GSA Start is the ideal beginners entry level course for people who are interested in embarking on their performance journey, but have limited experience. 

This is a welcoming platform for adults of all ages totap into their creativity and to learn the basics of Acting for Stage. We have created this space for people to explore the performer within, meet like-minded people, and develop new skills.

Entry to this course is by interview only. Your  interview will consist of an informal discussion about your goals and your aspired development as a performer. 

The course takes place over three terms from October to June. Classes take place two evenings a week on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Each group will work with a specific tutor throughout the three terms, while guest tutors will teach skills workshops over the course of the year.

GSA Start is the first level in our Part-Time Training Suite – find out more about the full Suite here.
