Acting training at the Imaginarium focuses on principles of acting which develops you as an actor/actress by you connecting the mastery of techniques with imagination and creative approach to your performance work. Actors need the time and space to explore the processes and skills needed to develop the craft of acting to characterise a performance physically, vocally and emotionally.
At the Imaginarium we deliver acting linking in creative drama creating a unique way to explore the techniques given to us by practitioners such as Stanislavski and Brecht within various styles of acting that will create realistic and emotionally charged performances. Plays are studied and monologues explored through a series of sessions based around a given technique or theme.
Creative writing is also taught with scripts being devised by the students and the process of devising and analysis studied in detail.
Students can study texts, improvisation, drama, comedy, emotional range and characterisation work that will throw students into a range of acting opportunities in an encouraging environment to build confidence gradually. Training develops skills, knowledge and attitudes which will connect you to the craft of acting.
LONDON COLLEGE OF MUSIC AND MEDIA (LCM) SINGING (MUSICAL THEATRE, POPULAR SINGING) AND ACTING
Staff at the Imaginarium Creative Studios have been delivering tuition for the London College of Music and Media (LCM) examinations for over ten years and our results speak for themselves with distinctions being achieved across the board! Outstanding results! LCM examinations are now also validated to give UCAS points from grade 6+ which are a huge asset to any students wishing to progress onto higher education and are internationally recognised.
The LCM training is taught within a small group setting and all taught in the same session. We offer LCM examinations in musical theatre, popular singing and acting. Training is separated into two sub sections 1) Singing 2) Acting
LCM training is an ideal way for any student to train in all three disciplines of performing including singing, dancing and acting. LCM class is perfect for anyone who just loves performing as the exams are completely optional which means students can attend classes for fun and then take the exams if they wish to as an added bonus. Please note students in the LCM class do not take part in the Company shows like the other classes do as they have their own theatrical showcase at the end of the academic year. Any students wishing to take part in our large scale productions must either audition for the Youth Company Detonation Warriors or take part in a dance class to gain a role as a chorus dancer.
