The YAFTA Intensive

Joanne Moss

The YAFTA Intensive is a six day intensive acting course for those looking to really hone their skills. It will culminate in a casting workshop with Coronation Street Casting Associate Joanne Moss.

The course is open to both current students who wish to expand on their skill set and spend time working intensively on their craft and prospective students who wish to undertake a YAFTA course prior to committing to long-term training in the field.

The course is designed for adults but exceptions can be made for teenage students of YAFTA who already demonstrate a high level of acting skill.

This course is unlikely to be suitable for those who have attended drama school.

Throughout the six-day, YAFTA Intensive Programme, students will cover:

  • Improvisation Techniques
  • Characterisation Techniques
  • Continuity in Screen Performance
  • Method Acting Techniques: Substitution & Affective Memory
  • Agents, Casting & Audition Technique
  • Psychological Resilience Techniques: How to Beat Post-Audition Blues
  • Working with Text.
  • Technicalities of Screen Acting: Balancing Performance with the Technical Requirements of the Actor.
  • Acting for Soap & Drama
  • Acting for Comedy
  • Casting for Soap & Drama for Joanne Moss

Students will benefit from working with a variety of tutors who have trained at the country’s top drama schools including RADA, LAMDA, CSSD, LIPA and ALRA and industry experts including agents and casting directors.

The first 5 places are available at the discounted rate of £320 per person.
