The course is designed for students with a passion for acting who wish to work within the industry. We will study the detailed preparation an actor must undertake in order to succeed, exploring and performing different styles of script and performance. We will practice different acting tips/techniques, helping you find your emotional truth as an actor. We will look at the differences in skill between TV and Theatre Acting and look at becoming an all round confident, truthful actor. 

The lessons will be fun and supportive but focussed and your dedication and passion is imperative.
