Adult Acting for Beginners at GEST

An exciting opportunity to learn and develop basic acting skills including improvisation, character work and general acting techniques in a friendly and supportive environment. There are around 18 people in each class, and this course is best suited for drama beginners or those with little to no experience. An ideal place to practice conversational English in a new and creative environment. We run two separate beginners courses, one on Monday evenings, and one on Tuesday evenings. Both courses are made up of 10 sessions, with a one-week break for easter/påsklov.
