At West Chester Studio for the Performing Arts, our focus is on the individual – as part of the group. We help our students move forward through their emotional and developmental journey – and build strong acting skills. The growth is process oriented and integrated with fun, because we all learn more when we are having fun. Our educators are talented professionals with exceptional teaching skills. You will see the result of highly effective teachers who foster a fun and nurturing environment on stage at our class performances and shows – rather than the glitz of big sets and extravagant costumes.
West Chester Studio for the Performing Arts is a community-wide acting and musical theater school. Our teachers are experienced professional actors and provide a high-caliber performing arts education to students of all ages and abilities from Chester County, Delaware County, Wilmington and Philadelphia. Students gain confidence and are encouraged to take risks in a fun, nurturing and safe environment.
At the Studio self-discovery through the Meisner Technique is a critical component in the development of quality acting skills. Each student develops and recognizes the importance of his or her own voice. Other acting influences include: Stella Adler, Viola Spolin, The Barrow Group, Terry Schreiber and Stanislavski. Because every performer is different we teach a number of acting techniques to find which technique resonates with each individual actor.
