Recent Feedback from students
Below are just a few comments from people that have attended the Workshop when asked for their feedback or what they particularly liked about their two week experience.
I loved being back in a workshop environment and really enjoyed the text and devising process. I wanted to regain confidence as I haven't acted for a few years and it helped me achieve this.
All the teachers were great. I really liked how each session seemed to build on the last. I really felt that at the end of the workshop that I had improved and my attitude to acting developed.
Everything was superb
I particularly enjoyed the movement classes, which really surprised me.
Everything! I know that is a bit dull, but I did adore it and had the best two weeks.
The best thing about the workshop was the tutors and the variety of subjects covered, it took you out of your comfort zone and enabled you to explore more, test yourself and discover something new.
An incredible feeling of fun - reminded me of the fun I used to have when acting at school, whilst at the same time bringing forth something I've missed for so long. It felt fantastic doing text work in week two. It felt like I had come home.
What was the best thing about the workshop? Everything.
The standard of teaching was excellent. I felt more energetic, alive and open.
Learning about lots of different aspects of drama, it showed me that there is a lot more to it than I originally thought.
The level of focus of the tutors and the ingenuity of the exercises. I am very thankful for such a high level of teaching.
It provided me with a magnificent insight into the requirements for performance. Having filmed live performances in comedy and drama, I felt I was able to cross the line and understand the role of the actor.
I enjoyed all of it it was so fun and creative.
Meeting everyone, the friendliness of the teachers and how we interacted as a group. It also helped me overcome my shyness and speaking aloud difficulties. I also like the way that it was in the evenings and didn't come in between working hours.
I loved the text work, but I also found a new love of improvisation, which I have always had a tendency to shy away from before. The other students were great and the teachers were so supportive.
The course was really enjoyable and I felt I had gained so much from it.
Getting a chance to test the water and try a bit of acting again amongst other people in a similar situation - it was loads of fun and confidence boosting, even therapeutic to an extent.
New ideas far, far removed from my previous learning - lovely people - tutors and students.
