UPDATE! New Acting & Impov Courses from January 2020!

Act Attack is a new English speaking acting and improv group 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, the course helps you overcome stage fright and fear of expressing yourself in public

Learn to InterAct with others

Secondly, during our classes and performances, you’ll learn to connect and communicate better, both in your personal and professional life. Furthermore, you will have the chance to work in a group to improve your improvisation and presentation skills. Consequently, you can be more spontaneous, proactive 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 or watch theatre & comedy shows.

We are not an everyday Theatre school

We offer fun acting courses for everyone who wants to learn how to act, improvise, communicate better and InterAct!

You need not be a professional actor, all you need is a passion for theatre. 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 welcome!

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!”
