The actor has to develop his body. The actor has to work on his voice. But the most important thing the actor has to work on is his mind.

– Stella Adler


Drama School Mumbai is thrilled to announce 2021’s ONLINE Foundation Skills in Acting Courses

Actors are trained, not born – and just like you would train rigorously for careers in engineering or medicine, you can LEARN the right tools for your craft. The Foundation Skills for Acting (FSA) programme at the Drama School Mumbai has been curated for just such a purpose – training the body, voice, mind and soul. The ultimate aim is to build a strong base that can be adapted to any context, performance or stage.

Key Deliverables:

  • Learn how to unleash your untapped potential as an actor
  • Understand the basics of acting and performance, and build your own toolkit for stage and screen
  • Step into the shoes of your characters, physically, mentally, and emotionally

* Note: we believe there is an actor inside each one of us – we welcome people from all walks of life to begin their journey into acting. Thus, this workshop is open to all, no prior experience needed.

You can sign up for any one workshop, or all of them – your choice!
