Darlo Drama is the home of beginner acting classes in Sydney. In this student spotlight interview we sit down with Level One, beginners acting graduate Jamon David who is new to Darlo Drama and now a part of our community!
What made you decide to sign up for a beginners acting class at Darlo Drama?
I’ve seen and loved a few performances at Darlo and saw the beginners course and thought “why not!”
If someone was deciding to come to Darlo for the first time, what would you tell them?
You're going to have more fun than you realise and get some great insights on acting skills and techniques.
We are proudly the home of beginners acting since 1992 making confidence and creativity our aim for students - what areas of your life do you think this approach has helped you with?
I feel that creativity helps me tackle a range of hurdles in my personal and professional life and once you overcome said hurdles your confidence builds.
Particularly when you’ve come up with a creative solution to a problem you might have thought was “too big”. It was great to see that some of the people in our course were there through their work to help give them a new range of skills that they could incorporate into their working lives.
Have you done anything like an acting course before?
I've done therapy! Does that count?
What was it like to perform to family and friends on the Darlo Theatre Stage?
I was quite excited. We were all well prepared and ready to go by the time it came to the performance. There is nothing like the thrill of showing off all your hard work too.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
It was great to get to know the other people in the course, their backgrounds, motivations and perspectives. We all got along really well too.
Thanks so much for being part of our student spotlight Jamon, its been great having you as part of the Darlo Drama community!
