Saturday classes are a great introduction into acting as they provide a grounding in all Speech & Drama Subjects. These include; Acting, Poetry speaking, Reading for performance, sight reading, Mime and Improvisation. Students benefit from increased confidence both in performance and socially from learning these key communication skills. Acting skills can be developed further in our Thursday Group Acting class where script work & devised performance are explored in more detail. Individual lessons enable students to focus on specific areas such as Public Speaking, or Classical Acting for Drama School Auditions. All classes offer a variety of LAMDA examination opportunities.
