    Course Details

    Our Beginners acting course is great fun and perfect for those who've always wanted to try out acting or for those who have a burning desire to return to it after a long break.

    Run by very supportive and engaging tutors, the course will help you build confidence and feel more at ease in front of an audience, whether in a professional or social context, and introduce you to many of the basic tools actors use on stage and screen.

    • Fun, group exercises and ensemble work
    • Explore yourself as a person and how you relate to the world
    • Improve your self-confidence and presenting skills
    • Understand how to use your own experiences to develop a character
    • Vital techniques that all actors use, including voice and body awareness
    • Work on scenes from a play or film

    The drama course is spread over 6 or 8 weekly sessions of 2 hours each. We keep group sizes small in order for the facilitator to give you a lot of individual feedback to encourage an intimate, friendly, and fun atmosphere in which you can learn and grow.
