This course is an exciting opportunity to experience intensive Acting training. You will enjoy the outstanding facilities and reputation of Rose Bruford College. It provides excellent preparation for students intending to apply to UK drama schools, further education colleges or universities, or wishing to build on prior experience.

This intensive, two-week introductory programme develops your natural acting skills with classes in movement, voice and general acting as well as concentrating on audition technique, musical theatre and devising within an ensemble. Focusing on two plays – one classical and one contemporary – each week culminates in a performance in front of an invited audience.

Course content

You will receive an introduction to conservatoire level performance training that will cover:

Voice
Your voice is an important tool as an actor and its care and development is a life-long pursuit. You will investigate elements of the vocal progression characteristic of conservatoire and drama school voice training.

Movement
The focus of the movement work is on self-awareness, physical freedom and an understanding of the body as the physical instrument of the actor.

Acting
Acting classes will initially introduce basic principles through practical exercises that ask students initially to engage imaginatively and responsively without reference to a text.

You will be taught and directed by leading industry professionals and permanent members of Rose Bruford College’s faculty.
