An exclusive Masterclass
for professional actors looking for a tune-up

"There is no actor I know with more artistic integrity, love of the craft, and just plain know-how than Kirk Baltz."

About the masterclass

Focus for this specifik masterclass will for each actor be: Find your center - reside in and create from a place of simplicity, truth and conviction.

Kirk Baltz’s teaching is Method and Meisner-based, using repetition, movement, sensory work, improvisation, writing, script analysis and varying exercises. The masterclass is taught in a warm, truthful, humoristic and direct manner. Kirk encourages artists to fully be who they are while realizing their full potential.

"When I think of all Kirk Baltz continues to do as an actor while offering his workshops in the states and abroad I can’t help but wonder “how many artists has this man helped to change for the better?” Trust me when I say it’s a lot. They all now stand taller, go deeper and take the space they deserve while keeping it all insanely simple. Give yourself the gift of working with him, you’ll be glad you did."
