Whether you're an absolute beginner or want to build on your existing experience in a friendly and creative environment, our 10 week, Creative Drama training course at Birmingham School of Acting offers a convenient, informal space to improve as an actor.
The emphasis of this drama course is for you to have fun and learn new skills in a relaxed but challenging atmosphere. This course takes place on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm – 9:30pm.
The essence of drama is the play and students “working” on Tuesday evenings will be rediscovering exactly how to do that.
The key components of the course are:
- Reading and memory skills
- Physical characterisation – including clown, mime and mask skills
- Vocal skills – spoken and sung
- Working in small and large groups to tell a story – much of this work may be devised
- Telling stories from texts both ancient and modern – Ancient Greece to yesterday
- Learning to improvise.
Students are encouraged to set their own learning agenda in order to achieve personal goals and establish their own working practice. We endeavour to get mix the groups each term and to persuade students to experience as many different approaches to performance as possible.
Students may also be offered the opportunity to study across a broad syllabus for external examinations in performance and communication skills.
