Here at The Centre Stage Academy we offer a range of lessons to suit all individual needs. Developing vocal skills and self-confidence, key components of success, will help you improve both your speech and your drama.
Drama gives you confidence in yourself and your abilities. It is an excellent art form and means of communication.
Lessons are for experienced performers, those new to drama, and also novices, who have the desire to improve their speech, learn new skills and improve their confidence.
You can choose to take lessons as a course or, if your need is more short-term, a one-off session. Regardless of whether you wish to improve your presentation skills or simply wish to speak with more clarity and confidence, we are able to tailor a course to suit your specific needs.
Our sessions will be interactive, designed to engage and motivate whilst being tailored to the needs of each individual.
Lessons are devised to suit the individual, depending on their aims and ambitions, and can cover any number of topics and techniques, including the following:
• Voice enhancement and making your voice more interesting for the listener
• Acting skills
• Reading aloud
• Sight reading of poetry, prose and script work
• Appreciation of literature
• Script work using different texts
• Preparing for an audition
• Theory of speech
Our aim is to enable you to deliver a performance of the highest standard. We can work with your chosen pieces and give you feedback, or we can help choose pieces suited to your particular style and ability.
Our sessions can also be targeted towards Qualifications if you wish.
