DMA offers a wide variety of services for actors of all ages including professional level workshops, elite masterclasses, one to one coaching and mentoring for exceptional and passionate actors.
DMA is not an agency or management company and does not take any commission from an actor’s professional engagements.
As a company DMA has great relationships with numerous agents and top industry professionals, including – casting directors, directors and producers. These relationships offer fantastic opportunities to the DMA pool of talent and supports you on your journey to success. Our opinion on talent is very well respected by industry professionals and we are regularly asked by UK & US casting teams to introduce them to the talent that we work with.
Our aim is to provide actors and parents/guardians with the tools, industry understanding and support to develop your craft and position yourself for success in the professional industry.
We are fully committed to following statutory guidelines for Child Protection and Safeguarding.
All of our coaches and staff have enhanced DBS checks and those working directly with children are also Licensed Child Chaperones.
Working with DMA
We believe consistent training is the foundation of every successful acting career, regular training ensures that as an actor you are completely prepared to deliver your best work when an opportunity should arise. Without this training, success is more difficult to achieve.
Even while engaged in a long running professional production, it is important to continue with training. When required to attend a casting at short notice, actors who have committed to regular training will benefit from an audition prep session a lot more effectively.
