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 to 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.
If you’re looking for professional actor training and Meisner classes in London, then you are in the right place.
Working with Scott opened the door again for me. It rebooted me, gave me energy and the desire to go forward.
Scott’s teaching spans over 40 years and includes the likes of Colin Morgan, Jake Wood, Jaime Murray, Vincent Elbaz, Jacquie Lee Pryce, Lee Williams and Adam Garcia.
Our response to Covid-19
The safety and wellbeing of our students and tutors will always be our priority and we will keep a close eye on developments and follow government guidelines. In addition, we will discuss with each class what level of contact they are comfortable with when working and respect individual decisions. We will have face shields available for those who wish to use them and will also supply hand sanitiser and wipes for chairs. 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.
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.
We only offer Drop In classes to those who have studied extensively with Impulse, here or with one of our international associates. Drop Ins are currently suspended due to Covid.
Scott offers an occasional short Introductory course.
