Providing a dynamic, focussed and creatively explosive theatre arts training (physical theatre, acting, voice, mime, stage combat), CORE offers unique professional training and development for those wishing to enter the performing arts industry. Entry is by audition only where three key essentials required for the industry are assessed: Potential, Passion and Perseverance (the minimum age is 17).
The CORE Training Model
The CORE programmes are designed to provide a unique tuition model based on the classic theatre arts apprenticeship, developing trainees to reach their full potential through professional level training and personal study, and receiving opportunities to gain highly valuable, relevant experience in professional performance contexts. Classes are kept small to enable individual development.
A Unique Professional Training Experience
The trainees will be inspired, challenged and nurtured by the tutors. They will be encouraged to seek out opportunities, and press-in with full commitment at all times. The trainee will need to be self-disciplined, focused, flexible, able to work alone, as well as with a team and be fully dedicated to the professional learning process. Quality tuition and mentoring serves to make the trainee fully aware of what is required for working as a professional within the performing arts industry.
We not only provide for those wishing to become performers, but also for future teachers. During their intermediate year, students get experience in observing and assisting the first years in class and production; practicing teaching skills and receiving tutoring. During their third year, they lead partial or full classes themselves (under supervision). And we prepare them for the LTCL Level 6 teaching diploma.
