Led by some of The Lir Academy’s core teachers, this workshop-based evening course is taught twice weekly over 4 weeks. Each two hour session consists of a physical warm-up followed by workshops in voice, movement, improvisation and acting. The course will cover the key elements of actor training as well as introducing participants to classical and contemporary play texts, using both scenes and speeches to hone your craft. These workshops act as both a taste of drama school training and as a broad introduction to the craft of acting.
