Over the three days, you can have two guaranteed scene slots to work on one scene or the option to observe.

Aside from building your Method, it will incorporate all the important crafts and how we expand the quality and approach of your acting.

All the units are set to reflect the modern environment of the industry and to equip you with the Technique & Craft to unlock your true ability as an actor from your Studio to the Film Set or Stage

Fri-Sun
10-6 pm each day

HOMEWORK

Homework is where you learn to build on the technique of Lee Strasberg and evolve your application into scene work. You only need to attend one Tech & Scene Study class per week for the arch of the classes, but you are welcome to come to all four, there is no extra charge.

Beginning your work from home is to embrace the discipline that acting starts with what you need to do before you get to what you want to do. With self-taping, much now starts at your own home space.  Plus the challenges of the actor are increasingly bringing your creativity & craft to a very technical environment. Homework builds the truth that the first studio is your own which becomes your primary creative space to act from.

Monday 7.30 – 9.30 pm
Tuesday 7.30 – 10 pm
Wednesday 10 – 12 noon
Thursday 10 – 12.30 pm

METHOD ACTING COLLEGE SCHOOL IN LONDON

Method Acting is not just an acting class, it’s a school of craft and the actor’s instrument. Here in our central London acting college, we have an extensive selection of courses and classes (Units) which cover every aspect of the craft of the actor. We want you to immerse yourself in learning in the same way you should immerse yourself in a role and so we’ve created a comprehensive process that can, in the individual units, address the specific acting muscles and expand your methodology, or collectively become an all-embracing acting training.

Choose to grow as a professional actor with our Method Training, as well as additional units of  Voice & Movement, Audition and Self Taping Technique classes. Take individual classes, for a unit of detailed learning, or spread yourself out over the course of a year, to soak up everything that you can. Our flexible timetable and diverse set of teaching units are intended to work around your other demands, so you can maintain and invest in your greater potential.

Since 2002 we have been expanding and adding to our London acting studio working to combine the classical with the more contemporary techniques, the likes of Lee Strasberg. We have fine-tuned a roster of processes and techniques that aid the creative successes of beginners and professionals alike. To build upon your potential and engage each opportunity as it presents itself, both professionally and creatively.

METHOD ACTING INTENSIVE COLLEGE COURSE

As it deals with the totality of your potential as an actor, it is the heart of our program, the mixture of Studio and Online units aims to engage and challenge you as an actor to build upon the creative muscles that can bring real depth to your acting by unlocking a greater flow of your thoughts, impulses & emotion in your work. At the end of the Method Intro Unit, you can expect to have a full and nuanced understanding of Method as an approach to the actor’s craft and the means to take away greater technique and tools to practice, expanding & building your work & career.

Method is all about harnessing the powerful muscle of the unconscious and channeling it into the role or text, this course is specifically designed to aid that journey and ignite those impulses. You could not get the same out of a course that wasn’t this direct and deliberately intense. This course will expand you as an actor and as a person. The Method Intro offers not only an introduction to these tools and talents but through repetition of the technique and scene class sections, it makes it accessible and easy.

VOICE & MOVEMENT

Our workshops are both technical and creative, offering vital and visceral insights into the importance of voice and movement on an actor’s craft. Through strengthening both you can unlock the true power and potential of your acting.

It may seem obvious how important it is to work on projection and voice but there is so much more than just being audible that goes into the work of an actor. Through working on your breath you can open the action and text of a scene in new and exciting ways, through unlocking your diaphragm you can reclaim the power you’ve had to communicate since birth.

We have been in motion since the dawn of time. Starting with your own body, you learn how to explore the character; focusing on stance, flow, and movement this workshop will introduce you to your body in entirely new ways, which will unlock greater flexibility of a richer and more nuanced work with the role in the text.

AUDITION TECHNIQUE

Our audition technique unit are designed to equip you with everything you need to maximise the impact you can have by knowing precisely what to look for. By locking into the deeper material within a script you can extract a more rich performance and you can do this easily by understanding the content and structure.

The aim of the classes is to not only equip you with a clear and defined methodology that can be applied to any audition but build your analytical skills to approach script and text at each step of your work as an actor. That way enhancing your abilities to build a more believable and dynamic character in your work.

That way each time you come into an audition, you are bringing all the work you’ve put into your craft, which comes alive in your acting in that room.

FULL ACTING UNITS, ONLINE & STUDIO

Combining the best of the best into a flexible unit that works for you, this year-long focus offers you time off between each unit to breath, recover and digest, you can return to the next class better equipped and ready to absorb, build and improve upon the previous lessons. That way truly growing as an actor.

The depth of the complementary approaches, opinions, and techniques empowers your craft and technique, in front of the camera or on stage. The ongoing unit of classes, with the spaces between to go away and digests and practice, will evolve your capabilities and creative technique to such a point that your acting will become far more instinctual and creative. It is these abilities alongside your craft and technique that can unlock and more importantly sustain an acting career.

Payment for the year-long course is a big step and we do require you take an intensive method month with us first to assess if we will be a good match. All you need to do is pick up a phone and have a more detailed discussion with us on how to take it to the next stage.
