Across all of the various training elements of our work, we have a some core principles and values that we will always work to.

Having personal and artistic integrity in our training is incredibly important to us, and with various training options available to people, we feel it’s important to be transparent about our approach and how we work. With no big sales pitches or false promises.

Progression & Development:

The Wheel is a symbol of movement and progression, we believe that actor training is dynamic and constantly evolving process of skills and personal development a continuous cycle of researching, doing and reflecting. Whatever background or experience you have, you always have something to bring to the studio, something to experience and something to learn.

Valuing the Individual and the Ensemble:

We pride ourselves on being friendly, personal and supportive, creating safe and secure environments that enable actors to be brave and open. Actors come in all shapes and sizes and there is no one way to train, so we value and embrace all the unique individual differences actors bring into the studio, and will always endeavour to tailor the training to ensure Individuals get the most from their time with us.

Practical and Industry specific:

All our courses, workshops and content will always be driven by industry demands, to ensure the experience is focussed, relevant and current. All tutors/workshop leaders are and will continue to be active working professionals in their fields.
