During our beginners acting classes, 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: 

Improvisation/Devising followed by Working with Scripts

During the Improvising / Devising classes 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.
