Wherever you are in your process is the entry point. Learning happens in the body and is a process of profound transformation. I believe in remaining an eternal student. Each day on the floor is an opportunity to grow and challenge ourselves to evolve. I prioritize creating a safe, supportive environment where students can explore and express themselves fully. Every student has unique gifts and talents, and it is my job to help each student find their own voice and path. My classes are highly experiential, focusing on embodied learning and exploration. Students learn best when they can engage with the material actively and are supported in taking risks and pushing themselves beyond their perceived limitations. I strive to create a classroom environment that is safe, collaborative and empowering. I am committed to helping students develop a deep understanding of themselves and their emotional and energetic bodies, unlocking the performer’s full potential, and creating authentic, meaningful, and transformative work.



“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.”
