Every time I speak about my studies or hear about anyone wanting to study acting in Cape Town, whether full time or part-time, I jump to suggest my alma mater.
I feel that it is one of the few academies that really prepare you for what the entertainment industry expects of you not only locally, but internationally.
Having coaches who are still working artists was a privilege like no other, because you get first-hand experience and expertise. You leave with an incredible toolbox of accumulated skills to help you excel!
On a personal level, it was an amazing feeling to have an institute show the support I’ve received post-graduation, as you grow as a performer and individual in your career. I’ll always relive my time at Act Cape Town and just remember how much gratitude I have and high regard I hold, for every single person who worked and helped shape part of who I am as a performer today.
My Act Cape Town journey started when I was 15, with their teen acting classes.
Thereafter, I decided to further my studies with them due to the professional nature of each class and the surplus of knowledge and advice I acquired from industry professionals – whom we were lucky enough to have as coaches.
ACT is a safe space to explore your range as a performer , but will still give you that extra push towards reaching your full potential. My time at ACT stood me in good stead for my acting career and provided me with tools needed in the industry.
Having recently completed studies at Act Cape Town. I can reflect on what an amazing journey it has been.
The course content is top class and contains everything that the aspiring actor needs to know in order to prepare for an audition and a role, as well as how to conduct themselves both on set and in front of the camera.
Our lecturers have a passion for the craft which is infectious, and which makes every class both informative and a lot of fun. Our classes were truly a highlight of my day while doing the various courses.
Overall, I am truly grateful for choosing to come to ACT, and for the overall experience. I have no illusions about how difficult it is to find success in the industry, but I have no doubt that having completed the courses, I now have the best possible foundation to build on.
Thank you Act Cape Town.
Act Cape Town has given me two of the best things needed to succeed in the acting world: preparation and opportunity.
ACT equipped me with the essential skills to develop self, craft and an understanding of the industry.
Learning to take direction and criticism. Learning to listen and trust impulses.
These are but a few of the things that ACT will teach you… and from you it requires patience, perseverance and courage. All you have to do is bring everything you have to the table; and willingness to receive with an open mind and heart.
