"ACTING CANNOT BE TAUGHT..."
- Unknown, misinformed Idiot
You've probably heard that before, we certainly have; however it simply isn't true. Much like any other art form, or technical, creative skill, acting requires committed practice and exploration. We can teach you where to pour your focus, and your energy in to when it comes to developing character, exploring text, and connecting with other actors in a space.
Acting is about listening and responding; It sounds simple, but the ability to really listen to another actor and respond honestly and authentically requires a lot of skill and focus.
Acting is a very physical skill. It requires application as opposed to too much discussion and over analysis; from the very beginning we will jump in to the basics of story telling and how we can tell stories in the most genuine way.
The sessions can be booked on a PAY&GO basis or we have a number of different packages available; it is completely up to you to decide which route you would like to take when it comes to booking your sessions. It is important to remember, however, that consistency is key when it comes to developing a new skill; so bare this in mind if you choose the PAY&GO option.
WHAT WE WILL COVER IN YOUR SESSIONS...
During the course of your Acting Coaching, we will explore numerous techniques and exercises in order to make it easier to engage with the art form:
Monologue/ Duologue/ Scene Study
Shakespeare verse & prose
Audition Support & Techniques
HOW LONG SHOULD I HAVE LESSONS?
This is a question that can only be answered by you and your coach once you have been working together for a little while. In order to maintain your skills, you require consistency over a long period of time; even our coaches still have lessons, as it is important to stay on top of your skill once you have achieved significant progress or even when you feel like you may have achieved your goal. When you sign up for lessons with us, you are not signing any contracts or committing yourself to any formal agreements. You can choose how frequently you work with your coach and for how long you wish to take part in your lessons. You may find that after a while you wish to reduce the frequency of lessons once you have grasped the various techniques, or you may find you wish to increase the frequency in order to develop further. Your coach will always advise the best course of action to take when it comes to lesson frequency and duration and will always be at the end of an email to answer any questions or queries you may have regarding this.
