Our Approach


Part of our summer schools programme, our Five Day Foundation Acting Course does not adhere to just one school of thought on technique. You will experience various styles such as Method, Stanislavski and Meisner. Our acting coaches are all working, professional actors and directors who bring their own expertise and experience to classes giving you a full and well-rounded approach allowing you to establish effective techniques that work for you as an individual.

We firmly believe in the value of Acting and Drama Courses for developing life skills, irrespective of whether you want to pursue acting in a sustained way. Acting techniques are transferable to your working and social life enabling you to gain confidence and explore your imagination and creativity.

WHO CAN JOIN THIS COURSE?


This course is designed for Beginners and those with a little experience of acting or drama classes. It is formulated to allow students a progression in building skills and self-confidence. Many people search for an opportunity to explore this side of their persona and find it an invigorating and exhilarating experience. The course is for those aged 18 years and older. There is no maximum age, no experience is necessary and no course preparation is required.

At City Academy we are proud of our wide age range of participants. Please see our Frequently Asked Questions, or email City Academy’s Head of Acting, Lotte Johnson, with any questions or call our Student Services team on 020 7042 8833.

 
 

Course testimonial: Savraj


My impression of the course was how good it was for me: the word I have been using to describe it to my family and friends is that I feel ‘revitalised’ on a personal level. The course was more than I expected, the variation in classes is exactly what I was looking for.
