A few words from our students

I learned a lot within a short time and it has helped me with what I thought was an impossible task, to improve my confidence as well as get a good insight into on screen acting from amazing tutor,

Deanna

Tutor was engaging and encouraging - really made everyone feel comfortable no matter their level of experience. Venue was professional and neutral therefore easy to get into the space and not feel intimidated. Great class!!

Eva

A really fun course for people seeking a beginner’s screen acting course. Learnt some very good acting techniques. I’ll definitely recommend city academy to not only friends but to anyone who are interested in acting or to anyone who are looking to build their confidence as this course helped me a lot with that.

Anna

Miranda was incredibly supportive and all the feedback was given in a very constructive way. She offered a variety of tools and exercises that when suggested might have felt unnecessary but when tried they proved to make an incredible impact on the improvement of the performance.

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.

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