The Training

We have 3 distinct blocks of study. Block 1 & 2 provide the skills and development tools crucial to working as an actor. During Blocks 1 & 2 there are regular opportunities to share work and perform to audiences, Block 3 is our Create season in rep and allows students the opportunity to perform together, to larger audiences, to work with a creative team and to work as a collaborator with support of an Associate Artist and Director, whilst exploring their own artistry.
