*** Update - Tuesday 30 June - We took the difficult decision to close the building and suspend all face to face teaching and auditions at the end of March. Since then we have been running morning and afternoon classes online, and filmed auditions followed by one to one recalls and interviews. Neither are ideal, but both are working far better than we imagined.
Faculty and students are working hard to get the most out of the circumstances and to keep the flow of the training. On 15th June we opened the building up again for limited activity. We have made it Covid secure and adhere strictly to Government guidelines. Movement classes have been happening for groups of 6 and some one to one tutorials and coaching have been on site too. We have also started our graduate film projects with 2 actors and 4 professional crew.
We will continue to follow the guidelines and we will keep this page updated as soon as there are any changes.***
