The skills learned through actor training can benefit everyone. Acting can help one overcome their inhibitions and build a strong sense of confidence whilst performing and that will carry over everyday life. Our acting courses focus on the discipline of acting which includes working on voice, creativity, Imagination and physicality. The ultimate aim is for our students to have the skill set to create believable true performances.
Students will be taught by professional actors from the United Kingdom who will share their industry experiences and knowledge. All CentreStage Students will be invited to take LAMDA Examinations twice a year but the exams are not compulsory.
