Summer Intensive Courses
Our four-week and two-week Summer Intensive courses are open to beginners and seasoned professionals alike. All you need is a passion for acting and a desire to develop your craft.
Free Your Imagination
Each year we dedicate the month of August to our two-week and four-week Summer Intensive courses. Open to beginners and seasoned professionals alike, all you need is curiosity and a desire to develop your craft. The course is open to anyone with a passion for acting and/or a desire to develop their personal confidence and presence. We welcome applicants of any age (18+) and nationality, regardless of previous acting experience.
Our courses are the perfect place to work in a creative and safe environment with highly qualified and passionate instructors. The core team of directors and teachers will support, inspire and challenge you, as well as encourage play, openness and creativity. We want to ensure you feel nourished, pushed and available to your fellow ensemble members. You will build your confidence and experience the real meaning of the ensemble in an atmosphere of joy and discovery.
Develop Your Craft
Mornings are dedicated to discovery classes in acting, voice and movement, with the afternoons spent acting with professional directors. Your morning classes explore the foundations of movement and voice, while improvisation and theatre games are used to build confidence and playfulness. In your acting classes, you will work with a range of texts from classical and modern drama, to poetry and song. We choose to focus on scenes and texts that suit the particular needs and energy of the ensemble.
The course concludes with a performance. All classes are delivered in English and training is six hours each day.
The whole Summer Intensive course is curated to be fully immersive allowing you to see, feel and experience your highest creative potential. Many of our evenings are spent together which allows you to develop deeper bonds with the group in a relaxed and informal setting. Here is where you can make connections for life.
The course is enhanced by the location of Fontainebleau, which is a beautiful town less than hour by train from Paris, set in the heart of the forest. The town is small enough for you to walk to classes and restaurants from your accommodation, but has the vibrance and spirit of a much larger town. We often lead sessions in the Château gardens or the 70,000 acres of forest that surround the town as the weather is generally wonderful at this time of year and the forest air is restorative and brings energy to the group.
