Children’s Acting Classes for Film and TV – Children and Teenager Acting classes

NFD believe 100% in “Training while Creating”. That is the core philosophy upon which all our actor training is based.

Acting classes for children, teenagers, and young adults In Studio or Online

We teach in three sections

Class 1 6 to 11 (Younger Children) Class 2 12 to 15 (Children’s Acting) and Class 3 16 to 24 (Young People Acting) but please look for the direct links for more specific information in the menu above.

Our philosophy is to let children find their own way, so while building their confidence through the art of learning, teaching something valuable whilst they appreciate the experience. We teach through role-play, script and improvisation which produce skills that are not just valuable to the Film and TV industry but carry through with them for the rest of their lives.

NFD are a friendly team of professionals who have a wealth of experience since 1994 of bringing ideas and skills into a happy environment, to ensure rapid and confident development for all our students
We try and cater for all children especially if they are interested in acting or feeling a little lost so, please no matter what their ability, or what your circumstances are because we are here to fulfil your child’s interest so, please call and have a chat. We welcome everybody.

Confidence building.

Most parents send their children to NFD to gain confidence because through drama, role play, poetry, public speaking, Shakespeare we equip them with skills to help them develop their own individual personality. It is encouraging to see them grow into happy, outgoing, confident young people and the process for us is very rewarding and we feel privileged to help them along a little of their journey in life.

How we can help!

We now offer coaching in audition technique, self-confidence, script reading and acting exams online.

We can also help with technical support for filming, lighting, sound and at the same time advise you on how to upload self-tapes taking the pressure off the whole process.

Submitting a self-tape

When you are asked to submit a self-tape at the last minute it can be very daunting!

We can help you in the first instance by giving that extra bit of coaching making your self tape stand out! In the second instance we can advise you on the technical aspect whether it is how to film, light or get the best possible sound from your tape and the third how to upload your tape successfully! Or in the event you can’t we will do it for you.

Specific requirement

If there is anything you specifically require, please ask. Staff are trained in all aspects of film and tv training and will help you with any issues regarding techniques, that little bit of extra that is missing or maybe you’re completely new to this and just need a little bit of reassurance and a step-to-step guide through the whole process!

One to one tuition in house

If you require one to one sessions, please enquire for more details. All one-to-one lessons are charged at the full rate unless being tutored by our trainee students. Please see below.

Trainee students who are in training and working towards their teaching qualifications take lessons under supervision at a reduced fee. Please enquire for more information. We usually tutor from one to two students in half an hour session.
This works well with individuals, siblings and friends. To book separate sessions in advance please email aconnew@gmail.com

We welcome and teach all English-speaking students anywhere in the world and would love to hear from you.

Free workshops

We are looking to offer some free workshops once a month for a few students who have an interest in acting but have no experience. Please look out for these when advertised. (Northern Film and Drama twitter account) It will based on a first come first served basis. It is only for students who has never attended NFD before.

NFD teach in smaller classes in order to provide a safe friendly environment that promotes confidence in all our students from the start.

What the students say!

NFD has brought my confidence on especially in the script reading sessions as it has helped me a lot with getting up at school and reading aloud. I have just had an audition recently which was advertised over the whole of the UK and I got the part. I put this down to Alyson and her team who has helped me to believe in myself.

Ellie

I really enjoy the lessons; they have taught me about television acting skills. I have attended other schools, but they do not teach you this only theatre acting. Also, it really helped me by being in one of NFD film productions One Fatal Moment. I really enjoyed the experience and learnt all the words that they use on set such as action, cut, a take, close up and many more besides. It has been really useful. I have just received a distinction for Grade 4 which has made me feel proud of myself.

Isobelle

 

I have only been attending NFD for a few months and I have already achieved a high merit for my acting exam. I was very nervous at first, but Alyson and the other students made me feel really welcome. My confidence has grown, and I have been learning about interview technique which is very interesting, and I think it is going to help me in the future.

UNIQUE Children / Teenager Acting Classes

We are truly unique in that we provide “Real World” Film and TV acting classes. Our aim is to get STUDENTS on camera and being an actor from day one. We have our own purpose-built STUDIO with green screen, 3D and other up to date film and TV technical facilities and believe this is one of only a very few outside of London. We are also a film and TV production company based in Leeds, which means because of our facilities we are able to put students in a realistic acting environment from day one.
