Since 1964 , more than actors, this school forms real amateurs, people who loves theater. The classes are on stage and it is a wonderful experience! It is called open improvisation acting class. This method was created by the french master Charles Dullin and developed by Maria Clara Machado. At first, Clara was the only teacher. With all the success, more classes were being opened. It is called open courses because there are no levels for beginners or professionals and each teacher print their marks and experience into the improvisation exercises . Students are divided by age and not by experience – 11-13 years old, 14-17 years old, and 18 years old onwards.
