Drawing from Canada's rich theatrical milieu, centered in Toronto, the School offers training under the guidance of a wide variety of working artists who teach, coach one-to-one, and direct.
Coupled with a strong academic curriculum, a considerable amount of time is devoted to developing the fundamentals of theatre - acting, movement, and voice. Different approaches to acting - such as modern scene study, mask, classical styles, clown, and film - are studied, providing you with a comprehensive performance toolkit. You also receive dance and music instruction, and special workshops in areas like stage combat and playwriting. The business side of acting - company regulations and organization, Equity rules, contracts unions, and agents - is covered.
Over a period of four years, you transition from class work, to studio presentations, to a full season of public performances and self-generated works in your final year.
