Impulse – weekly acting class

“As someone who has dreams of opening his own production studio, I cannot thank you enough. I learned so much in this weekly class. I developed an understanding of character, scene building and storytelling. I would totally recommend Durban Actors Studio – its a place out of the ordinary!!!” 


Impulse is an acting class for ages 17 to adult. The class offers weekly training to continuously develop and expand your acting technique. You attend classes term on term and year on year to constantly polish and refine your skills.

During our time together you will learn to understand the delivery of text and subtext, develop vocal control, improve articulation and respond vocally to the demands of a role. You will be taught how to perform with spontaneity and focus, develop an understanding of body language, posture and gesture, portray characters from different periods and genres as well as know how to use your performance space effectively.

Each teaching term gives the student the chance to learn and develop new skills; we recommend a minimum of 4 terms to be attended to cover the basics. You can begin your training at the start of any term.

Selected students who excel in class will be invited to perform for invited VIPs, talent agents, local directors and industry professionals, as well as family and friends, at our year-end in studio showcase.
