The DSL Summer Schools provide you with an exciting and diverse range of classes led by highly experienced professional practitioners.

The aim of these acting courses for adults is to give you a taste of what it is like to attend one of the Federation of Drama Schools. You will have the chance to learn practical acting skills for both stage and screen, learn to use your body and voice confidently, interpret text and make bold character choices. 

As part of the course there will be an opportunity to attend a theatre performance in London (if you are attending the Summer School at DSL) or either Oxford or Stratford Upon Avon (if you are attending the Summer School at Ruskin College, Oxford). 

All directors and practitioners on the summer school are working professionals - so the advice and training they offer is always industry relevant.

There may be many different reasons why you choose to attend - you may be thinking of applying to drama school, wish to develop your presentation skills or simply want to try something completely new. What we can guarantee is that you will take part in a fun-packed range of creative activities.

"Attending a Summer Course at Drama Studio London was a great opportunity for me to be sure that full time training was something I wanted to do. The days were structured in the same way as the full time course and the teaching staff I met taught me on the Diploma too. We covered a lot in a week; breath, voice, preparation of text, improvisation and devising a piece created from scratch. It was good to get a sense of the culture of the school to make sure it suited me. Also, simple things such as being familiar with travel arrangements, the layout of the building and some of the staff before auditioning helped with the nerves. There is a really warm and supportive family atmosphere at DSL. I feel very privileged to have been able to audition at the last minute and take the final slot on the 1 Year Diploma Course. It changed my life in the space of a week!" Sally, 2019 attendee

"The summer course was a great introduction to drama school and the professional training you can expect to receive from studying full time at Drama Studio London. The intensive course definitely gave me a sense of how the school operates with a strong focus on individuality and uniqueness. The staff are incredibly encouraging and genuinely interested in getting to know you as an actor as well as a human being. In two weeks I managed to explore most of the classes that are part of the full time course. The summer course also provided me with some useful tools which helped me prepare for the audition." Helene, 2019 attendee
