Drama, Theatre, Performance, the fundamentals of Acting provide great skills for life. Acting is a fundamental skill that expresses each person’s desire to play, it gives us the opportunity to expand spontaneity and creativity as well as increasing confidence and presentation. At the Acting and Communication Academy our classes range from beginner through to ATCL Diploma level. Students work to develop a range of skills vocally and physically, aiding them in life outside of the classroom or preparing them to enter the professional world of acting, teaching or speaking. Acting is not only a platform for improvement in performance and presentation, but expands our minds curiosity, exploration and imagination. We provide classes across the areas of Speech and Drama, Performance Arts and Musical Theatre in correlation with the internationally recognised Trinity Guildhall London syllabus.
Speech and Drama under the Trinity Guildhall Syllabus encourages students to explore literature throughout history through performance. It is different to other syllabuses as Trinity is internationally recognised and encourages a student to give authentic interpretations and performance, preparing one for professional acting whilst also encouraging genuine presentation skills across all areas. The Acting and Communication Academy offers both exam and non-exam classes, whichever path you choose will be one full of fun and excitement as students acquire skills and memories that will stay with them for life.
Performance Arts is great for those with creative minds, an interest in writing and devising, and especially those with a wide variety of skills whether they be in acting, singing, film making, writing, set design and more.
