The Dorset School of Acting was founded by James Bowden & Laura Roxburgh to bring world class vocational actor training onto the South coast. The philosophy of the school is to nurture and develop students’ talent and create a personalised training tailored to their individual needs. It has now developed it’s own systematic approach to acting, “The Process” which is unique to the school.
James graduated from Rose Bruford in 1994 and has worked regularly as an actor in theatre and TV. His career has been diverse appearing in the original West End cast of "The Beautiful Game", open air Shakespeare, pantomime, repertory theatre, off West End, number one tours, TV and music videos. James has also trained as a teacher for both adults and secondary school students. Recently he has developed his own approach to the art and craft of acting called "The Process" which is a fundamental element of the training at The Dorset School of Acting and will be publishing his book in early 2015. This approach has proven to be extremely successful with his students gaining places in Conservatoire Drama Schools and also actor's agencies.
Laura started performing at the age of six and began her theatrical training in 1988 in local youth theatre. Having trained with the UK's leading vocal coach Mary Hammond, most of Laura's professional work has been in Musical Theatre both touring and off west end including "Grease", "The Little Shop of Horrors" and "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". She has also worked in commercials and TV including ITV's Drama 'Alibi' with Michael Kitchen.
