The Laine Theatre Arts Foundation Diploma is an intensive 28 week course. It is designed for students who are 16 + years who have either auditioned unsuccessfully, or who simply do not feel ready to take up a place on a performing arts diploma or degree course.
Throughout their time on the Foundation Course, students are given comprehensive teaching to build a strong technical skill base and are offered individual guidance towards their chosen career path.
The training on the Foundation Course is mentally and physically intense and students are pushed to make the quickest possible progress from the outset. Auditions can begin as early as February, and therefore the steepest learning curve must be undertaken within the first term of the students' training.The drive to progress and improve comes from the student and is mirrored in the determination of the tutors to help him or her reach their potential. Days on the course are filled to capacity with a full timetable of dance, acting and singing classes, as well as audition and interview technique workshops.
By the end of the course each student should feel completely prepared for the audition process and secure in their ability to cope with the demands of a three year vocational performing arts programme.
Student progress is continuously overseen by the Course Director who holds regular tutorials and individual feedback sessions. A typical day starts at 8am and finishes at 6.15pm.
