Designed by Roger Evans, The Lir Academy’s Director of Short Courses and delivered by The Lir Academy’s Short Course tutor team these Saturday acting classes will focus on the core elements of acting training delivered at The Lir Academy.

This course is meant as an introduction to what it means to be an Actor it includes elements of the full time course such as voice, movement, improvisation and text-based work whilst also concentrating on fun and play. Creating an environment where we take the work seriously but not ourselves. A place where we build confidence through playfulness, in a safe caring environment where its not only a safe place to fail but a necessary part of what it means to be a good actor.

This course will provide a good foundation to move on to the next level. The primary objective of the 12-14 course is to find the joy in acting and create confidence in the performer through Acting.
