Cordie Nelson is a director in Chicago. She received her BA from the University of Southern Mississippi, where she assistant taught graduate and undergraduate Meisner Classes with Professor Sean Boyd (who received his training from Steve Rapella and Bill Esper at UTA.) Post graduation she taught some independent Meisner training in the city. From 2014 to 2015 she received training in all five levels of the Green Shirt Studio’s Meisner Technique, studying under both Sommer Austin and Andrew Gallant. She fell in love with this work the moment she was introduced to it, and her skills have been reinforced by excellent teachers over seven years of study and practice. She cares deeply about her students and knows that, with hard work, this technique will cultivate an incredible artist in them.
