The Method described in this text has a scientific foundation and has been developed by many researches and practitioners over the period of hundred years. It has been tested on many generations of students in various countries just to prove that this approach is universal. The Method of learning Movement for Actor expressed in nearly two hundred of exercises, which would develop all necessary for performer Faculties, Habits, and Skills. Never before this method originated in Russia was presented in such a detail and completeness on the West. Based in Konstantin Stanislavsky’s teaching about Acting, this technique would also be of assistance to Stage Movement Teachers, Theatre Directors and Managers.

Edward Rozinsky obtained his formal education in the Soviet Union and has a Bachelor Degree in Geography, a Bachelor Degree in Stage Directing and a Master Degree in Stage Movement. Mr. Rozinsky started his career in Performing Arts at the age of 12 - first, as a folk dancer, then as a Mime artist. Since graduating from the prestigious Leningrad Conservatory of Theatre Arts Edward Rozinsky acted, choreographed, directed plays, and taught theatre in different institutions including his Alma mater. Mr. Rozinsky’s extensive research in the area of Stage Movement and Mime resulted in a series of articles and a book, “The Silent Art” published in Leningrad. Edward established and directed a Mime/Clown group in Leningrad that later became internationally acclaimed under the name LITZEDEJI. Many of his pupils and actors of this company now successfully perform as clowns in Cirque du Soleil and his apprentice, Slava Polunin owns the “Slava’s SnowShow” that appeared both on Off Broadway and Broadway and travels around the world. Prof. Rozinsky taught Acting and Stage Movement at the University of Miami, The New World School of the Arts, FIU and Barry University. A resident of South Florida since 1983, Mr. Rozinsky was a Founder and Artistic Director of Chamber Theatre, a professional theatre for children in Coral Gables.

His comprehensive textbook Essential Stage Movement is about to be published and a unique Video Instructor course is offered via the Internet ( Edward’s passion to write plays began in Russia (where most of his plays and film scripts were produced.) Mr. Rozinsky has written several plays in English (some of them produced in his Chamber Theatre), a ballet libretto that had been produced in Kazakhstan National Opera Theatre, several film scenarios, and a musical to which he also wrote the lyrics and composed key songs.
