schedules.
If deemed successful in their classes and are considered in good standing by the LSTFI administration, students may re-register. Successful completion of this program is at the sole discretion of the LSTFI faculty and administration.
