THE DJW MISSION
DJW believe that building a strong foundation is what will give an actor career longevity. Our training allows students to EXPLORE, EXPERIENCE, EMERGE & ESTABLISH themselves, whilst building confidence and industry knowledge.
DJW have created a clear pathway for studying actors to develop into confident, knowledgable and etiquette ready performers in theatre, television and film. We prepare the actor for castings and deliver a professional development strategy (with hopes to represent) and create opportunities for producing content with our DJW Films department.
The team at DJW Talent are passionate about the development of actors and guiding those who are serious about a career in the business to give them the essential tools which will prepare them for the reality of the industry.
We believe everyone should be coached by someone who has the knowledge and experience of the industry, so all of our tutors have had a substantial amount of training or in the field experience. We also use tutors who have been trained at DJW, so they understand the company ethos, approaches and style. All tutors and employees at DJW are DBS checked.
