Acting Classes - Your Acting Career (Re)Starts Here

Step Six

Once the basic fundamental tools of the Mindset Acting Technique are in place, students are encouraged to develop their skills, knowledge and experience in dramatic and comedic improvisations.

Successful completion of Step 5 is a pre-requisite of joining Step 6.

The course lasts for two terms and results in an informal studio-based sharing of dramatic improv and a public comedy performance. 

This Step is split into two sections: 

In Dramatic Improvisation, you will learn to use the tools of the Mindset Technique to develop powerful and moving improvised drama scenes. 

In Comedic Improvisation, you will be challenged to create a hilarious 'Armando' comedy show completely from scratch. 

Each STEP 6 course lasts for 8 weeks with 2 hours of class per week. Students are expected to spend 2 terms in Step 6 before moving on to STEP 7. You can register and pay for a class in THREE ways. You can pay in cash or by card at the Studio in advance, you can call the studio and make a payment by telephone, or you can purchase your place on the course below via Paypal (you do not need a Paypal account).

Students must complete both elements (Comedic/Dramatic) before moving onto Step 7. 

what you'll learn
  • employ your current Mindset tools to create powerful improvised scenes (great for working in film)
  • challenge your fear of failure in comedy improvised scenes that teach you to accept and build from your team-mates and play at the top of your intelligence under the pressure of performance 
  • manage the pressure of the moment to perform under pressure with success
  • to explore scenes that push your emotional boundaries
  • get comfortable being uncomfortable in front of an audience
  • develop your ability to think quickly on your feet
  • create scenes completely from scratch

The coaches offer practical solutions to issues we frequently face as actors. Whether you're at the beginning of your journey or perhaps wanting to freshen up on certain aspects, the studio offers something for everyone. There is always a lesson to be learned."
