All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.

ACTING SUMMER SCHOOL

Our Acting Summer School offers a wide range of acting masterclasses and workshops from screen acting and Shakespeare across five full days of tuition.

SCREEN ACTING SUMMER SCHOOL

Learn about camera technique, casting types, character building, audition technique, monologue and duologue work, and about the industry and getting work in our Screen Acting Simmer school.
