Introduction to Actor Training

If you're interested in training as an actor and would like to experience LAMDA Life, join us for our Introduction to Actor Training short courses.

About the course

Each day will be made of skills classes and project work. 

With classes in acting, voice, movement and singing, you will get an insight into the core skills of actor training offered at LAMDA. Your tutors will work with the group to create a supportive environment where you can work collaboratively with like-minded individuals. The course is tailored to the cohort's need, so will be adapted to support your collective skill set and interests. 
 
Project directors will work with students every day on a collection of scenes. The combination of skills classes and rehearsals reflect a typical timetable at LAMDA, and the rehearsal project enables you to practice everything you’re learning in your skills classes. The rehearsal process will culminate in a relaxed internal sharing of work on the final day.
