Short Courses for Professional Actors

short courses & drop-in classes

Maintain and enhance your skills between jobs

a community of actors

We believe actors thrive when they are inspired and challenged by their fellow actors.

Our Short Courses provide opportunities for professional actors to come together – in order to maintain and enhance their skills.

We aim for every class to provide a safe and supportive environment. You will be encouraged and challenged to develop your technique, maintain your playfulness and spontaneity – and benefit from the support of a community of like-minded creatives.

casting workshops

We hold regular workshops with leading casting directors to help members of the Collective develop their industry network and make new connections with potential employers.

As a working-class actor and full time carer, originally from a tiny fishing village in the middle of nowhere, I have always felt daunted by any formalised training or ‘drop-in’ actor sessions. This was until I started at Collective. They  have created such a welcoming working environment for actors of all backgrounds.

We are a community, and being part of a community isn’t time-limited.
