What is LAMDA?
London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art - one of the top three drama schools in the world, offering their own drama exams anywhere in the country for anyone who wants to take them. (aged 4/5 and up).
The Young Actors Company provide the 'verse and prose' exams and 'acting' exams.
Verse and prose - reciting a poem and a piece of prose.
Acting - performing either one or two or three monologues.
What you can learn from doing a LAMDA exam?
Lamda's examinations provide the opportunity to develop a clear speaking voice, positive body language and self-confidence. Line learning with some theory thrown in make up the basic requirements of each exam, but so much more is learnt including -
Presenting yourself in a professional way
Conversing skills (and therefore good interview and audition skills)
Monologues for drama school auditions
Nothing will get you further in life than good communication. LAMDA can start this ball rolling, and, over time, help to create a more confident person.
