Looking to develop your ability to act?
Ever heard the phrase: "Acting cannot be taught"?
Our Coaches are all fully trained and experienced actors and can therefore provide you with the necessary techniques and understanding to access your ability to connect with a character and develop your ability to tell a story.
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
During the course of your Acting Coaching, we will explore numerous techniques and exercises in order to make it easier to really listen and respond. These exercises include:
Monologue/ Duologue & Soliloquy work
HOW LONG DO I NEED 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.
