Acting for AllTutor: Paul Whiting
Learn drama and confidence-building skills in a relaxed and friendly environment
Interested in this course? Come along and try a session for free!Acting for All is an ongoing course designed to help anyone and everyone develop drama skills in a relaxed and friendly environment. There are opportunities for performances and the added bonus of a lively social side!
You don't need any previous experience of acting or performance, but acting can be physically and emotionally demanding so you'll need to be prepared to stretch yourself a bit - in every way! But we build up to this gradually.
The course is run by a highly experienced drama and theatre practitioner. A number of specialist guest tutors will also conduct workshops throughout the course on a variety of topics.
There is a focus on the "tools of the actor": the voice, the mind and the body. Weekly sessions consist of enjoyable drama games, improvisations and exercises to get your imagination and creativity going. We start by working together in groups. Then, as confidence grows, we begin to work individually as well. During the third term we will work towards scenes from chosen texts and there are opportunities in July to take part in showcase performances.
