Why you should choose this Drama School Preparation Course?

Our Drama School Preparation Foundation Acting Course is aimed at preparing you for further professional training. Our intensive one-year foundation acting course (HNC Acting) was created specifically to prepare you to move onwards to professional training courses at a higher level. 

This course is aimed at students who have already left school (or you are about to leave) and wish to go to drama school but as yet, lack experience, skills, knowledge or are too young to apply at the present time. 

Our course aims to empower you to develop the skills, knowledge and experience to make you into the type of candidate that drama schools accept. Over the years, we've trained hundreds of drama school applicants privately. Now we're turning all of that knowledge and experience into a Foundation Acting course.
