Impulse UK

Welcome to ImpulseUK – the London home of our unique Meisner-rooted performance techniques.

Artistic Director Scott Williams trained with Sanford Meisner at Neighborhood Playhouse in the 1970s, relocating in London in the mid-1990s following a San Francisco-based career as a teacher and director. He now teaches and directs internationally and has shared his commitment to helping actors become the best they can be with thousands of practitioners all over the world.

Our response to Covid-19

The safety and wellbeing of our students and tutors will always be our priority and we will always keep a close eye on developments and follow government guidelines. When we resume classes at the end of September 2020 we will be asking students to wear masks in class, replacing them with clear face shields (supplied by us) when ‘working’. We will also supply hand sanitiser and wipe down all surfaces between classes. Should we find ourselves in lockdown, classes will move online with the aim of resuming face to face as soon as it is advisable to do so.

Our courses

Modular year course

We offer entry to our part time modular Year course in Spring, Autumn and Winter each year. Because there is so much demand for in depth study, ImpulseUK is currently focussed on the Year course and its associated Second Year course.
