Attila trained at the City Lit in London and went on to perform on the fringe in London and Edinburgh. He had parts on TV for the BBC and Channel 4 as well as extra work for a number of films. Having returned to university to study counselling, his aim is to use the skills he learned as an actor on stage and in classes to help others develop the abilities needed to build their confidence. Attila is also one of the LAMDA tutors at the award-winning Anna Fiorentini Theatre & Film School.

Stage & the City’s acting classes are ideal if you want to boost your confidence and develop presentation skills for either personal or career development. Discover the buzz actors feel every time they go on stage, learn how to let yourself become other people and explore. During our courses, you will build up a tool-kit of performance skills enabling you to unlock character, help spontaneity and free your inner performer from inhibition. We strongly believe in the value acting classes provide for improving self-confidence and life skills.

On a Thursday evening we run two courses that complement each other: 

Improvising / Devising followed by Scene Study.

During the Improvising / Devising workshops we explore the instant and primal medium of improvisation. Learn to think and create on the fly, build your confidence and hone your story telling skills.

In the later class, Scene Study, we delve into the elements which make characters from a script work. We’ll follow a script from page to stage or screen and find out what it takes to bring it to life.
