Michael Chekhov Training Intensive - 76-hours of lecture, improv and practice

The flagship training program is the Michael Chekhov Training Intensive.  This 1-week intensive program provides 45-hours of intense practice in the techniques of Michael Chekhov, as enhanced and explained by Master Teachers, Lisa Dalton and Wil Kilroy.  These two cofounded the National Michael Chekhov Association with Mala Powers in 1993 and have taught this Intensive every year since.  In 2011 we expanded to two Intensives per year.  They are currently taught near Portland Maine during the July 4th week and Gainesville Florida over the January 1st holiday week.  To see details about the Training Intensive, click the link.
