Course testimonials:

  • said: Goldele was a great tutor. The rooms were a bit cramped and dirty

  • said: The course was a lot of fun but also gave students a safe space to explore their acting skills and test their limits, gradually building week by week. The teacher was always respectful and encouraging, and I can’t wait for the Level 2 course next year.
