We developed our six-week intensive ten years ago and have honed it in such a way that
students leave our program completely transformed! Because our expectations are higher
and the training itself is harder, Ward Studio faculty are able to realize profound
improvements in our students’ work in a short period of time.
For six weeks, our students train at a professional pace that requires a high quality of
attention and strong discipline.! Classes meet Monday-Thursday (generally from 10am –
6pm) leaving evening and weekend hours free for rehearsals and homework assignments.
Our curriculum is synergistic, with all courses building on each other. Rather than test-driving a variety of techniques, our students receive a cohesive approach that remains constant in each classroom they enter. The atmosphere of the intensive is both collegial and competitive. We will help you work at a faster pace, remain determined, become less sensitive to criticism and increase your stamina for professional life in the industry.
"I met Wendy Ward almost two years before I had the chance to study with her -- but I never forgot that meeting. After taking the Six-Week Summer Intensive, I can say that my impressions of Wendy were right. She cares deeply about her work. She is dedicated to her students and pushes them to surpass their limits. She instills a deep respect for the craft of acting and does not let students get away with anything less than truthful, inspired work."
