All of the acting courses are short, part-time and professionally based. All of our courses run regularly throughout the year, and they are open to anyone over the age of 18.

Our trainers are established, professional actors. All are very experienced in running acting courses and business training.

Our Philosophy:

Our main philosophy with all our training is to show every participant a good time. You should always enjoy what you're doing if you really want to learn something new and develop yourself.  Each time we run a course, it is always very different as the core of the work is created around the participants, so no one course is ever the same. The actors and act up do however have a structured outline for each course;  the environment is designed and then it's up to the participants to be brave and throw themselves in. No one has ever regretted the decision.

As we offer a variety of different courses, it is important for you, and us, that you enrol on the course that is best suited to your requirements.
