Beginners Acting (Level 1) is a fun, gentle introduction to acting, improvisation and a little voice work. Nothing scary. You will learn basic principles of acting and the emphasis is on fun and getting out of your comfort zone. The group is usually comprised of a good mix of ages ranging from 20s up to 60s and everyone gets on like a house on fire! We usually go for a drink after the 3rd class and the last night of the course. If this seems like it is up your alley you can guarantee your place now.

  1. Hi,
    I’m interested in your beginners acting class but would just like some more information on class content. I recently attended a youth drama group which concentrated on games like movement to music, be an inanimate object, etc..without learning about acting techniques or improving skills. I hope your class can provide the relaxed learning environment I’m looking for.
    Thanks in advance,
