About The Program
Students will cover a variety of acting skills for stage, film, television and radio plus learn different approaches to the acting process.
Students will create vital new work, focus on classic and contemporary theatre from Australia and all over the world and become familiar with form and style. We will also prepare students for the challenges of new and emerging ways of working in the performing arts.
We aim to extend our students knowledge, understanding and practical skills in all aspects of the performing arts and provide educational options that are essential for student’s immediate and future education.
For those students wanting careers in the Arts our Next Generation Program also focus on life beyond the classroom and we have a range of life skills and performing arts options where students can listen to and ask questions of industry professionals, with the aim to build working partnerships and contacts along with industry awareness. Students are also supported and introduced to self-management and can apply their practical skills in a professional environment through work placement opportunities.
There is no experience necessary and you can start today so join us at Ovation for the opportunity to learn invaluable skills that will assist you throughout life.
Next Generation Learning Outcomes
Our year Next Generation Acting program is first rate. Majority of the program is practical based. Students will continue to have fun and learn as we focus on developing acting techniques: physical, intellectual, and spiritual.
Physically we will develop student’s bodies and voices to be expressive and employ intellectual skills that allow students to analyse and question character and dramatic themes, whilst also looking at developing spiritual skills in the sense of finding your ability as an actor to relax, be centred and observe and focus on all elements in class. Through this pro
gram we ask students to begin critical evaluation on their own creative process along with noting the processes of rehearsing, performing and production.
Acting for Film & Television
The basics of acting translate from stage to screen, but there are a wide range of skills and knowledge that are specific to acting for the camera. From the very first class students are introduced to the camera, and learn a range of skills including acting within the different frames, hitting your mark and learn how to control and master emotional and physical continuity.
Students will also learn how to give attention to given circumstances, also learn on film etiquette and gage a range of insight into industry behaviour and also discover the range of career opportunities that are available within the television and film industries.
Acting for Stage
This program helps students study theatre as a collaborative art form. The emphasis in this program is on the process of creating and maintaining a viable theatre piece from the first cold read through to the final performance.
