                    The Michael Chekhov Technique with Jeffrey Glickman


The Actors Gym is the place for new and experienced actors who want to blast threw their boundaries and take the necessary risks to become a COMPELLING ACTOR. Having instructed hundreds of actors on the Michael Chekhov technique, Glickman has designed a clear and effective process, which provides the tools actors need to
live spontaneously and do what they really WANT and NEED TO DO - to take actions they never thought capable. Glickman’s ULTIMATE GOAL is to get you to “free yourself, from yourself” - TO GET YOU OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY.
The techniques implemented at The Actors Gym provide a very comprehensive WORK OUT as it basis itself in diligently and tirelessly working with instrument actors use - their body.
Glickman received his BFA from New York University’s, Tisch School of the Arts, where he studied at the Circle in the Square Conservatory and The Michael Chekhov Studio. He has taught the Chekhov work in Milan, Paris, New York, St. Louis and in Los Angeles at The Chekhov Studio, West.

What actors are saying…

"Jeffrey has an ability to see what each actor specifically needs. He has taught me a lot about what being honest with myself and what I am
experiencing in the moment really means. He is honest, patient, very dedicated and working with him is a great challenge but you always feel
very safe with him. By working with atmospheres and centers he gave me the tools to explore and develop characters in a new way – one that I
had not experienced before. He always says, “slow down”. That is what he really helped me do; to slow down and listen to myself. "
Denise Olsson, Stockholm, Sweden

"I am thankful that Jeffrey never stops pushing until I am really living in the moment. He encourages me and teaches me to liberate and let go of all the
walls I am holding on to, to let myself experience what I am experiencing, and learn how to work with it, and use it in the craft. I am learning how to
express honest experiences in the craft - Jeffrey settles for nothing less. " Nesma Saleh, Stockholm, Sweden

"Jeffrey showed me how powerfu l the Psychological Gestures really are. With concentration he gives each actor 100% individual attention and
insight. While he taught me about acting he also trimmed off some of the fat (bad acting habits ). Jeffrey always has your best interest at heart and
seems to know just how to reach you and make your art better! Hal Schart, USA
Arbetet med Jeffrey och Chekhov tekniken har varit väldigt viktigt och utvecklande för mitt arbete som skådespelare."
Bianca Cruzeiro, Stockholm, Sweden

"As an actor who tends to get stuck in her head, I am truly grateful for the chance Jeff provided me with to learn a method of approaching a
character through physical actions. Under Jeff’s carefu l instruction, I experienced the techniques working through me as intended. He provides an
open and relaxed atmosphere that allows you the freedom to experiment with these techniques without self-consciousness. It was a rare
opportunity and I am very glad I was able to take advantage of it. " Michelle Hand, USA

"Studying with Jeffrey gave my further insight as to how I can find emotional life by taking action to move my body in very specific ways. He
gave me tools to find how the character I’m working on might express what I am experiencing and provided a trusting space to not be afraid of
surprising myself." Ellinor Olmarken, Stockholm, Sweden

"I want to thank you for the training as it is now helping me do the trapeze act I am doing at the City Museum. After rehearsal last night I was
unbelievably stiff and sore. Another actor said it was because I was straining, trying too hard. She told me to remember your class, to breathe, to
relax by working with the floating or flying qualities. Now I am feeling sure that will work. So I thank you very much dear Jeffrey! " Elizabeth Herring, USA

"Jeffrey opened a new world for me in creating a character. The psychological gesture, the qualities of movement (floating, flying, molding,
radiating) have helped me find a different way to reach emotion and motivation. Jeffrey took me from a state of confusion and frustration of being
presented with something entirely different from what I knew, to an understanding of this new and enlightened technique of creating. I am gratefu l
I had the opportunity to do this work and would recommend Jeffrey due to his mastery of this technique."
David Wassilak, USA
