    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. It is also for all of us who want to learn to have less fear around social occasions or meeting new people, as well as how to manage our nerves when faced with revealing our authentic selves and the sense of shame that can accompany that. 

    Run by very supportive and engaging tutors, the course will help you build cidence 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.

    It's also a great way to meet and hang out with new friends!

    • 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, both socially and professionally
    • 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 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.
