Junior Academy



The Junior Academy is a tailored programme in acting for talented young actors aged 15-17. Taught by leading professionals, many of whom also teach on the Foundation Diploma in Acting and Theatre and the Bachelor in Acting undergraduate courses at The Lir Academy, the Junior Academy will provide practical experience in Voice (projection, breathing techniques, dialect etc), Acting and Movement, the three cornerstones of conservatoire training and will ultimately provide a platform for further training in acting, theatre or drama.

This intensive course will allow students to develop skills in acting, self-confidence, improvisation, listening and taking direction. Junior Academy is ideal for any teenager who has a passion for all things theatre related and is interested in developing this passion into further training and/or a career. A limited number of places are available on this programme in order to ensure that each student receives the maximum individual attention.

The course curriculum includes training in voice, movement, dialect, acting, ensemble work, Stanislavski’s system and will culminate in a live performance open to family and friends of the participants.

Date, Time and Place

This course runs from September to April every Saturday at The Lir Academy, Pearse Street at Grand Canal Quay, Dublin 2.
