The Actors Centre

Get Into Acting

Our Get Into Acting course is for anyone who is interested in becoming an actor. The course acts as a taster of drama school training, a broad introduction to the craft of acting and acting as a profession.

Get Into Acting is aimed at those currently outside the industry, but will provide a similar level of training as is given to our members.. It course runs regularly throughout the year - each course lasting a month, running over 4 weekends.

Content includes key elements of actor training including voice, movement, character, scene and text work (classical and contemporary), improvisation and audition technique. The course is taught in a way that aims to replicate closely the professional rehearsal room and the self-discipline, creative risk-taking and professional work ethic involved in being a professional actor. All workshops will be taught by tutors from the Actors Centre's regular programme for professional actors.

"I can safely say that this was by far the best acting course I have been on. It was challenging and fulfilling and I enjoyed its very practical focus- I felt that I learnt an awful lot throughout the 4 weeks and would definitely recommend this course." Nick Dowlatshahi
