The Beginning

About the Course

Designed to find the actor in YOU! 

The Beginning is an Acting Fundamentals course, with special insight into the three main spheres of acting training (Characterisation, Voice and Movement), as well as the discipline of performance. These classes:

  • will help students find a “process into performance” that best suits them and their acting style.
  • outline systematic processes for rehearsing, by looking at the works of theatre practitioners across the ages, and
  • suggest ways of coping with anxiety and self-doubt in any performance situation.

The course is open to anyone with an interest in acting, and would like to explore acting fundamentals in a fun and supportive environment.

This is a great class to uncover your hidden talent, start a hobby or pick-up from where you left drama class in highschool!

No previous experience necessary, simply  apply now and get started.

Is this course for me?

The Beginning is a great all-round introduction to acting, covering an introduction to all the fundamentals that an actor needs. 

Some people enjoy acting as a hobby but still want that professional training and coaching, others may be trying it out for the first time and will use these classes to establish the basics before graduating to more formal training. Maybe the last time you tried acting was at highschool! 

Whatever your stage, there is always something new to learn and friends to be made. It’s also a great introduction to The Actors’ Hub approach and its thriving community of actors and coaches.
