Great course with plenty of warm-up exercises and improv with the aim of preparing for scene work. The tutor has vast knowledge about the industry as she is herself a working actor.

This course is really fun and energetic. The tutor is wonderful and makes you believe in yourself. Positive feedback is given and there always seems to be high attendance every week, which speaks volumes. Like myself many have completed this class on other occasions. I look forward to it each week and leave Build feeling energised and mentally stimulated.

A great course which is both fun and challenging. It lacks an assessment framework so its hard to know how you are improving and the room can get very crowded/noisy during rehearsals.

Just the right combination of fun and hard work - I plan to take this course a few times because it would be different experience every time...

This is the best course ever at Build. I absolutely adore the tutor, he is just the 'bees knees'. (Opppph and this is not in any way biased!) Because he just GETS the struggles and triumphs of aspiring actors from all walks of life. I will return again and again, between spells of living in France.
