LAMDA

iampro offers LAMDA Grade classes in solo Acting. In these sessions, learners delve into characterisation and develop strong speaking skills.

ABOUT LAMDA

Our Acting Exam learners develop their vocal, physical and interpretive skills while they delve into characters and explore the background of dramatic texts. Alongside producing authentic performances of their chosen scenes, they also gain an understanding of the context and characters within them.

Working through the grades takes our learners through the development of clear speaking and character portrayal to an understanding of a playwright’s style, the influence of theatre practitioners such as Stanislavski and a sensitive appreciation of subtext. LAMDA exams at grades 6-8 also count towards UCAS points, which can be used when applying to University.

We offer solo exam entry from Grade 1-8. One learner delivers two monologues on their own (three monologues for Grades 7 and 8). You can do your exam online or in person. You will be responsible for the exam entry fee. Click below to view the full syllabus.
