(Level Two)

Do you have experience in acting and performance? Are you ready to progress onto more advanced training and more challenging performances? Are looking to bridge yourself up to the Advanced Acting Course or just keep pushing yourself and seeing where it goes? Intermediate Acting Level Two focuses on training and performing at a higher standard than Intermediate Acting Level One.

Work with leading directors and acting coaches such as John Mitchell (former associate director of the Traverse Theatre) Clare Cairns (Founder and Director of Acting Out) and Marion Geoffray (Ensemble and Film & TV Director for Acting Out). 
The Intermediate Acting and Performance Level Two Course is the perfect bridge to the Advanced Acting Course. It's only for a small group of selected students who we have trained previously at Intermediate levels.

What’s the Difference between Intermediate Acting Level 1 & 2?

Intermediate Acting & Performance Level Two is a more advanced course, with a significantly smaller class size. In this course, coaches wish to focus on students who are more experienced or who display deeper levels of practice and understanding.

Intermediate Acting & Performance Level 2 is an organic, bespoke class. The exact structure of what you’ll cover depends on the students who have been invited to enrol. The term tends to be more “theory heavy” and actors are given the time and space to develop this. Everyone who enrols already has performing experience, therefore show material is much more challenging for the actor. 

In the past students have covered Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov, Adler, Hagen, Strasberg, Meisner, Mamet and many different Theatre Art Forms before being casted and directed in their end of term performance. 

At Acting Out, our ultimate goal is always to get the best out of you. If you are happy staying in any level, this is great! If you want to progress, we will push and challenge you while always retaining the child-like fun you would expect from any performing-art course.

If you feel the Intermediate Acting & Performance Level 2 is for you but have not worked with us before, drop us an email and we can advise you about enrolling.

Acting Out Drama School has been immensely useful for me, arming me with experience ranging from character expression to improv skills. I wouldn’t be pursuing a career in the industry were it not for Clare and the Acting Out team.
