How do I join?
Firstly, please show your interest by sending us an email via 'Contact us' on our website. We will then register you to join in one of our Audition sessions
at a non-refundable cost of £25
What will I be expected to do at my audition?
You will join in our Thursday workshops (Junior 4.30-6.00pm or Inter/Senior 6.00-8.00pm, depending on your age) with current students. Although the workshops are designed to be fun, they will also give you an insight to the sort of work we do (improvisation, acting techniques, performance enhancement, confidence building, to name but a few). You will be 'challenged' in the workshop, but all of this is done in a friendly, nurturing environment, and is nothing to worry about! We may also ask you to sing a verse/chorus of a song, but this is often dependent on time. However, if you think that singing is something you do well and you would like us to hear you, please let us know.
What happens after the audition?
We will send you an email, asking you if you enjoyed it and whether or not you would like to join us. Hopefully the answer will be 'Yes' and we will then send you a copy of our terms and conditions.
You need to read this carefully before accepting, and to also bear in mind that at AGF, although we nurture our students, we also challenge them in the work that we give them, after all what's the point of making it too easy, what will they learn? In the end, we believe this will not only improve their 'acting and performance skills', but also go towards building well rounded, self assured individuals. However, this takes time, it isn't achieved over just a few lessons. But with commitment, hard work, courage and a lot of support from parents, the rewards are worth waiting for and you will have a lot of fun getting there! All students are accepted on a trial basis of at least 10 weeks after which there will be an assessment of your childs progress.
When can I join?
Once you have accepted our terms and conditions, you can join our Thursday workshops straight away unless we are in the middle of a 'project', where the next suitable joining date will be given. We also have other lessons that you will be more than welcome to join such as: Singing and Play reading, and once you have been with us for a while, and are old enough, you may be asked to join our Profile lessons, which are by invitation only (all details on our website)
