You are welcome to audit the first two classes of a beginning session class, but after that, no auditing is allowed. This was Sanford Meisner’s policy as well, and his reasons were clear:
- First of all, this truly is a technique, taught brick by brick. If you were to audit a class without the benefit of experiencing all the teachings and technique leading up to it, the content would be extremely confusing.
- Secondly (and equally as importantly), due to the depth and sensitivity of the work, Sandy felt it was inappropriate and disrespectful to the students to have strangers dropping into their classes. That said, Jim created MEISNER TRAINED, an online teaching series of over 70 videos of Jim teaching and the work at various stages. This teaching series is a wonderful chance to experience a more in-depth glimpse of the training and is free of charge.
