The Lir Academy’s Introduction to Acting course is perfect for those who are both inquisitive about a future career in acting and those who simply want to challenge themselves by stretching their creative muscles.
Led by some of The Lir Academy’s core teachers, this workshop-based evening course is taught over 10 weeks. Each two and a half hour session consists of a physical warm-up followed by a voice or movement/improvisation class and culminates with a 90 minute acting workshop. The course will cover key elements of actor training including Voice, Movement and Improvisation, but will also introduce participants to classical and contemporary play texts, using both scenes and monologues to hone your craft. These workshops act as both a taste of drama school training and as a broad and basic introduction to the craft of acting.
While our intention is that all short courses take place in person at The Lir Academy; the health and safety of our staff and short course students is always our main priority. Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, delivering short courses in person is not always possible and in these circumstances, all short courses suitable for adaptation will be delivered online via Zoom including Introduction to Acting.
Please note that, as per our Cancellation Policy, no refunds or offers of deferral will be issued in the event of any short course moving online due to Covid-19 restrictions.
