What’s it all about – Adult Acting Classes

If you’re thinking of acting for fun or to rekindle a life-long passion or youthful dream, this adult theatre course is for you. This class will introduce you to techniques that will help you gain confidence and feel more comfortable in front of an audience, including breathing, relaxation, concentration and more.

Absolute Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Classes are available.

In our acting classes, you will work both on improvisation and from text, explore your stage presence, and begin to master your voice and movements. By the end of the course, you will have learned many of the basic skills that actors use on a daily basis in theatre, film and television.

We keep group sizes small in order for the facilitator to give you a lot of individual feedback and to encourage an intimate, friendly and fun atmosphere in which you can learn and grow.

No experience is necessary but a willingness to participate and enjoy yourself is a MUST!

Course content includes: voice, stagecraft and presentation, improvisation, movement, monologues, auditions, etc.

Audition Preparation

If you’re seeking a career in the limelight, auditions are a major part of the industry for entry into third level training or indeed for professional shows. Individual private sessions are available to ensure you are fully prepped for your audition.

This course will offer a range of private one on one classes giving an invaluable grounding in vital skills required for auditions and ongoing training. On completing the course participants will be armed for auditions with a polished classical and contemporary speech, as well as tips and techniques to remain relaxed and confident in audition situations.

General audition presentation, delivery, attitude and focus will be covered and the course will end with a mock audition session for drama school to practice the skills learned during the course. Experience in acting whilst not a necessity would be beneficial.
