Acting Intensive - 4 Weeks

Acting Intensive - 4 Weeks

Our Acting Intensive – 4 week course offers a grounding in core acting techniques for all levels of ability and culiminates in an end of course showcase. Over the course of 4 weeks you’ll study a range of theatre practioners, be trained by a small cohort of specialist industry tutors who will get to know you, provide personalised feedback in a group setting and with you as you rehearse for your final showcase in the final week.

Our Approach

The Acting Intensive - 4 week course is a rich, rewarding and intensive experience that will challenge and shape you as a performer. Working closely with your fellow actors you will form an acting troupe. Each element of the program is taught by expert teachers, professional actors and theatre directors.

The course will lay the foundation for skills needed to work as part of an ensemble, approach text and perform on stage with confidence. Voice and movement classes will train you to master your faculties and find freedom in your speech and physicality. 

Our multi-disciplinary approach means that you’ll study practitioners including Sanford Meisner, Konstantin Stanislavski, Uta Hagen, Stella Adler and Jacques Lecoq. This will enable you to find your own route to a truthful and impactful performance. 

You’ll be equipped with the tools needed to confidently approach any text with truthful and believable actions. 

Actors will be able to learn and apply these techniques to Modern scenes that will be performed in the final week.
