FREE Taster Session

When: Saturday September 6th 2008. 2.00pm - 5.00pm
Where: Platform 1, Market House, Chapter Arts Centre, Canton, Cardiff
Cost: Absolutely Free!

This is a free workshop for anyone over 18 who fancies flexing their acting muscles or wants to know a bit more about the type of training we offer before committing to a ten week course. However, there is no obligation whatsoever to enroll on another course. There’ll be plenty of excercises, games, group and individual work packed into the three hours. The work will be set around the loose theme of ‘Choices and Timing’ and is suitable whether you’re a complete novice or have some acting experience. Places are limited to a maximum of 16, and are offered on a first come, first served basis.

Beginners’ Acting Course

When: Every Saturday for 10 weeks - October 4th - December 6th 2008. 10.00am - 12.00noon
Where: Platform 1, Market House, Chapter Arts Centre, Canton, Cardiff
Cost: £100

If you are over 18 and have always wanted to act, but you're not sure whether you have the talent, or the nerve to give it a go, then this course will probably be exactly what you're looking for. The emphasis is on plenty of practical work, with lots of useable advice, tips and feedback throughout the weeks. We'll work with and without text, help you loose your self-consciousness and awkwardness, build your dramatic awareness and work to uncover your innate creativity. You don't need any previous acting experience, just enthusiasm and willingness to learn new skills.

Improvers’ Acting Course

When: Every Saturday for 10 weeks - October 4th - December 6th 2008. 1.00pm - 3.00pm
Where: Platform 1, Market House, Chapter Arts Centre, Canton, Cardiff
Cost: £100

This course is suitable for anyone over 18 who already has some acting experience. This may include being in a play in the last 2 years (including amateur), and/or having previous drama training (such as youth theatre, college, university or Gest Introduction course). The course will systematically cover many of the elements that go into making truthful and captivating performances, using a variety of texts, exercises and approaches and building on your current skills and experience. As always, the course will respond directly to learners' needs and constructive individual and group feedback will be an instrinsic part of the content.
