Greenwood Theatre SchoolCaroline’s classes usually begin with a series of physical and vocal warm-ups. She uses a number of teaching strategies and theatre games to increase a student’s confidence,  social skills, vocal skills, concentration, self-awareness and  team co-operation skills,  before moving onto the main body of work.

Caroline is a fully Licensed teacher  with LSMD and is fully insured.  Read More About Caroline

My aim is to develop the performer’s skill set –  for acting, recital or for public speaking.

Caroline will often draw from the Stanislavsky technique for script analysis  and characterisation and  from ViewPoints, a technique developing the physical awareness of the actor. Vocal coaching is covered very thoroughly in the LSMD syllabus.  Finally theatre games especially those of Chrissie Poulter, Viola Spolin and Augustus Boal and the endless Improv games will help children and adults to find an ease of self –expression –  to move towards finding the performers full ability. Ensemble acting/group performance is an incredibly important experience for any actor – developing trust  within a group leads to increased confidence and thus creativity.
