Act is the oldest and most advanced non-adult course at Evolve. We understand that 13 – 17 is no longer an age where you are happy to be considered a ‘child’, and rightly so. Therefore we challenge the Actors and Actresses in classes training in further technique including audition technique, modern and classical text, movement (Alexander Technique) and practitioner study. The class will give students the opportunity to run dramatic exercises for the whole class, gaining leadership and teaching skills. The productions for this course will require in-class auditions for roles. The course is great for those with a passion for Theatre and also for those who want to go on to drama school and/or pursue a career in Acting and performance.
