There are many reasons to enrol on a summer course, whatever your age, experience and field of study. There's an array of courses out there, so if you're looking to experience something new, or brush up on a skill in a refresher course, you'll find a class suited to you in our special Summer School report.
If you're serious about a career in the industry and are planning on auditioning for drama school in the future, then a short course is the perfect way of sampling the experience. You may be looking to get help with audition technique or perhaps you're interested in sampling a specific area of study at your preferred drama school. Most drama schools now offer summer programmes with courses that either generally scratch the surface, or others that are focused intensively on a specific branch of learning.
You will be working with experienced theatre professionals and course tutors who are enormously skilled, who will require a commitment to the intensive course as though you were a full time student. In return they will hone your existing abilities and guide you in areas that need attention. It's also the perfect opportunity for you to determine whether the course is something you want to pursue or not.
You may be an experienced performer already, but feel there's a certain area of skill you need to brush up on, such as acting for camera or Shakespeare. There may even be a particular technique or practitioner you wish to learn more about.
Or you may well just be looking to have a fun and exciting summer to let off some steam, whatever your taste you'll find all types here.
Enrol on a course with passion and bags of energy, be brave and be open to everything that is thrown at you, and you're sure to have an incredible summer break.
