  • About
    The Central School of Speech and Drama has been going much longer than a great many university drama departments. It was founded in 1906 by Elsie Fogerty to offer an entirely new form of training in speech and drama for young actors and other students. The choice of name – the Central School – highlighted the School’s commitment to a broad range of training systems for vocal and dramatic performance. It espoused principles that were firmly held yet responsive to change. That sense of continuing critical openness to new developments is a lasting hallmark of the School.

Course: post graduate movement studies, 2008
The MA Movement Studies was ideal for me in that it accommodated my previous experience and expanded that into new fields of expertise. The tutors where of the best practitioners in the country. The group size was small and infrastructure put in place to facilitate and celebrate diverse backgrounds. You will get out of it what you give.

Course: Introduction to Acting, 2010
This course was really helpful with great teachers. The intensive Saturday was particularly helpful with sessions on voice, movement and improvisation. The course focused mainly on two acting techniques - Meisner and Stalinavsky and gave a good insight into how you could use these techniques in acting.
