Here at Method Center Actors, our Ultimate "Most Valuable Patron" is (of course) the Creator of The Method and Godfather of Modern Acting... but it also stands for our:
Method Center Actors Inc. is a community of student artists and comradery of teaching artists working together towards the ultimate goal of success. MCAI redefines the basic meaning of success to meet the ethical standard of individual health, wealth, love and happiness. It is not only our duty to equip actors with the tools and resources they need to trek through the industry, but our pleasure to mentor them along the way. We seek to directly fill the gap of lacking technical development in the artists’ community, as well as indirectly fill the gap between where they are and where they want to be. We promote the Respect, Positive Attitude, Self-Discipline, Listening Sills, Hard Work and Patience required to be a strong actor. We meet students where they are at as individuals, and do not stand behind a ‘one size fits all’ curriculum. As our slogan promotes, our foundation is “Emphasized Work in Favor of the Quality Education and the Fair Representation of Artists Across the Nation.”
Here at Method Center Actors Inc., the concept of Personal Method Discovery is the cornerstone of our curriculum. We are here to mentor and equip, not talk at and sell-out endorse. At the same time, we are here to serve, not to be served. We offer a wide variety of training options specifically in favor of artists and in fitting their unique, individual needs. MCAI regularly seeks to foster a strong family-like relationship between our staff and students, and continues to make a point of setting the bar of excellence higher and higher. Being an actor means being an entertainer, as well as an educator. We ingrain the importance of understanding leadership, ethics, humanity, culture and history into our teaching, as well as the beautiful art and craft of acting as a whole. In doing so, we work hard to insure the best education to each artist, given that they work their hardest to meet us along the way. We are a team. We believe in the work of the Masters, just as our students believe in the us and we in them.
