What I would highlight: I have started studying at Kogan Academy following their evening course. This part time course had exactly what I was looking for and I found it to be the most complete course in London! Teachers help me a lot during my studies and convinced me that I could become a professional actor! Is thanks to them if I decided to enroll on the supplementary Directing course and the training I received was amazing! Thanks to this incredible experience I become a much better actor and director and I also learnt a lot about myself. I would absolutely recommend the Kogan Academy of Dramatic Arts to anyone who is even remotely interested in learning how to act and direct!

What I would highlight: During my very first year at KADA, I was a little nervous since I didn’t know much about the Academy and I have first decided to stay just 1 year. 4 years later, here I am graduating from the Acting and Directing courses with a entirely different point of view towards myself as an artist and the profession itself. Kogan Academy is composed by extremely skilled professionals with experience from all corners of our industry. I am grateful for the endless patience and support from the tutors at the Academy helped me achieve my goals and gain more confidence in my capacities.

What I would highlight: The Science of Acting is grounded, precise and practical. So much acting technique is filled with vague concepts and unworkable ideas while everything important to the creation of character and good acting can be found here. The Science of Acting is the atom bomb of acting techniques.
