GSA: Beginners Suite



Join Us Online This Summer

The Gaiety School of Acting’s doors may be closed, but we have moved our expertise, knowledge and community to an online platform for summer 2020. This 7 week course has been designed especially for distance learning and is aimed at beginners who wish to dip their toe in a number of areas of the performing arts. The course will include tuition in Acting for Camera, Acting for Stage and Devising Theatre.

This course will be streamed live from our studios in Temple Bar, Dublin. Due to the collaborative nature of the course, this is also a great opportunity to meet people who share your interests, while expanding your skill set, and tapping into your creativity.

The course will include the following modules:

  • Introduction to Acting Skills for Camera
  • Approaching sides and tips for self-taping
  • Introduction to Acting for Stage – voice, body, emotional connection
  • Working with a scene partner
  • Devising Theatre
  • Tapping into your creativity
  • Group and solo acting and devising projects

This course has capacity for a maximum of 10 students. Students can be beginners or have some previous experience, as the tutor will adapt class content to ensure everyone is challenged.

The GSA has been working with their full-time and part-time students in an online forum since March 2020 and has developed proven methods of teaching. This experience, combined with 34 years of actor training, promises you a memorable and valuable learning platform.
