Why Acting with Ilaria

“Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.” Meryl Streep

In this online acting course for beginners by our teacher Ilaria, you will explore acting techniques and tools in 12 one-to-one lessons. With the help of Ilaria, you will work on finding your freedom in different characters and roles. It will be great fun to learn different facial expressions and the conscious use of voice and body. During the sessions, you will be provided with a lot of material, feedback and tips that will make you see results very fast. The advantage of the one-to-one lesson is that the lessons will be tailor made for you because everyone is different and needs a specific area of attention! After the class, you will have a different perspective when watching a movie – or theatre – performer “in action” but most of all, you will see how rewarding it is to be one.

What is the difference between Acting & Improv theatre?

 Before you choose the best course for you, it’s important to know what are the main differences between Acting & Improv theatre:
1. Acting teaches you how to express yourself honestly and confidently in many different situations and roles, and Improv teaches you how to be yourself and tap into spontaneity.

2. Improv helps you to connect with others, and Acting helps you connect your emotions and thoughts with the way you express yourself physically.

Both Acting & Improv can boost your confidence, improve your listening and communication skills and level up your ability to actively and openly communicate with the world around you.

  • “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.”
    Irina
    Member
  • “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!”
