Acting Technique for Young Teens

About the Course

Throughout 2017, students  will develop performance skills and apply them to new and exciting situations.

We will use comprehensive drama games to learn to work with our instinct and intuition.
We will learn about accents, work on audition acting technique, review screen work and study the acting tips of top international drama coaches. We will learn about the difference between stage and screen acting and get the opportunity to put these both into practice.

Speech and voice techniques will  to be a part of our course, as will fun, confidence-building, imagination and expression!
