NEXT BATCH STARTS ON 10th JUNE 2021

4 Month Comprehensive Diploma in Acting

The Four month, full-time course is a step-by-step procedure of self-investigation for the actor in training. The student’s focus is kept on what he himself can do truthfully under imaginary circumstances. Thus, misconceptions are shed, new techniques gained and the actor emerges after 4 months, more of an honest human being who is now ready to “act” truthfully.
