BOVTS is also introducing a series of masterclasses for adults, starting with our self taping masterclass. 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.
