"I learned a great deal from taking Michael Haney's acting class, at Palm Beach Acting School, about a year ago. I learned to connect with my scene partners better by listening and reacting to their emotions. I learned practical advice that has helped me in each and every audition. Take a class and see what you can learn from Michael. "

"Most people..well only one or two actually..know this..our daughter was diagnosed as possibly deaf..borderline autistic..went through a year of speech therapy and they wanted to do ear implants at 5..was failing everything in kindergarten and they wanted to put her in a special program for learning disabled..turns out she needed surgery to release her tongue..how this was missed I don't know..2 years later she attended an acting workshop with Michael Haney and was made to feel so confident and welcome! I think the next closest student was maybe 16 and up! When this page of notes came home I was flabbergasted and I keep it as a super fond momento! I remember my husband saying..is this ok..there are no other kids there..than him peeking in and calling me and saying..wow she is fine rolling on the floor being crazy..I am going for a beer and will go back when it's over! Thank you Michael Haney and all those that have supported our little one over the years! Michael Haney's workshops are for everyone who wants to learn to feel free in acting!"

"I've known Michael Haney for many years now and he is an excellent and talented acting teacher and coach. He is very knowledgeable and has complete grasp of the Meisner technique and he teaches it with enthusiasm, confidence and skill. In the beginning we started out doing simple exercises, then moved on to doing whole scenes. After just one year of studying with him, I have gone on to do TV shows, films and several parts in plays. I recommend him highly to anyone just starting out or to the seasoned professional who wants to get a better understanding of the Meisner approach and how to behave more truthfully under imaginary circumstances, the core of his teachings."
