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. From developing an understanding of character, scene building to storytelling. There is no doubt that I would totally recommend Durban Actors Studio; its a place out of the ordinary!!!” 


Impulse is an acting class for ages 17 to adult which offers weekly training to continuously develop and expand your acting technique, 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 learn how to 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.

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