What is the difference between Acting & Improv theatre?

 We believe it’s important to know what are the main differences between Acting and Improv Theater, in order to join one of our theater courses:
1. Acting teaches you how to express yourself honestly and confidently in many different situations and roles. Improv teaches you how to be yourself and tap into spontaneity.

2. Improv helps you to connect with others, while Acting helps you connect with your emotions and thoughts in the way you express yourself physically.

Both Acting and Improv can boost your confidence, improve your listening and communication skills and level up your ability to actively and openly communicate with the world around you.

What do people say about Act Attack?

  • “Joining Act Attack was an amazing experience! I really enjoyed the classes and met great people along the way!”
  • “Loved to be a part of Act Attack! Learned a lot about theater and acting itself. Teacher (Joana) was great as she guided us through the process of acting as a way of communicating with the audience. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants to learn and develop performing skills.”
  • “The idea of Act attack in combination with a talented young director Joana is exactly what Amsterdam has been missing - long term acting and impro workshops for affordable price where you have enough time to immerse yourself in the magic world of acting and open a new horizon of what you can actually create, feel, act.”
  • “Act Attack is a young theater, that is available for everyone. If you have never had such experience or you have been always dreaming to try a new role, Act Attack is a good and quick start. Joana is a great director, who devotes her energy to help people to open themselves. I find this place valuable for me because of socialization with like-minded people and skills that I learn there. Success!”
