The structure of our teenager TV and Film acting classes is similar to that of the adult classes, however, tailored to be age and ability specific for teenagers.
It is our aim to prepare all students for work as professional film and TV actors. We educate our students to equip them with the necessary skills, tools, knowledge and psychological preparation, which are essential to succeed in the film and TV industry.
Our students are encouraged to be professional, punctual, polite, and reliable throughout their education at YAFTA. Through the classes they will develop team working skills, build confidence and strengthen interpersonal relationships, all whilst embracing their own creativity through acting.
