Senior Screen Acting

Ages 14 – 18 yrs


Not for drama queens, these levels are for students serious about their acting, either professionally or for creative fulfillment.

From Intermediate, Advanced and Intensive our classes become more industry-focused for those interested in an acting career. Students for these classes are asked to do a placement workshop – details for this are on the specific page course.

To maximise learning for themselves and the rest of the class, students must join by Week 3 of Term 1. Students joining these courses later in the year may be asked to participate in some 1 on 1 training with our head acting coach Shanta Surendran to ensure they are feeling confident and comfortable with the course curriculum, and do not suffer from enrolling late.

Your tuition fee includes a coy of the end-of-year film and a complimentary student ticket to the Premiere Night Screening at Luna Cinemas, Leederville, held in March of the following year.
