City Acting Character has been designed as a follow on from City Acting for Fun for Beginners but is open to anyone who has completed an equivalent course or who feels they already have basic experience as a performer. The classes run weekly for 7 weeks, 7-9pm.
* Waterloo, SE1 - every Monday from 4 March until 15 April, 7-9pm
Fees: 7 weeks course £185
This course gives you the chance to develop a character through an extensive rehearsal period, and to study in depth rich and well-written scenes from famous plays.
Like all City Acting courses and workshops, these classes are extremely beneficial for anyone who would like to improve their communication skills and become more aware of the way they present themselves at work and in their daily life.
Over the 7 week course you will be guided through the process of building a unique character physically and emotionally and, by being introduced to a new technique each week, really get the chance to immerse yourself in the character and the world of the play.
The drama course is spread over 7 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.
