Acting (Stage & Screen) TAPAS Courses
Acting - From Page to Stage
This five week course is aimed at those who want to develop their acting skills. With a particular focus on listening, receiving and responding using text to change the other. You will explore duologues and scenes from a range of plays to achieve this.
Led by industry professional Charlotte Thompson, this course promises to improve you as an actor and truly engage and respond to others. The course has limited numbers so we can ensure you will get detailed feedback and time for individual tutoring.
ArtsEd and Chiswick Community Drama Group
Did you ever want to act but life took you down another path? Did you once act but you’ve been away from it for some time? Does the smell of the greasepaint draw you to a new adventure? Would you like to rekindle your love of the stage? Want to learn new skills with a group of fellow adventurees?
ArtsEd is known as one of the best Drama Schools in the UK. We want to throw open our doors and share our love of Acting with those who feel the same in Chiswick and the surrounding areas. So if you have performed a little or not at all and want to have a social evening out once a week in a fun and supportive environment then please sign up.
The course will initially last for six weeks (shall we call it our 'First Act'?) meeting every Thursday from 7:30pm-9pm.
The theme will be the plays of Alan Ayckbourn and Alan Bennett
As the group forms we will be asking what playwrights you would like to explore. We want this to be a collaborative process.
So get away from that TV, do something different, socialise, inspire and challenge yourself. Make this time YOUR time.
Acting for Screen - Intermediate
Have you ever wanted to perform in your own film? We can now make film on our phones, making film has become accessible to us all. But what turns your film from looking amateur into something more professional? The answer is the quality of the acting. Give yourself the edge by learning how to perform on camera. If you have a passion for film and TV and have been moved or effected by performances on screen then this course will introduce you to the techniques used by the actors.
The course offers those who have some experience of camera work a detailed and practical development of their acting skills and techniques which can then be used for screen acting. Our experienced tutor will guide you through on-camera acting exercises with instant playback. You will perform a variety of texts on camera to gain the skills to progress.
The course is for a small group only, to ensure that you are offered individual tutoring and have plenty of time in front of the camera.
