The Golden Box, taught by Michelle Danner, is a two-day in depth interactive lecture that breaks down the technical map used at The Michelle Danner acting school. Michelle Danner's acting technique & philosophy called "The Golden Box" is based on the Meisner Technique, Lee Strasberg's Method, Stella Adler, Stanislavski's System, Uta Hagen, and the Chekhov technique. In this seminar you will learn to draw upon all different acting techniques to create you very own Golden Box.

The Golden Box will teach you how to get out of your head, follow your impulses, and begin to live completely in the moment. By finding your own unique emotional triggers, you will learn to access your full range of feelings and emotions at a moment's notice.

Learn how to create vivid, fleshed out, and interesting characters through an intense and emotional workshop with lectures and technique exercises. Michelle teaches a technique that is effective for actors of various skill levels. Actors around the world have found success studying with Michelle because she takes the emphasis off the dogmatic method and helps actors discover their own creativity.

The class focuses on answering the following questions:

- Why are some choices more powerful than others?
- How does one deliver a raw unforgettable performance?
- What specific tools can be applied to film, television, and stage work?
- How does one develop a personal story from scratch and discover material for a one woman/man show, screenplay, short or novel?

The class will be supported by film clips. There are discussions and analyses of performances by Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Anthony Hopkins, Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, James Dean and many others.

Exercises include learning how to build provocative and complex backstories by opening up your instrument emotionally and finding triggers and psychological gestures in your work. This class has served as more than an acting seminar as past participants have discovered profound truths about themselves as artists.
