Our Acting Diploma Programmes

In all 3 programs, we offer access to essential, cutting-edge acting techniques throughout the one year training season. The teaching mentors for all of our core technique classes are seasoned professional teachers who have all taught around the world, and who are all still active as performers.

Significantly, all 3 programs are designed to allow training actors to also consider some job/employment activity, and/or university study:

*Classes for The One Year Full Time Professional Acting Diploma Programme are more time intensive, meeting three times weekly during evenings, and/or during weekend hours; this program asks for more rehearsal hours for the program performance goals. However, many actors in the past have also been able to carry some employment hours at the same time.

*Classes for the Two Year Part Time Professional Diploma Programme meet two times a week for every month of training. There are some additional rehearsal hours urged/expected for performance projects tied to this program.

*Classes for the International Foundational Diploma Programme meet two times weekly. This program offers actors at the beginning of their journey a full season to build a solid technique foundation while possibly carrying employment and/or University at the same time.

Finally, all of our Diploma acting programs are conducted on a “pay as you go” basis. The full fee for an entire training season (see below) will be broken into 5 payments. You only need to pay a flat fee for your program classes taken during each term. 5 terms, 5 payments. To secure your place in any of the programs, we will ask that candidates for each program submit their 1st payment ahead of time as a deposit on your commitment to follow one of the 3 diploma programmes.
