The Gap

About the Course

The GAP is for those serious about an acting career. It’s not just about getting through school, it’s about getting you into the industry. 

When you graduate you will be equipped with technical skills, resilience, practical industry application and business knowledge to launch your career. Graduates will have a guaranteed process into performance. 

Students are guided through a deep exploration, building fundamentals and evolving with the confidence to comfortably bring their own voice and story to their characters and their craft. This course is immersive and hands on and at the end you will have established your individual brand ready to meet the industry. 

How To Apply And Audition
