Learn from the best
A Seattle legend, Arne Zaslove, has trained hundreds of actors in many styles of theater and storytelling all around the world. His theater expertise and a gift for nurturing talents ensure a life-changing learning experience. Arne is known for teaching not only acting skills, but also a mindset and thinking process of an actor. Even if you never acted before, Arne will help you find your most creative, free and imaginative side and become comfortable expressing it. Arne uses masks, theater games, visualization and metaphors to help each student's find their unique gifts and talents.
It is all about your mindset
When you are on stage, facing an audience, your mind can be your biggest enemy or your most loyal friend. It can be an obstacle or an asset. Actors do not just act differently, they use their brain differently. Dr. Anna Margolina, hypnotherapist, Master NLP practitioner, 2012 Humorous Speech District Champion will assist Arne and share some simple and easy-to use mind mastery techniques, which will make a difference.
Read what others are saying about Arne's training:
I always learn some new insights and approaches to theatre whenever I work with Arne Zaslove and Anna Margolina. The idea of central calm deep inside one's self to the point of "nothingness", then coming out from innocence into an imagined situation, without any sophistication at all, is liberating.
Thank you again for the workshops you gave us in Prague. There were a lot of fun and l definitely learned a lot of things not only for theater but for life. The concepts of Change and Patterns are very philosophical too.
Hi Arne- it was a really great workshop. I loved working with the mask with the objective to discover more about myself. The environment you created made me braver somehow, I feel affirmed and encouraged.

Meet your teacher: Arne Zaslove
Rid yourself of yourself to find yourself.
Arne Zaslove has been called a living cultural resource. He has served as a consultant for Cirque du Soleil (Kooza, Delirium, Corteo), as Commedia dell' Arte consultant for The Glorious Ones, which had its New York premiere at Lincoln Center (with music and lyrics by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens of Ragtime), and for Teatro Zinzanni in Seattle. He has collaborated with David Shiner on a one-man show in development under a grant from Pew Charitable Trust, and developed new material for Pomp, Duck and Circumstance, a circus/cabaret in Berlin.
Arne was the first American to study at Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris. There he absorbed a deep understanding of masks and of physical theater. His specialty in clowning and improvisation grew through his apprenticeship at Carnegie Mellon with commedia dell' arte master Carlo Mazzone-Clementi.
Arne's method of training actors was developed through years as Artistic Director of the National Theatre School in Canada, co-founder of the University of Washington PATP program, and Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia.
