The Art of Acting since 1961

Shelton Students gain the art and craft of acting, which lasts for life, and applies to all mediums. They gain the opportunity to discover their true voices and they gain the inspiration to dedicate themselves to working professionally as artists. Developed by national treasure Jean Shelton and Robert Elross. They brought with them from New York an extensive knowledge of method acting from their relationships with Stella Adler (responsible for Brando and De Niro), Harold Clurman (commonly thought of as the finest mind in the American Theatre), and Broadway actor/director Wendell Phillips, among others. Matt Shelton has assembled the finest staff available and thoroughly trained them to teach Jean’s acting technique and multi-disciplinary programs using techniques from American Method Acting masters such as Stella Adler, Lee Strasberg, Sanford Meisner, Uta Hagen as well as Russian acting techniques from Micheal Chekhov and Yevgeny Vakhtangov. All our teachers are lifelong director/actor artists.
