There are schools that offer fun drama, a bit of everything, an exploration of performance in enjoyable and nurturing ways – I teach at them, I direct at them , and they are brilliant at what they do, especially at including everyone and making sure that everyone has a fantastic time.
But what happens when you are that little bit more serious, when you want to focus on acting, when you have talent and potential that needs nurturing – but you don’t want to give up everything else or head off to a London based or full time drama school? When I looked – I couldn’t find the answer…and that’s when this new idea of training was formed.
Let’s create a new school, with a new format, that is going to help develop a new generation of performers. The focus is on acting, however the school wants to support and develop talent and potential across the board for young people and there are further classes that we offer alongside these, recognising the need for these disciplines for all round performers.
Many groups focus on performances – which are great fun, but rehearsals sometimes take so much time out from the learning and development in a session – a bit like football teams that only play matches and don’t learn the skills, flair, or stamina that make them truly winning teams. The Best School of Acting will share their work and deliver performances but the main focus of each class and term will be on the building of skills and talent that can be used in performances and life.
The course will be brilliant for those that love performing and acting, who want to get better at what they do, who study drama or don’t, who want to be actors or who just want to act!
