Been to so many acting classes over the last few years, evening classes, drop-ins. This was a proper acting class, not messing about, playing games, wasting time. It was not patronising, we weren’t treated like amateurs. It was the real stuff. Eye-opening. If you’re seriously interested in knowing what it’s all about - go to this one. Clare is a brilliant teacher. Tess Jacobs, 28, Croydon, Dec 22
I went with my partner and we had a great time learning about various Acting styles and practicing some improv. Claire is a fantastic teacher and a lovely person. 10/10 would recommend! Selma M, Nov 2022
I am blown away by Clare's skills and experience. I attended the taster session, and I cannot believe how much I took away in such a short space of time! It was phenomenal! She gave a great insight to the industry. The exercises/scenarios were fun and engaging. What I really admired is her thoughtful, honest and raw feedback, and with direction, how she really pushes you to go beyond your comfort zone to get the best out of you.
She has a great sense of humour and very wise and I know anyone who books this course will definitely learn a few things about themselves in such a short space of time! I will definitely be booking an intensive course in 2023 to gain more knowledge and wisdom from Clare and her team! Zee U, Nov 2022 We brought 8 of our acting students from the USA to do acting and singing workshops in LONDON. We found THE ACTORS TRAINING STUDIO and we are SO glad we did! Our students said this was the BEST thing about their trip! We had an all day session and each moment learned so much! HIGHLY recommend, Clare was Fantastic! 1000/10! Empire Dance, Sept 2022
I attended this class at the end of January 2020. Clare is an amazing instructor & I'd sign up to one of her longer running classes in a heartbeat if I didn't currently have other commitments. Clare has obviously had plenty of experience in getting the best out of those attending her classes and she'll still go the extra mile to help, encourage & give advice way beyond the allotted class time if required.
