Our Approach

The City Academy Acting Department takes what we like to call a ‘rainbow’ approach in that we do not adhere to just one school of thought on technique. You will experience an insight into various styles such as Method, Stanislavski, Meisner and Augusto Boal. Our acting coaches are all working, professional actors and directors who bring to bear their own expertise. This enables a full and 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 enhancing communication - learning about yourself and how you relate to others - enabling you to gain confidence and explore your imagination and creativity.

Our acting courses are planned to offer a progression through the levels of Beginners, Improvers to Advanced. You will receive guidance from your acting coach but in general we recommend that students take each level twice, with different teachers, before progressing to the next level. You will not repeat any content and will be challenged with new skills and acting techniques. 

A few words from our students

Hear from our students and tutors...

A collection of our fantastic students and tutors told us why they love acting. 

"It’s really healthy to laugh at yourself. To be a clown is to be a beautiful idiot and to take away all the masks we put on ourselves to get through life, it's about getting to the core of what makes us individual and beautiful."

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.
