Introduction to Acting
The Lir Academy’s Introduction to Acting course is perfect for those who are both inquisitive about a future career in acting and those who simply want to challenge themselves by stretching their creative muscles.
Led by some of The Lir Academy’s core teachers, this workshop-based evening course is taught over 10 weeks. Each two and a half hour session consists of a physical warm-up followed by a voice or movement/improvisation class and culminates with a 90 minute acting workshop. The course will cover key elements of actor training including Voice, Movement and Improvisation, but will also introduce participants to classical and contemporary play texts, using both scenes and monologues to hone your craft. These workshops act as both a taste of drama school training and as a broad and basic introduction to the craft of acting.
