Class Descriptions

Lamda Exams

LAMDA stands for The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts.  The aim of Lamda exams is to increase confidence and self esteem.  The LAMDA Entry Level Award in Performance: Acting is designed to introduce learners to basic acting skills. Learners will perform one scene from memory, audibly and clearly. They will be able to show that they understand the meaning of what they are speaking. Their use of space will complement their performance.  Learners work on monologues either on their own or in groups.  The students work their work from Entry Level to Grade 8.  In the later grades students can gain UCAS points that count towards grades for university.
