Adelaide Courses


ACA Adelaide offers a range of Short Courses in Acting, Camera, TV Presenting, Voice Overs and Singing.

Our Courses have been developed as building blocks for those beginning to investigate the skills that are required as the fundamental techniques in acting, through to courses developed to extend existing techniques onto courses covering more complex techniques within a professional practice model.

If you are a relative newcomer or looking to extend your skills as a pathway into our intensive Part Time Courses, a short course with ACA is a sure fire way to ignite your creativity.
