Independent weekend theatre school in Oxford for young people aged 4 to 19
Professional actor Marcus D’Amico created Authentic Performance Academy for children and young people interested in developing their acting, musical theatre and performing arts skills in a professional yet fun and safe environment.
Students gain confidence, re-learn the creative process of play, engage with public speaking and enhance performance skills, gaining a real sense of their unique talents and strengths. All children are valued for their individuality and the sessions are informative, relaxed, inspiring and life changing!
Our aim is to provide children and young adults with a real experience of the actor’s rehearsal process through various teaching methods and acting techniques. Featured studies are monologues, duologues, improvisation, devised theatre, screen acting and stage acting.
Alongside acting, pupils are taught Singing by our top vocal coaches to aid with performance, auditions, breathing techniques and projection.
We also offer Dance as an option open to all students, taught by choreographer Thomas Page.
Other performing arts skills are incorporated throughout the year in the form of workshops presented by top international professionals on subjects such as physical theatre and audition techniques, amongst others.
At the end of each year we produce a summer production at The North Wall Theatre.
We have both a morning school and an afternoon school running on Saturdays in term.
Term fees are £320 for eleven weeks.
Students form the following groups: Minis (ages 4-7); Juniors (ages 8-10); Intermediates (ages 11-13) and Seniors (ages 14-19)
