Looking for fun acting classes in London?

Have you ever wanted to act? Do you find yourself watching your favourite movie over and over and wondering what it would be like to play that part? This 12-week acting course will teach you the fundamentals of acting. You will build up a toolkit of acting skills enabling you to unlock character, help spontaneity and free your inner performer from inhibition. We strongly believe in the value acting classes provide for improving self-confidence and life skills.

Anyone who has ever acted will tell you, there is no greater feeling than taking to the stage in a persona wholly of your own. There is nothing as rewarding as holding the audiences’ hearts in your hand and feeling their collective pulse quicken as the drama unfolds. There is nothing like acting and no better time to try it than now.
