Online Course: Storytelling for Beginners

LEARN AND TRAIN / FUNDED BY ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND

 

Always wanted to try acting or develop your storytelling skills? Enrolment is now open for our FREE six-week online course: Storytelling for Beginners.

We are born to be storytellers. Storytelling is a unique skill that all humans possess. Wherever a great story is told, theatre exists. But how do you tell stories so that characters leap into life and the audience are compelled to enter the imagined world you present? 

Led by Cheryl Stapleton, this fun and interactive course will help you unlock the storyteller within and teach you the techniques you need to draw in and thrill an audience. Through games, exercises, characterisation, vocal and physical training, Cheryl will help you develop confidence, expression and stage presence as a passionate actor-storyteller.
