Online Introduction Workshop to The Art of Teaching Acting

Here’s your chance to learn from one of Australia’s most respected Master acting teachers. 

Actors Centre Australia (ACA) is launching Dean Carey’s new book, THE ART OF TEACHING ACTING. Dean is ACA’s founder with 40+ years’ experience, training more than 250,000 students internationally.

To celebrate, we’re inviting drama teachers to attend Introduction to The Art of Teaching Acting Workshop on Monday, 13 May from 7:00-8:30pm via Zoom.

The Art of Teaching Acting is not just another acting method or technique, it’s a one-of-a-kind training manual. A remarkable resource published by World Scientific, it will become every drama teacher’s go-to book. Get powerful, practical tools and systems for developing and enhancing a culture of creative achievement in every performing arts teaching environment. 


During this Introductory Workshop, Dean will share the philosophy and practical approach of Actors Centre Australia.

The Art of Teaching Acting is every teacher’s “what, why and how”.

WHAT do actors need to learn at this precise moment?
WHY do they need to learn it at this precise moment?
HOW best can I provide them with the most beneficial practical experience and deepest level of understanding?


“This book is a practical, deeply personal, and precise guide for anyone wishing to give
students of theatre, at any level, meaningful experiences.” — Robert Benedetti, Member of the College of Fellows of the American Theater. 3 Emmy Awards and a Peabody Award. 

“This inspirational and practical book helps actors open up their creative lives in a concise and easy to understand way. I love Dean’s passion for teaching and recommend all actors check this out as part of their creative journey.” — Margie Haber, International Hollywood acting coach, podcaster and writer. 

“Fascinating exercises, absolutely practical and easily applied to the most sophisticated or simple texts. I was deeply struck by how much Dean’s personality resonates throughout.” — Scott Hicks, Emmy, Peabody & twice AACTA Award winner. 

“In this extraordinary book, Dean shares the insights and distinctions behind what fuels
his work, and which drive his school. I’m forever grateful that this knowledge has stayed
with me across my life and career.” — Hugh Jackman, Emmy and Tony Award winner. Academy Award and British Academy Award nominee, appointed Companion of the Order of Australia
