Quality Drama Training for Adults in Galway

Three Very Different Short Summer Acting Courses

For those of you who fancy a short acting low commitment acting course for the remainder of the Summer, we’ve got just the thing for you, and each designed to give a very different experience of the world of drama.

We’re also really excited to try something new by looking at the personal development side of actor-training with our Tuesday night course. Expect lots of self-pampering and getting inspired with this one!

12 Week Courses resume as usual in September, and we are really looking forward to getting a good advanced group together to put on a stormer of a Christmas play! (Feel free to email us atgalwayactorsworkshop@gmail.com about this from now, so we can start getting an idea of what group we’re going to have!)


6 Week Summer Acting Courses for Adults

On Tuesday nights, starting August 9th, from 6.30 to 8.30, we are focusing on the personal development side of things with our new course Presence and Flow: Mindfulness and Creativity through Drama. Much actor-training is to do with heightening awareness of the present moment and finding a calm centred space from which to create a spring board for your imagination. Drawing on a wide variety of acting training techniques, we will explore physical presence and mental focus as well as fun creative exercises! You do not have to have any interest in being an actor to do this course, it’s made for anyone who wants space to themselves to relax and explore their creativity. Cost is €120/100 (student/unemployed)

On Wednesday nights, starting August 10th, from 6.30 to 9.30, our The Next Stage: Developing Professional Acting Skills course gives students an introductory experience of the key skills an actor needs to develop for a professional career. Over the six weeks, we will work with the text Translations by Brian Friel from the point of view of voice, movement, text analysis, character and ensemble. We will also have a workshop on audition skills and professional development. Some acting experience and an interest in the acting industry is required. Cost is €180/150 (student/unemployed)

On Thursday nights, starting August 11th, from 6.30 to 8.30, our Playtime for Big People: Drama for Craic and Devilment course is all about proving that sometimes live entertainment from your peers is far funnier than the comedy shows on the television! This course is a licence to get out of the house and get mischievous before the autumn term is upon us again! Whether you want to win an Oscar or simply have a laugh, this course is designed for maximum enjoyment, and you may just find you’ve accidentally become a better actor in the process. No experience is required, just a glint of fun in the eye! Cost is €120/100 (student/unemployed)

Each course is 6 weeks and takes place at the Anno Santo Hotel in Salthill.
