Professional Acting Course


2-Year Intensive Part-Time Acting Course


A Practical Course for Practical People


The aim of the Brighton Academy Acting Course is to offer the fullest training over two years as is possible in part-time hours.
It is designed specifically for those who are funding themselves and want the thoroughness of a full time training but are not ready or able to give up their day- jobs just yet.


What Makes Our Course Different?


The Course is intensive. It is structured over a four term year. Thus the total course time is eight terms. This allows us more time to include those aspects of training which can sometimes be ignored or merely glanced at on other part-time courses.


The Course


Currently each term is timetabled to run over an average of ten weeks, each week consisting of 20 teaching hours involving four weekday evenings and one w/e day.
The training includes classes in: Acting (Rehearsal and Skills); Voice (Technique, Accent, Text); Movement (Dance, Fitness, Mime/Mask, Animal Study, Stage Combat); Singing (Technique, Repertoire, Acting through Song); Texts and Contexts; Professional Preparation.
To begin with the timetable is weighted towards class and the acquisition and development of core skills, with rehearsal taking up approximately one quarter of the available time. As the course progresses, however, the balance of the timetable shifts to favour rehearsal time until, in the final two terms, it is almost entirely weighted towards rehearsal and performance for a Public Repertory Season, including a Fringe run in Brighton and a London Showcase.


The course is for people aged 18 and over (no upper age limit) and admission is by audition only.
