Experience Opportunity

Young Actors’ Summer School

The DSL Young Actors Summer School is an exciting new course which covers core acting skills for 16- to 18-year-olds.

Whether you are looking to develop a new skill outside of school or are considering full-time training, you will be provided with an exciting and diverse range of classes led by highly experienced professional practitioners.

The course covers many aspects of actor training, including stage, screen, audio and movement. By the end of the course, you can expect to be more confident in your use of your body and voice for performance, enjoy interpreting text and understand ways to make bold character choices. Emphasis is given to audition technique, benefiting those applying to full-time drama schools.

This course has been designed in such a way that participants may book for just one week OR both. However, if you have little or no previous experience, we recommend that you do both weeks of the course to get the most benefit.

To ensure each student receives suitable individual attention, we limit the places to 14.  These are available on a first come first served basis. Applications will close when all places are filled.

Course Length: 5 to 9 August and/or 12 to 16 August
