Online 10-week Acting Course Level I  Image
Learn to Act, Speak and Live with Confidence!

The Acting Lab has been running quality acting courses in Dundee since 2015 and is now working both online and off*. We are back in person for those in our local area but still running this popular online course for those further afield and just for anyone who can't get to our in-person classes for any reason. This incredible, empowering 10-week course is open to complete beginners and to experienced actors looking to refresh their skills or work with new techniques. We use a blend of professional techniques and practices from British theatre and American film acting training to develop a solid foundation for acting with truth, emotion, imagination and spontaneity. The classes are fun and challenging and take place in a structured and supportive environment. (Age 16 years plus).

This is a fully interactive course (not a webinar). You will be in a small group of a maximum of 12 people and there will be a level of individual attention you won't get on many other online courses.

We will do warm-ups, which will involve exercises to improve your vocal, movement and listening skills, spatial awareness, concentration, relaxation and stage presence. We will work with improvisations and will learn about the basics of stagecraft. There will also be exploration and development of character in various ways using, for example, scene analysis, hot seating and creating objectives. It's like a mini-version of drama school (and that means homework - some preparation for classes will be assigned every week).

You will have the chance to work with various partners on simple scripted scenes then do more in-depth work with a chosen partner by developing a scene from a theatre play or film script, or do a monologue if you prefer to work on your own.

There will be an exciting opportunity to perform scenes for each other in the last class.
