Hi there

Thank you for registering to receive information about our classes. Below are the details of the upcoming evening acting courses starting in the coming weeks. Places are still available but are limited so if you would like to join or would like further information, please do get in touch as soon as possible. You can reach me best on [address removed] or[masked] in the first instance. Please state your preferred evening when contacting by email.

I have been running these short courses in Holborn for several years now. My students vary from young working executives (who simply wish to gain confidence in speaking in front of an audience or improve their presentation skills) to those looking to work as actors professionally.

Participants will find themselves gaining confidence in public speaking and working on several short plays by the end of the 10 week course.

I look forward to hearing from you soon or, if I have taught you before, I look forward to welcoming you back.

Best wishes
Julian Caddy

Testimonials

?Just a note to thank you very much for such enjoyable and interesting acting classes. I really enjoyed the experience and actually think it helped with my career as the law firm I am training with have offered me a permanent solicitor post.?

?I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience of acting and thought the course was an excellent introduction.?

?Julian Caddy has been an amazing teacher who definitely takes you out of your comfort zone and challenges you with interesting characters and improvisation scenarios encouraging you to get under the skin of the character. He definitely has a way to make you feel relaxed so you can make the most of the classes, initially I thought 3 hours was far to long but now its the days in between that drag. We laugh so much in classes sometimes in hurts! I look forward to taking some more courses but this time I think it's going to have to be twice a week so I don't have to wait so long!?

?The introduction was valuable and the improvisation part was fun and unexpectedly stress-free. Julian provided great feedback to all participants to help us improve throughout.?

?I really enjoyed the course. I particularly liked doing the improvisations. Julian?s feedback was helpful and he generally chose parts that would challenge me by taking me out of my comfort zone. I also found the psychology aspect interesting.?

?I learned so much about myself and my fears and have a newfound respect for actors (hard work, really).?)

?Julian is a great host. He has the ability to make everybody feel comfortable and brings out the best in all participants.?
