Philosophy

As a teacher, my goal is to help my students cultivate true awareness of their bodies and minds. The more awareness we have, the more versatile we become. This is why theatrical combat training is so valuable. It’s not just about learning to portray violence safely on screen and stage, it’s also about having control over our own bodies, being truly present with others, and adapting to unexpected situations.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

My other passion is helping actors to self-produce their own projects. I firmly believe that self-producing is one of the best tools actors have to empower themselves and advance their careers. Don’t wait for permission to be an actor. Get out there and act!

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

“I was placed in the intense reigns of Charlie Sandlan.  I became a better artist, actor, friend, sibling and daughter because of the studio. Even now, I crave the studio every day. What I learned is present in my work every day. I truly believe in everything they stand for.”

Maggie taught me that I could control my work, my acting, and to throw all of the bullshit out that I had in my head about ‘what I should be doing’ and to just listen and respond honestly, in the moment. She gave me a craft. She is, quite simply put, THE BEST.”

Maggie Flanigan taught me the true meaning of artistry, passion, and professionalism. I am certain that I continue to work as an actress because of my training with Maggie. At every audition and every performance, her guiding voice is with me. It is a gift beyond measure.”
