If you are not looking for a factory and want teachers that really care about you, this is the place! The environment is made so for you to feel safe and grow as an actor AND as an individual. But be prepared: it's intense.

Lily Hollingworth
Course: 1 yr foundation course, 2016
Previously all my acting experience had taken place in my various school environments. This school gave me such a wonderful experience as my first time really delving into the acting industry and how to develop yourself as an actor. The support of the teaches was great, particularly as they were all working actors themselves and the schools international background allowed me to work with people from all over the world whom I might not have had the chance to work with before.

Fantastic course, life-changing experience. LSDA provides an intense training that doesn't just prepare you as an actor, but also as a self-employed individual. All the classes link together and one of the best things about LSDA, is that it preserves everything about you that makes you unique as a person and a performer, not just preserves it but stretches it's capacity and potential and strengthens it. Possibly the best year in my life.
Clare Marie Woodward
Course: Act101, 2014
This course has given me an excellent rudimentary education in movement, voice, improvisation, text and acting technique. It was taught by professional, working actor mentors, and although entry level, the standards expected of us were high.

Kinvara Jenkins
Course: 1 year advanced acting diploma course, 2011
London School of Dramatic Art provided fantastic training for me. As it was only a year course it left no time for messing about and pushed all students to take responsibility for their work early on. We have performed some of the best plays in history: King Richard the Second, All my Sons, Metamorphosis, and many more.
