ADELAIDE(duration: 20 weeks)
A new 20 week intensive acting program to accelerate your craft and take you to your next level of training.
For the first time, ACA will be offering its unique, specialised industry training in a new facility away from its home in Sydney. ACA’s
Creative Development Platform for Actors in Adelaide launches in 2017 and is an advanced, comprehensive acting training that prepares
you for AMEB examinations for an Associate Diploma in Speech and Drama which is offered as an elective at the end of the 20-week creative
development course, an ideal and unique partnership.
(Please Note: The ACA Creative Development Platform becomes the prerequisite to undertaking the AMEB Diploma in Speech and Drama, however it can be completed as a stand-alone Course if the prerequisites have been obtained externally. Terms and conditions apply)
Beginning on Monday 27 March 2017, ACA is offering 20 places only in this new program running Monday and Thursday nights from 7:20 - 10:30 pm at the Goodwood Institute, Adelaide.
Note: mid-course break Monday May 29th and Thursday 1st June. Classes will be held on public holidays.
Over 20 weeks you will be guided by the most experienced tutors ACA have on staff. The program will only be offered to those who demonstrate the talent and ability as well as the potential and promise to take their acting to the next level. This program is your best step to further your creative development, to gain entry into a full-time course, or to accelerate your training to enter the profession.
