Short Courses

Upcoming Short Courses

At OSD we run online and in-person short acting courses at the School to build your experience and confidence as an actor. Tutors on the courses are either part of the School’s acting faculty or are industry professionals with a wealth of experience.

Our short courses for this coming year will be available to book from late September.
Please sign up for the newsletter to receive notification of when these are open for booking.

Please note: Online courses are designed for actors over the age of 17+ only. In-person courses are for 18+ years only.
All applicants will be considered but group sizes are limited so we recommend that you apply as early as possible to secure a place.
