New for 2022, BOVTS is introducing a masterclass series for adults

The industry is changing and BOVTS is here to equip actors with the toolkit for launching a successful career. The majority of professional castings now require auditionees to self-tape prior to a meeting, and mastering this skill could make a huge difference to your success rate.

During a seven-hour masterclass in the setting of BOVTS’ iconic Downside Road site, industry experts will teach you about the art of self-taping. You will be armed with the required skills to produce a quality, clear and effective performance for your audition panel.

  • 9.30am – 11.30pm Session 1 (2 hours)
  • 11.45pm – 1.15pm Session 2 (90 minutes)
  • 1.45 – 3.45pm Session 3 (2 hours)
  • 4.00pm – 5.30pm Session 4 (90 minutes)

This session is perfect for actors looking to boost their success rate, as well as those auditioning for drama school courses that require a self-tape. Cost £80 – applications close Fri 7 Oct.

Students relaxing outside of the School
The School is in a beautiful part of Bristol, overlooking a huge park called the Downs. We sometimes take advantage of our close proximity to the Downs during the summer term, practising fight and dance routines, or voice or singing classes! Dan Hall, BA Professional Acting student
