An actor must be ready to nail anything from improvisation to sight-reading, building a character to script analysis, stage/screen castings to self-tapes – No drama, hit the courses below, sharpen your skills and book those jobs.

the motivation

 

Drama training will enhance your life, no exaggeration. It’s easy to overlook the links between acting and adulting but when you know, you know.

Confidence, respect, perseverance, appreciation, humility, acceptance, interaction, empathy, passion, enunciation, physicality, analysis, interview skills, writing, problem solving – I could fill this page with all the lessons you learn when your drama training begins, but I’m pretty sure you get it.

You are an individual. You decide which course is the best fit for your needs, but in the meantime, check out just some of the examples of how acting coaching helps others.
