Are you interested in learning acting and drama in order to gain confidence, improve focus and at the same time, to meet new people? You may already be a trained/training actor or you may have never tried acting before. In either case and anywhere in between, this group is for you. We don't do trust games, throwing balls or being trees but one thing we promise is that we WILL teach you to act, a skill that will stay with you for life.
For over 8 years I have taught many hundreds of people interested in learning acting from all points of view or experience. I teach acting in a practical, no nonsense way which can produce dividends for people at every stage of their lives. Using simple tools, I show you how to understand and create a character's state of mind, a method you can use time after time - in all circumstances, acting or not.
Please come along and find out more in a relaxed and non judgemental environment. You will be amazed at what you can achieve.
In addition to these Meetup sessions, we run a variety of courses, from weekend workshops to 10 week evening courses. You can find out more here: http://www.sweet-uk.net/actingclasses.html

I am a professional actor (http://www.spotlight.com/interactive/...), director and theatre producer (of over 500 shows seen by more than 150,000 people).
My acting and directing training was for 4 years with a Russian director, the late Sam Kogan, who himself studied in Moscow under Maria Knebel, a pupil and colleague of Constantin Stanislavski. This technique inspired many of the most distinguished acting tutors across the world and almost without exception, the 'greatest' Hollywood actors from Brando to Day Lewis use or used a technique derived from Stanislavski. My approach is based on both Stanislavski and Kogan's work with an emphasis on making acting genuinely accessible and understandable by and useful for all.
