for Kids

The purpose of this course is to provide a safe environment for adults and older students to gain confidence in their ability and to gain a strong understanding of what an honest interaction with audience and character really is. This will be learnt and demonstrated through a variety of exercises and script work.

With the world teaching us to suppress our “bad feelings” and society encouraging us to have a social filter, it is important to have honesty in performance, and in life.

Students will be nurtured in a safe and supportive environment to find the best of themselves for work on stage, screen and in life.

By the end of the course students should be able to confidently communicate an honest character and story to an audience.

This course is most suitable for people who are beginning their acting journey or who want to take the next step from amateur to professional.

Adults and older students (15 years plus)

Acting for Adults
Acting for Adults

 Instead of starting with the script, as an actor would normally do, this workshop begins with the body to build the physicality of a character.

Be bold, be brave and don’t be afraid of making a fool of yourself!

This is an excellent course for beginners through to experienced actors. We will focus on different centres of gravity, observing others movement patterns, inner rhythm, emotional reasoning behind different movement patterns and how that forms a character.


This is a fun workshop with a basis in clowning and laban movement styles.

If you are an actor in need of a tune-up or a beginner heading into your first audition- this workshop is for you.
