Your acting career starts here

The East London Academy of Dramatic Art is an independent acting conservatoire. Our courses have been developed to appeal to emerging actors as well as those at other stages of their professional careers who want to maintain and sharpen skills and techniques.

Our approach is focused on physically grounded voice, movement and text-based training. We teach a rigorous attitude to work and you will learn directly from successful professionals who can help you achieve and make the most of your acting potential.

We understand the realities of managing a busy working life. That’s why we have designed our acting courses and drop-in labs to run on weekdays, evenings and weekends, as well as over half-term periods or on consecutive days.
