Acting classes are the main activity at Young Actors Theatre that run on weekday evenings and all day at weekends; we hold some of our classes next door to our main building called “Church on the Corner” and at Hargrave Hall in Archway. We also have remote/online classes open to anyone; classes are in English and at GMT times.
Our classes are for learning performance skills, having fun, improving confidence and communication, nurturing creativity and talent and making new friends!
All members that attend regular classes have the chance to be invited to join our agency and the professional classes, but please note class attendance in no way guarantees professional representation.
Every term has a theme that teachers work through, bringing their own individual teaching style.
The theme for this term is “Human Contact.” (Socially distanced of course!) It has been over a year since most of us communicated off-line, and while Zoom and modern technology has served us well during lockdowns, it not quite the same as human interaction in a physical space. So this term we will be looking at verbal and non-verbal communication, body language, tone of voice, status relationships, silent communication, active and affirmative listening, reading feedback and a myriad of other communication nuances that tend to get lost or unreadable via a fibre optic cable. All of this will make you a finer actor, a better communicator and a more confident, expressive and generous human!
