Miriam meets all prospective actors and together they decide if this work is right for them.
If you are interested in studying with Miriam, watch the class video (about the studio and online process) and then email her.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to apply
In the email tell her a bit about previous training in acting or related areas, life experience, and why you want to train with her. Please attach a resume and headshot if you have one.
Miriam will get back to you by email and arrange a time to meet with you online to establish an individual connection.
This procedure helps her tailor an individual program of study for each actor, preserves the integrity of the class, and ensures a safe space to explore the craft.
As the class size is limited, it offers a high value to those who are committed.
After admittance, payment will be made via PayPal for international students and online banking for Canadians.

Actors have found that studying with Miriam over a year or two builds their technique and forces them to take risks more effectively than going from teacher to teacher. The depth of training leads to a highly skilled and intuitive acting style in theatre, television, and film. Actors gain the freedom, the information, and the knowledge to explore the many choices available to them and become better actors as a result.
As is the policy in many studios there are no auditors except for those who have previously trained with Miriam and understand the work.
Actors who have studied with Miriam are welcome to come back to audit free of charge when they are not in a session.
Actors new to Miriam should arrange to meet her in person and watch the videos on this website as a virtual ‘audit.’
