Learn how to be clown and entertain your audience with our acting & drama courses in Sydney!

This short course, taught by Jeromaia Detto, will be an all-in-one exploration of clown with a focus on play, freedom and pleasure. You’ll be introduced to a variety of clowning techniques and skills, all in all giving you an insight in how to be more comfortable, open and present on stage.

These skills and techniques are the foundation stones of great comedy. There is fun to be had all around us, at every corner, in every moment — especially on stage. You’ll be equipped with the tools and techniques to not only find the fun, but also to follow it!

With no theatre experience required, this course will help dust off the creative cobwebs, build confidence, and help you be (just a little bit) silly.

Follow Your Fun! No scary clowns involved!
