GSA Studio – A New Level of Part-Time Actor Training
Monday & Wednesday 7pm-9pm or Tuesday & Thursday 7pm-9pm
At the Gaiety School of Acting, we understand that Full-Time Actor Training is not possible for everyone. This is why we created the GSA Studio. This programme is a course for anyone who wishes to persue actor training, while balancing the rest of their lives. This programme is the first level in the GSA Studio Suite and has been designed for actors with prior training. Applicants to the GSA Studio course must complete an audition and interview to assess both the applicant’s talent and commitment to learn. Once successful, incoming students will be expected to commit to all three terms of the course. This commitment is for maximum benefit of the individual and the ensemble.
Actors who are accepted on GSA Studio will work with their fellow students and tutors to connect with their specific qualities and skills as an actor. Students will be given the opportunity to play and explore within the studio setting over the course of the three terms. The opportunity to explore, experiment and examine is crucial for an actor, giving them the chance to learn what works for them. The aim of the GSA Studio is for students to complete the year as a more fully rounded performer. On completion the group will be ready to put their skills to use on the stage. The class will meet twice a week with a core tutor, and supplementary masterclasses and seminars/webinars will be offered very term.
This course is the ideal opportunity for an aspiring performer to trial a myriad of performance styles. In GSA Studio you will find what suits you as a unique and individual performer.
Due to smaller classes, we have a strictly limited capacity, thus all classes are now audition only. Application is currently only open to current GSA students – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be alerted when further spaces are released.
In each term students will focus on voice, movement, scene study and ensemble work. They will also take part in masterclasses covering topics such as singing, dance, comedy improv and devising.
Seminars/webinars will include talks from industry professionals such as actors, directors, casting directors and producers.
The course will take place in the Gaiety School of Acting in Temple Bar. In the event of the return of social distance restrictions, classes may be moved to an online platform.
