Find Online Drama Classes with a Private Tutor

While many people dream of acting, for most these aspirations remain just that 鈥 dreams. However, taken seriously, and by implementing careful steps, it is possible to make acting a lucrative and rewarding career.

As a job, acting seems like one of the most glamourous and well-paid of all professions, but the reality that behind the scenes there is a lot of hard work and sacrifice. This hard work starts with the right training.

When it comes to learning how to act, like anything in life there are various routes to take. If you are fortunate enough to know from a young age, that a career in acting is in your future, there are many high schools in South Africa that offer drama as a matric subject.

Then of course, you could get a degree from the Rhodes University Drama department, Stellenbosch University Drama department or University of Pretoria鈥檚 School of the Arts: Drama or a qualification from any number of independent drama schools.

Today, you also have the option of online acting lessons, and even online acting lessons for beginners. In fact, in recent times, online qualifications of any sort, including those for online drama classes are widely accepted.

If your search for an online acting course has led you to Superprof, you could be on the path to tailor-making a unique and effective method for you to hone your acting techniques, prepare for auditions, build your confidence and enjoy yourself.

There are dozens of online acting lessons through Superprof tutors who are based all over South Africa. And if you have decided that online acting classes are your preferred way to study, you could even look further afield than your own country because the internet has no borders!

What to Expect from an Online Acting Course

When it comes to an online acting course, you can expect the content to be very similar to what you would find in a classroom set up. A few typical modules include:

  • Acting
  • Camera Acting
  • Voice training
  • Theatre Making
  • Direction
  • Radio and TV presenting
  • Movement
  • Script Writing
  • Improvisation
  • Audition techniques

So whether you decide to embark on a traditional drama education or begin with online acting lessons for beginners and see where it takes you, every technique that you master will serve you well for one of the most fundamental activities for every actor 鈥 auditioning!

Sharpen Your Audition Skill with Online Acting Classes

At the end of the day, honing your audition skills is one of the most valuable investments you will ever make as an actor. Not only can an online acting course in audition techniques help to build your confidence, but it can prepare you for the day and teach you how to receive feedback in a way that can improve your future performance.

Here are a few tips that your online acting course tutor might share with you regarding how to prepare for auditions.

  1. Make sure you take a short CV that includes a good photograph.
  2. Rather read the material really well than pretend you have memorised it.
  3. The first 15 seconds are everything.
  4. Being comfortable and confident is everything.
  5. Treat auditions as a necessary practice. Keep going and watch yourself improve.

How to Private Online Drama Classes

Good online drama classes, or online acting lessons for beginners should provide important foundational elements for acting, however, if you already have these you may decide to opt for more specialised training that focuses on a particular technique. This is when a private tutor who is willing to offer online acting classes can really help.

You may be surprised to learn that online acting classes are not that unaffordable at an average cost of R364 per hour. In addition, most Superprof tutors actually offer their first lesson for free which is extremely helpful for many reasons, but especially if you are looking for online acting lessons for beginners and are still figuring out your way around your drama education.

The introductory lesson is a great opportunity to find out if you actually connect with your potential tutor and it is also a good time to find out more about their teaching methods, experience and background.

When you take the time ask them questions as well as making sure that you communicate your own lessons for taking on acting lessons, you potentially save yourself the inconvenience of landing up with the wrong tutor for you. Another way to check out your Superprof tutor before committing to lessons is to read any reviews they may have on their profile page!

Superprof acting tutors range in experience, age and background, and while you can probably have input into tailor making your tuition to suit your own goals, here is a list of some of the techniques that are typically on offer:

  • Stage and television classes
  • Audition preparation
  • Online drama mentorship
  • Improvisation
  • Scene study classes
  • Sight reading

Many people think that acting only requires talent, but in fact it requires a healthy combination of both talent and training. In order to deliver a convincing performance there are many techniques that actors have to use. And there is no doubt, when it comes to honing your techniques, there is no better way to do this than by using a private acting coach or tutor.

Some of the techniques that you can expect to come across in acting classes could include:

  • Method acting
  • The Chekhov technique
  • The Stanislavsky method
  • The Meisner technique

As you can see there is a lot to look forward to, and a lot to learn. Once you have these foundational techniques, you may decide to become an expert in certain genres like action, romance, comedy or thriller acting.

Finally, remember that when searching for online acting classes, do your research and be sure to choose a tutor or online acting lessons through a reputable provider.

If acting is your dream, take that first step today, you never know where it may lead. Break a leg!
