Welcome to the Michael Chekhov Acting Studio in New York City, home to trainings and workshops based on Michael Chekhov Technique and exploring the actor's work as play since 1996.
"This work has transformed me as an actor. It allows me to create without boundaries and is incredibly fun. I've never felt a sense of play as I do when using the Chekhov technique."
“The work feels like play, it exercises my focus and teaches me to trust my own instincts. In conjunction with the Alexander technique this work makes me aware of energy and how I can direct it, utilize it and work with it.”
“Mr. Lenard Petit is the real deal! During class, he is always calm, cool and collected. When he is teaching or sharing you see his passion, his love in the work.”
“I really appreciate the time taken with each student to ask questions, check-in, and process what is occurring for us as we encounter the work.”
"My imagination and sense of play are coming back to life!"
