Acting masterclasses with Associated Studios run regularly throughout the year. They take on various formats, including Q&As, seminars and workshops which are hosted by eminent directors, theatre practitioners and performers.

Previous workshops have been led by Peter Kosminsky, Hugh Grant, Patrick Stewart, Richard Eyre, Timothy West, Jeremy Irons, Melly Still, Maria Aitken, Rory Bremner, Sir Tim Rice and many more.

I passionately believe that professional actors should NEVER stop their training! In the UK the graduation from drama school signals the end of training. It takes a very short time for professional actors to develop bad habits and these, unknowingly, become embedded. We can become lazy! An actor expresses through mind, body and voice. Each must ALWAYS be finely tuned. Impossible without continued check-ups and hard ongoing work. The Associated Studios provides the professional performing artists with the opportunity for such training work to continue. It is not only necessary but invaluable.
