Introduction to Actor Training Adult Summer School
This 5 week, full-time credit-rated course is designed to introduce you to foundation acting skills.
This five week, full-time credit-rated short course is designed to introduce you to foundation acting skills and prepare you for further vocational training. This intensive course is inspired by content from the first year BA Acting degree programme and students on this introductory course will benefit from a thorough induction to what is expected in a full-time acting programme.
Introduction to Actor Training is the only credit-rated short course of its kind currently on offer in Scotland. Students will have access to all of the facilities and resources which full-time degree programme students use and will be taught by experienced lecturers and theatre professionals
On successful completion of this course, students will have learnt key acting techniques, have a solid foundation of skills to build upon and earned 20 SCQF credits at SCQF level 6.
This course is open to anyone aged 16+ who is considering studying acting at degree level and wants a thorough introduction to basic acting skills.
By the end of the course, students should have:
been introduced to a foundation in realistic acting
developed technical voice and movement skills required of an aspiring actor
developed their understanding of what is required to study acting at degree-level in a conservatoire training
worked with some of the Royal Conservatoire’s most respected acting staff
been assessed on their performance and given critical advice on how to improve
Commitment, focus, energy and professionalism will be expected at all times by the teaching team and your fellow students. In this respect, the experience resembles that of the students on our BA Acting programme and gives you a taste of what life and study is like at drama school.
Please note, the completion of this course does not have any direct articulation with the BA Acting course or any other degree study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
The course will culminate in an informal sharing of work for family and friends on the final day.
