How are ISCAD courses going to improve my communication skills?
The principle at the base of ISCAD’s methodology is to apply the holistic approach to communication traditionally used in acting training to language studies.
Each course encourages you to improve your technical skills in verbal communication, to increase your awareness of the non-verbal forms of communication (97% of all communication!) and to develop your confidence as a bi-lingual speaker with the awareness of your unique cultural background.
You will finally project your personal style with pride. You will do this by increasing your vocabulary and learning to access English words quickly and easily.
I am a fluent/native speaker but I want to improve my acting skills. Is ISCAD for me?
Yes. The courses on offer at the school are all taught by professional drama tutors with proved experience of teaching on these subjects at academic level in the UK and in Europe. By attending the courses you will have access to acting methodologies from around the world, including subjects rarely taught on University courses.
What if my English is not so good?
Every class includes a mixed level of linguistic abilities. The principle is that of “peer learning”, where students are encouraged to exchange skills.
Will I get to perform?
By participating to the courses and workshop you will get the chance to perform in front of your fellow students. You will be also able to invite friends and family to the last day of the course.
You will be able to perform in a full-scale theatre production when you enrol on Forum Theatre, the Acting Foundation degree and the Stage Acting programme.
I can not afford the full fee. Is there any way that I might still take part to the courses?

What happens in the Theatre Skills course?

What is Commedia dell’Arte?
It is the classic Italian Renaissance mask theatre. Using physicality and gestures, you will improvise comic sketches and learn the basics of comedy and slapstick theatre.
What will I do in Voice and Accent Reduction?

How can I apply to Stage Acting?
