1 Year Diploma in Professional Acting
2016
For people who have tried life but keep coming back to acting, this school is the perfect fit. Every day the intensive lessons challenged and drew something unexpected out of me. At DSL you're expected to be brave. I  was at my best physically and spiritually during my training, and still use many of my notes daily. A life investment.
