Act Attack is a new English speaking acting and improv school in Amsterdam that is focusing on 3 basic principles

Learn to act & express yourself

Firstly, our courses help you with personal development and growth, as acting improves your communication skills, raises your mind & body confidence, and unlocks your imagination. In addition, a course helps you overcome stage fright and fear of expressing yourself in public

Learn to InterAct with others

Secondly, during our classes and performances, we will teach you how to connect and communicate better with other people, both in your personal and professional life. Furthermore, with our acting & improv courses you will have the chance to work in a group to improve your teamwork and listening skills. Consequently, this will help you be more responsible, trustful, creative and interactive.

Have fun & make new friends

Finally, you will make new friends! Our students are from all walks of life, and excited to share their experiences and passion for improv and theatre on -and off-stage! As a result, you will laugh & get a boost of energy with our acting games & you can even join our social meetups – we often go together for drinks, activities, retreats & comedy shows.

We are not an everyday Theatre school

We are a multicultural theatre community that offers fun acting & improv courses for everyone who wants to learn how to act, improvise, communicate better and be more creative! Mainly, we see theatre as a tool for personal developent, in a fun way.

You need not be a professional actor, all you need is passion for theatre or just willingness to challenge yourself to a creative activity. Our focus, in particular, is to give a special experience to everybody who is willing to grow through theatre. Therefore, we do not do castings; everybody is welcomed!

What people say about Act Attack

  • “Joining Act Attack was an amazing experience! I really enjoyed the classes and met great people along the way!”
  • “Loved to be a part of Act Attack! Learned a lot about theatre and acting itself. Teacher (Joana) was great as she guided us through the process of acting as a way of communicating with the audience. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants to learn and develop performing skills.”
  • “The idea of Act attack in combination with a talented young director Joana is exactly what Amsterdam has been missing - long term acting and impro workshops for affordable price where you have enough time to immerse yourself in the magic world of acting and open a new horizon of what you can actually create, feel, act.”
  • “Act Attack is a young theatre, that is available for everyone. If you have never had such experience or you have been always dreaming to try a new role, Act Attack is a good and quick start. Joana is a great director, who devotes her energy to help people to open themselves. I find this place valuable for me because of socialisation with like-minded people and skills that I learn there. Success!”
