LEEDS TEEN CLASSES

Here at YAFTA we aim to develop confidence and inspire creativity and passion to improve the performance of our students as actors.

The structure of our teenagers classes is similar to that of the adult classes, however, tailored to be age and ability specific for teenagers.

It is our aim to prepare all students for work as a professional film and TV actors. We educate our students to equip them with the necessary skills, tools, knowledge and psychological preparation, which are essential to succeed in the film and TV industry. Our students are encouraged to be professional, punctual, polite and reliable throughout their education at YAFTA. Through the classes they will develop team working skills, build confidence and strengthen interpersonal relationships, all whilst embracing their own creativity through acting.

THE YAFTA TEEN ACTING CLASS
SYLABUS

All of our Leeds students follow a structured syllabus which has been carefully designed by an expert team comprising of graduates from the world’s top drama schools including London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA), Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), Central School of Speech and Drama (CSSD); Film & TV Agents and Occupational and Business Psychologists who specialise in assessment in selection.

Our syllabus is one of the most robust assessment processes offered in an academy of this nature and is open for all of our regular students to benefit from.

Our holistic style syllabus has been designed to develop a variety of skills required to work as a professional screen actor and is not simply focused on the skill of acting itself. Students will be prepared for all aspects of the acting industry to give them the best chance of success. All of these skills are transferable to the classroom, personal life and ultimately the working world.

We believe that the most appropriate way to assess progression is through continuous assessment of all aspects of the course. Therefore, students will not be assessed solely on an examination. Our assessment process takes into consideration all aspects of the educational programme at YAFTA and has four different elements:

IN-CLASS PERFORMANCE
AUDITION PERFORMANCE
AUDITION TECHNIQUE

.

ON-SET PERFORMANCE

Offering assessment on all components of the course allows students to gain credit for their commitment, time keeping skills, professional and motivated attitude, on- going performances in class as well as their performances on-set and in the final audition. This means you can be confident that those students who pass their exams have shown competence consistently throughout the year and in a range of environments.

There are two assessment dates throughout the year, one in January and one in July. A full syllabus and details of the assessment process will be sent to each student once their ability level has been established by their tutor, this can take a number of weeks after commencing classes.

COURSE CONTENT

A full list of course aims and objectives will be sent to students after enrolment on the course. In brief, the core areas that students will develop competence in are:

  • Technicalities of Acting for Screen
  • Emotion
  • Textual Awareness
  • Mechanics of Character
  • Improvisation
  • On-Set Skills
  • Audition Technique
  • Professionalism Skills
  • Industry Skills
SHOWCASE & AWARDS
Students will participate in filming a short film at the end of each year. This film will be premiered at a cinema showcase and awards event. These events are a wonderful way to celebrate the achievements of the students. Family and friends are invited along to see the work of their loved ones on the big screen.
TEACHERS

Our teacher selection process is stringent to ensure that our students receive the best quality education possible.

MASTERCLASSES
We hold regular masterclasses and workshops with industry professional actors, casting directors, directors and agents.
HALF PRICE TASTER SESSION
Students are expected to attend an initial half price taster session to determine which class they are most suited.
