Prerequisite skills

This course is ideal for those with little or no acting experience, providing the chance to explore acting techniques in a playful and practical way, while having fun and learning to be part of an ensemble.


The goal of the course is for the students to experience and discover a living awareness of the human body and voice as expressive instruments, the joy of working in a group and the strength that comes from discovering new things about yourself.

Course description

Using different improvisational techniques, the teacher will pull out your strengths and push you to places that will surprise you!

The course will also be valuable for developing life skills, irrespective of whether you want to pursue acting in a sustained way, amateur or professional. Just the simple act of getting up in front of people each week and trying out something new teaches you a lot about yourself and how you relate to people, and hopefully enables you to strengthen those areas you feel are weak and re-discover talents that have been asleep for a while!

Topics covered include

  • Exploring the use of the voice and body in acting.
  • Finding the playfulness and fun in performing through improvisation.
  • Building confidence for performance.

Continuation possibilities

All of our acting courses offer continuing courses where you can further develop your skills. If you want to learn to sing, we provide courses to help you get started.
