Empower Arts acting classes for teens

Acting classes to empower your teens!

Empower Arts offer fantastic acting classes for 12-18 year olds who want to work professionally within the acting industry.

At Empower Arts, they look at a new film/ TV show each month and the students learn scenes from the chosen show. They then workshop these scenes until the teens feel performance ready. They also create mini films in class, along with green screen, podcasts and debating political hot topics along the way. This is not just an acting class, it’s being part of a team!

The skills that the teens learn in these acting classes are something they can take with them into their futures. And some previous students have gone on to work for some exciting places, including: Netflix, Marvel, BBC and ITV, as well as on commercials and other campaigns.

Empower Arts is led by Natalie, who is an Ivana Chubbuck trained acting coach with over 20 years of experience teaching drama and performing on stage, TV and film, as well as writing and directing.

Classes run weekly on Saturdays between 2-5pm in Waterloo, London.

Classes are charged at £150 monthly but check out below for a special EEK Member offer!

What people are saying

“The amazing thing about this class and the technique is that it isn’t just an acting class; it’s a being class, really. It doesn’t just help with acting skills, but it helps with everyday life – you can offload whatever you want when you’re there, whether it’s in conversation or during a scene. It’s exciting and mind-expanding and brilliant.”

– Charlie Banks

“Charlie always looks forward to his drama sessions with Natalie. Whatever has been going on in the world, the group has been a haven of fun, inspiration and thoughtful debate. Natalie has been so much more than a drama coach. A life force who makes the teens think and a reliable support – so often missing at this age.”

– Claire Large

“CYU and Natalie have really helped me to work outside of my comfort zone. The family feel we have created makes us all feel super comfortable and excited to learn, work and perform together!”

– Beth Fulton

“My daughter joined Chubbuck Youth in February 2020 and it quickly became the highlight of her week.  She has grown in confidence and skill whilst making great friends and improving her acting techniques.  Natalie has been an inspirational teacher and mentor, providing support and guidance in a fun, engaging and sensitive manner.” 

– Catherine Fulton

“My confidence has been boosted enormously and my acting has become so much more authentic than it used to be!”

– Naomi Abberley

“CYU coaching has proven transformational for my daughter; not only has her confidence increased markedly, but her performances now carry real authenticity as she draws on analogous real life experiences to drive her delivery.”

– Paul Abberley
