“Students who take the NMCA course for one week come back a Year ahead of their class.” Kevin A. Marshall, U of FL
If you are acting, educating and or directing/designing in theatre or film, this course provides the most comprehensive immersion into Michael Chekhov’s approach to acting, directing and teaching. Taught in a rapid style that is welcomed by today’s students, the entire scope of tools is covered at least three times with experiential sequences of discovery and play, improvisation, scene study and deeper insights. This session will bring to you the students’ experience of learning these ways of teaching acting and movement classes. After bringing this knowledge into your classroom, you may choose to begin the NMCA Certification Track, arriving filled with confidence about what you do know AND what you want to know more. You will be ready to discover the more subtle nuances of the pedagogy and the teaching styles and challenge your master teachers to support you with more specific mentorship for your personal applications. You are provided syllabus support, hand outs and ongoing feedback through the year if you choose.
*This non-certification track requires no commitment to submitting documentation, capstone projects, oversighted teaching, etc. While attending first as a student is very helpful, it is not a pre-requisite for the NMCA Certification Track, that can be entered directly.

This rigorous Chekhov Intensive is the longest established program in the world, with its faculty working together since 1989, developing a consistent path of an actor learning this approach for applications to Theatre, Film, Television, Directing, Design, Auditioning and SynthAnalysis.
We do recognize it is likely both the fastest paced Chekhov Intensive and the most challenging. It is great for today’s learning styles. For advanced training, teaching oversight, and mentorship, consider the Teacher Certification.
The National Michael Chekhov Association (NMCA) Chekhov Teacher Certificate requires attending two week long intensives, documentation required with each attendance and completing a capstone project documenting in video and text your demonstrating rich knowledge of the techniques, skillful dissemination of the technique and clear embodiment of principles indicated by Michael Chekhov and by NMCA co-founder and Chekhov Estate Executrix Mala Powers. Completion of attendance requirements does not guarantee Certification. Attendance as a student prior to beginning the Certification track can be an excellent advantage for a teacher seeking to meet the Certification Requirements. If you are eager to get started on the Certification track immediately, please enroll in that program rather than here.
