A weekend of acting and improvisation for everyone; no experience needed.
Join us for a weekend of acting and improv theatre training with 4 of our performing arts tutors. Over the period of the weekend our tutors will host a series of workshops that will introduce you to a wide range of skills in a fun and relaxed environment.
Some of the acting and improvisation techniques that will be covered are: learning how to make a scene up on the spot; how to act in a scene; being truthful in the moment; how to let go of your fear and how to skilfully be spontaneous.
