From Our Students

“YAA provides opportunities that challenge me and motivate me to improve within a supportive yet challenging environment. It is a place that promotes truth and allows me to gain a larger understanding of both myself and other aspects of my life. I am learning to approach acting in a whole new way.”

Adam Dakin - 18yrs

Accepted into Queensland University Technology 3 Year BA Acting 2020

I believe [the Young Actors Assembly’s] approach to not only acting, but the individual within the actor is unlike any other program I have ever studied with. YAA focuses on a specific method of acting that I have found can be used throughout not just all areas of acting but of real life as well. YAA teaches the key to art and being an actor whilst also developing a community of young likeminded individuals within its walls.

Received 'scholarship for acting excellence' - Queensland University Technology (QUT) 3 Year BA Acting 2020

“After the Advanced Technique class I go home and think to myself, “I’ve truly learnt so much about acting, the world, and other people.” I’ve been to other acting studios and I’ve found the environment competitive, but at YAA we celebrate each others success. The process that David teaches is specific and it has given me the freedom to make choices in the moment. I recently used the technique in the audition room and was lucky enough to land the role.”

 “YAA has given me the tools to fine tune my knowledge of acting. I have learnt how to be disciplined and brave not only within the walls of the studio but within my own life. We are taught to ‘deeply listen’ which has influenced the way I communicate with others, in castings and in professional settings. The essence of YAA’s acting process is based on ‘honesty’ and thanks to YAA I can be totally honest with myself and know that anything is possible.”
