I have attended acting lessons in north London with a casting director who has 15 years experience and have learnt a number of key skills in the process. The lessons were well directed as we did lots of role play either with one other person or in a group situation where we had to interact with each other. We also had to mime certain scenes which was fun to do. The lessons were an hour and a half with plenty of feedback from the director after a lesson on what was good and also what could be improved. Have attended a one day acting workshop in Cardiff too.
