INTRODUCING MTA’s
 PRACTICAL ACTING CLASSES

Do you dream of becoming an actor and performing in front of an adoring crowd? Is acting your burning passion?

If so, Melbourne Teen Actors’ Practical Acting classes can help you ignite your passion and bring it to life.

The Practical class is for students who are serious about taking their craft to the next level. This four hour class is designed to push students into new strengths while also honing their current skill set through a series of exercises that are aimed to expand their emotional range and strengthen their ability access these emotions quickly and effectively.

This class is broken up into two sections. The first half takes exercises from Lee Strasberg and Stella Adler as students delve into their sense memory and build up characters.

The second half of class is aimed at working on scenes from Hollywood and Australian films and plays.

However unlike most classes, MTA’s practical class is not aimed and learning your lines and churning out scenes week after week.

Instead the goal is to build the relationships and find the truth to the scene through improvising moments around the beats of the scenes.

When finally the scene has taken shape over this exploration the lines come back in and students then move towards filming the scene. They can then use these scenes for their own personal showreels which will help them land agents and more auditions.

For students interested in taking their skills to a professional level over the holiday periods, our Master Class is also available.

Our Acting courses take place over four terms and run for nine weeks each.
The Practical acting class cost $500 per term (9 weeks, 4 hours each class)
Drop in/Casual classes are available and cost $65 per class.
