Practical Vs Theory
This exciting course accredited by the University of the Arts London has been designed to develop your professional skills in acting and provide you with essential industry experience, knowledge and skills to further develop as an acting practitioner.
A cross-level programme which focuses on the skills required to progress onto further training as an Actor, whilst also developing general performing arts skills, run by the Eastern School of Performing Arts (ESPA). Gain an excellent grounding to become a versatile performer and develop your individuality and performance skills to allow you to progress on to drama schools, university and employment.
Across the programme you will participate in a wide variety of projects that introduce you to varied styles, genres and methodologies. With a focus on development of the practical skills required, you will explore areas such as devising, classical text, contemporary text, movement and voice. The projects will develop your skills within acting styles such as naturalism, epic, surrealism and physical theatre, through scripted and devised projects.
This course is aimed at students who wish to gain more experience working in a professional setting before auditioning for top drama schools or professional work. This course is unique in that it is fully funded for anyone who is 18 to 19 years old at the time of enrolment (Advanced Learner Loans are available for anyone 19+).
ESPA provides industry-experienced tutors for all their courses, enabling students to develop skills required for their next steps. The course is highly vocational and you will spend your days in the studio with highly experienced industry professionals.
The tutors are great and give you all the support and skills you need to become a well-rounded performer. I’m now studying at LIPA (The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts).
