Singing and Acting
At PPA we hold monthly singing workshops, designed to work on the voice and movement in our Musical Theatre classes. We also offer private tuition.
Taught by Russell Smith, the acting classes consist of exercises and games that work on the basics such as confidence and vocal quality all the way through to more complicated work such as Laban technique, Stanislavski technique, Practical aesthetics much of the same techniques that Russell studied extensively at NIDA and WAAPA and uses as a professional actor today . The weekly drama classes are accessible to all levels of performer and aimed at making the experience of learning about acting fun. All classes will have a show at the end of term 3, then in the last term work on Screen Technique.

This class is for the more seasoned actor who is looking for something a little more challenging and attends this, along with the regular class. This class delves into a more in depth approach to looking at the craft of acting. Advanced students will have major roles in the Acting Show Term 3.
