These sessions are for anyone who is serious about learning and serious about improving their skill levels.

Actors will become more confident as professionals and human beings. We go back to basics with in-depth script analysis and exercises from the great teachers such as Stella Adler, Uta Hagen and Sanford Meisner.

If you are new to acting you need these skills; if you have experience then you need to revisit these skills and practice, practice, practice. Keeping each class to 10 students gives you the opportunity to be actively involved in group discussions and have quality time to engage and learn these essential skills within a supportive group environment.

Skills you will develop

  • Script analysis and how to connect with and interpret your text
    • Actioning/Transitive Verbs (Why am I saying what I'm saying?)
    • Objectives and the use of Verbs
    • How to explore and develop internal monologues
    • Who, where, when, why, what and HOW?
  • Public Solitude (A vital and often neglected skill)
  • Listening (Closely linked to Public Solitude)
  • Concentration (Closely related to listening)
  • Simple Improvisation (Text and non text based)

At the start of each term, each student will receive a USB Memory Stick full of invaluable information to assist their work in class.

This includes:

  • relaxation, breathing and diction exercises
  • reading suggestions – plays, acting techniques, health books, etc
  • videos and articles of interest
  • space for individual research throughout the term so all information is stored together

The USB Memory Stick is kept by each student, proving to be a valuable and timeless resource.
