In 2019, Sport for Jove introduces the YOUTH ACTING ENSEMBLE training program. 
 
Our fun, challenging and comprehensive Acting training ensembles are devoted to enhancing young actors’ skills by working on the greatest theatrical works in the English language. Over two terms, each Ensemble will explore the work of Shakespeare in rehearsal-room style workshops. Under the guidance of their industry professional arts educator and director, students will work towards a performance at the end of Term 2 for friends and family. 
 
Applications and auditions for the 2019 Ensembles will be open December 2018. For more information or to apply, please email: francesca.savige@sportforjove.com.au
