Train With Us: Short Courses
You might think summer would be a quiet time here at LAMDA; in fact, it’s our busiest time of the year! Each year, over 300 students join us on our LAMDA Short Courses. Ranging from two to eight weeks long and open to those aged 16, 17 and 18 or older (depending on the course), there’s something for everyone!
Hear more about what our 2017 summer short course students had to say about their time training with us, or follow the link at the end of this article to explore our summer 2018 courses in detail.
“Every single teacher I came across at LAMDA presented me with "golden nuggets" of information and wisdom with regards to approaching/communicating Shakespearean and Jacobean text. All that has been shared with me and taught to me continues to live and grow within my practice and training as an actor. I feel fuller as an artist - more passionate, more confident, and above all, more prepared.”
Liz, Shakespeare Summer School student
“The Shakespeare Short Course surpassed my high expectations. I didn't know it was possible to learn so much in four weeks!”
Elle, Shakespeare Short Course student
“I've never felt so good in my life. Those three weeks have been the best three weeks of my life, where I was completely myself every single day, I was always happy and I loved what I was doing. I am so grateful to LAMDA and every single person in it.”
Bianca, English Communication Skills through Drama student
“I met an amazing group of people who shared the same passion as me and who I still keep in contact with even though the course is over.”
Carlota, Audition Technique student
“These two mesmerising weeks have been the ultimate confirmation that my future belongs to theatre: next year I'm definitely going to apply for a longer course in order to integrate my studies and to refine my craft. I believe that LAMDA provides the perfect learning environment and the safest artistic setting to freely explore your possibilities and to fully unlock your potential as an actor.”
Leonardo, Introduction to Drama School student
“I believe even in my short time at LAMDA that my skills as an actor have developed wildly beyond anything that I thought I was going to come out with. I knew that it was going to be a learning experience, but between the diverse course content and the instructors themselves, I was able to leave after two weeks with a fully-rounded knowledge of the different aspects of screen acting.”
Anonymous, Introduction to Screen Acting student
