English speaking Acting Courses (4-5 Μonths)

Join Next Course

UPDATE! The next courses start in February 2019!

Act Attack is a new English speaking Theatre Group in Amsterdam that is focusing on 3 basic principles

Express yourself

Learning to Act & Express yourself

We are here to help you grow as a person by improving your expression skills, overcoming your fears of exposing to public, raising your self-confidence & imagination. To help you connect & communicate with your friends and your colleagues, in your personal & professional life.

Learning to InterAct with others

And here comes the most challenging part. During our classes & performances, we all work together to improve our team working & improvisation skills. We use Improv as one of our basic techniques, because it helps you be more spontaneous, trustful, proactive & interactive.

Having Fun

During our courses, you can make new friends – our members are always multicultural, with whom you can share the same passion in & out of the stage! You will laugh & get a boost of energy with our acting games & you can join our social meetups (Beer & Movie Attacks 😉 ).

We are not a common Theatre school

We offer Fun Acting Courses for everyone who wants to learn how to Act, Express & InterAct!

With Act Attack you won’t become a professional actor or graduate as an actor. Our target group is Amateur Actors who are willing to Grow.

You have a business? Contact us and we can offer you a nice Improv team building class!

Practical information about the courses

What do we offer?

Long -Term Acting Courses (4-5 months) which include theater acting exercises & improvisation games blended nicely together with preparing theatre performances on stage.

All the classes are taught by experienced & friendly theater directors, with excellent interaction & communication skills. For the rehearsals, we rent comfortable studios, in the West & East part of Amsterdam. For the performances, we rent big & inspiring Theatre spaces with capacity 80 to 200 people as audience.

Time & Duration of the Courses

Our Courses start on September & on February each year. Each Course lasts 15 to 20 weeks (= 4 to 5 months) & takes place once a week, 19.00-21.00.

We believe in Long-Term courses, because they give you enough time to grow, learn & build stronger relationships with your co-members.

Costs & Requirements

150 to 200 euros per person all inclusive ( = only 7 to 9 euros per week). Discounts available for Early birds & BYF (Bring Your Friend). Cancellations/refunds are not possible (there are exceptions).

A Course, is a series of weekly classes that requires commitment  from our members. We are based on team work, bonding and interaction to succeed. Therefore, if you choose for example Mondays, you should come every Monday. It’s important not to miss more than 15% of the classes. This will give the director enough time to prepare the group for a nice performance 😉

That’s all we need from you! And we take care of the rest.

Please do not hesitate to send us a line and we will contact you asap.


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!”
