Mime Theatre Studio, Los Angeles:
Mime Theatre Studio (MTS) offers theatrical mime workshops, classes, and private coaching in Los Angeles in Southern California. Established in 2001, MTS teaches the art of Theatrical Mime to all types of performers and non-performers who wish to better understand how the body can be used to express character, thought, and emotion on stage or on screen. The study of Theatrical Mime goes much deeper than the stereotypes of mime such as performing illusions and imitating people. It is a highly-developed art form that uses physical techniques and dramatic concepts to help students learn the importance and value of non-verbal expression in their work. It develops their physical abilities and artistic understanding so that they are able to make effective choices and perform them with skill.

Skills are also drawn from the work of Polish mime master Stefan Niedzialkowski, the characters of the Commedia dell'Arte, and other sources.
