SUMMER SHORT COURSE PROGRAMME

LSDA offers a number of exciting short courses in the summer months. The courses offer students the opportunity to immerse themselves in an LSDA training.  They will be supported and challenged, acquiring new skills that develop their performances.  Students on the Summer courses will be taught by the same instructors as on our full time Diploma courses and are given access to the same facilities.

The Summer courses are open to anyone over the age of eighteen who may or may not have experience in acting.

The London School of Dramatic Art has on occasion admitted a student to its full-time acting programme after displaying exceptional talent and discipline. Summer students wishing to be considered for admission to full-time courses should consult their summer tutors.
