PROFESSIONAL ACTING COURSES
ADS programs have been specially created and developed by founder Fay Beck, with the aim of expanding the actor’s capacity for artistry, and stretching their abilities beyond self imposed limitations and boundaries. While heavily based on BEAT and the Meisner Technique, the teaching at ADS extends beyond the technique’s scope encompassing philosophical and psychological theories of self, personality, character and mind, to offer students a truly unique acting training experience. The Studio prides itself on nurturing and fostering diversity, inclusivity and acceptance.
