As an individual

Do something different and have fun. Adult acting workshops held throughout the year in Cardiff. Our workshops provide practical training opportunities for anybody wishing to develop their performance ability. The programme has been developed over the past ten years and constantly evolves to make sure you have all the tools as a modern performer.

These workshops are perfect for you if you are an absolute beginner, have some experience of performing or you are returning to rehearsals.

If you are an absolute beginner we recommend you start with 'Discover Acting' and progress through the levels in order. However, if you have some previous experience we will consider you starting with us at a higher level.
