At Northern:Drama Acting School you will attend a class initially once a month with the option of an additional second class. By attending once a month your training and development is not at a slow pace. In addition to attending your class you will need to complete prep for future sessions, carry out research and undertake individual and group projects.
In agreement with Jo, each student will set a series of goals which will be developed during the term and each student has a training plan specific to them and their needs and ambitions.
