Atlantic Acting School

The internationally acclaimed Atlantic Acting School has helped aspiring actors fulfill their dreams for more than 30 years. Founded by David Mamet and William H. Macy, the Atlantic has the only conservatory program in the world that offers in-depth training in Mamet and Macy’s unique and influential approach to acting: Practical Aesthetics, the Atlantic Technique. The school’s mission is to ensure that each graduate masters the essential analytical and physical disciplines of acting and to empower every student with skills necessary for success in the profession.


Simple, honest and straightforward, Practical Aesthetics is both an acting technique and a philosophy. The technique gives actors an empowering set of analytical and physical tools. The actor learns to analyze scenes for tangible, physically-playable objectives, and to use his or her imagination, voice, body and sense of play to bring the character and the story to life. The philosophy teaches self-reliance, professional work habits, and mutual support and respect between artists.
