We Train Actors

The two-year full time programme prepares the actors for the theatre, television and film industries, with a solid foundation of technique and an array of tools for beginning the extraordinarily and rewarding journey of being an actor.

As talent and potential are only part of what we look for in a prospective actor; dedication, imagination, awareness, confidence and commitment will also be qualities to test during our rigorous programme.

Programme Overview

The full -time students engage in an intensive regime of physical, emotional and intellectual training, a wholesale cultivation of the skills demanded of a fully rounded actor, getting the opportunity to build a personal technique through an array of core courses.

The current faculty is comprised of top practitioners from Ireland, Great Britain, Europe, Canada, and the United States, who treat each student's creative journey individually.

We also draw upon working relationships with Ireland's professional arts community, including associations with the Gate, Gaiety and Abbey theatres, RTE and Ardmore Film Studios.

First-year consists in andlsquo;learning the language' of acting: inner and outer awareness, performance principles and a full-bodied preparation for physical, intellectual, and emotional growth.

Second year works on andlsquo;speaking the language': strengthen and tune the actor's instrument while maintaining a strong emphasis on performance, and starting presenting the work to directors, casting directors and agents.
