2019 Course Testimonials

“I’ve learned so much from the Ensemble course at The Hub. It’s been such an amazing experience to work with these amazing coaches and practitioners that I have always wanted to work with but haven’t had the opportunity, unless I attended a three year course at drama school” Laneikka Denne

“Committing to working on the craft every week, twice a week for 12 months with the Hub teachers has not only allowed for tremendous growth as a person and as an actor, it has lifted my abilities, opened doors to work I would not have thought possible and formed wonderful friendships.”  Tsu Shan

“This course has opened my eyes to a whole new way of discovering the truth about yourself and how you can use that to create truly moving and believable characters. This program and the coaches are truly amazing and I would recommend it to anyone.” Aiden McKenzie 

“Getting to spend two days a week, every week for 40 weeks with the country’s finest acting coaches has been a joy and immeasurably valuable. Life gets busy right? Well, the Ensemble course fits my lifestyle while allowing me to pursue my passion for acting with the kind of dedication it requires. I always have time for great teachers, great classmates and a great institution. Taking on this course is honestly one of the best decisions of my life.” Joshua Mehmet 



The 2019 Sydney Ensemble members Josh, Laneikka and Emily were recently interviewed about their time on the course and what they learned. Take a listen!
