Mime Orientation Course

Twice a year, the Mime School organizes an orientation course that offers aspirant students the opportunity to follow 12 three-hour weekly lessons and acquaint themselves with the discipline of mime and the study programme. After a warming-up, the lessons use role playing among other techniques to focus on physical consciousness and use of space during which the thrill of performing is important. Mime School applicants are advised to first follow a series of orientation lessons. It’s important to enroll in time because these courses are quickly fully booked!
