Course overview

As an actor, are there things that hold you back in the rehearsal room or in performance?

Through exploration of body and voice, this course will help you to learn and practice skills to build confidence, help you to be more present, and access your creativity in new and exciting ways. Working practically, you will be led through a series of exercises and explorations designed to help you free your body and voice, promoting greater confidence in the space and deeper connection to text.

Led by RADA tutors Angela Gasparetto (Movement) & Suzanne West (Voice).
