Constantly honing your craft is vital as an actor. If you are currently not working as an actor you need to be in acting class; simple as that. Acting is like any other craft and it requires constant work to grow and develop. Sydney is a vibrant international city that is the hub for acting in Australia. There are plenty of opportunities to study acting including weekly courses, masterclasses and short courses.
It’s a great idea to ask your agent or honestly assess where you need to focus your attention as an actor. Are you struggling with your work on screen, or is it your voice that is holding you back? It might not be that you need acting classes, but voice or movement classes first. They all work together to benefit your acting.
There are a number of courses to choose from. Here are a few places that offer acting lessons in Sydney we highly recommend. Make sure you’re not paying too much for classes!
