LAMDA AT BSB

EXAMS IN ACTING, VERSE AND PROSE, AND MORE...

What are LAMDA exams?

LAMDA exams are an accredited qualification in theatre and dramatic arts, examined by one of the UK's top drama schools, the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA).

Every year, EYT prepares over 100 students for their LAMDA exams, from the ages of 6 to 18. As they begin their LAMDA journey, students can learn to perform short monologues and poems, working their way up to classic texts and complex modern works when they reach the higher grades.

There are exams in Acting, Verse and Prose, Devising Drama and Public Speaking! These qualifications contribute points to your UCAS application for British universities, and are recognised worldwide as valuable experience which can added to your CV or university application!

Exam Subjects

Acting

Acting Exam learners develop their vocal, physical and interpretive skills while they delve into characters and explore the background of dramatic texts. Alongside producing authentic performances of their chosen scenes, they also gain an understanding of the context and characters within them.

Speaking Verse and Prose

Verse and Prose learners develop a whole host of skills, from speaking clearly and using voice projection, to improving memorisation and building an understanding of poetry and prose which supports studies in English literature. As learners progress through the levels they interact with the texts, responding to them with imagination and using body language and expression to engage an audience.  

Speaking In Public

Speaking in Public exams prepare our learners for a task that daunts so many people. Learners write their own speeches, researching the topics, creating visual aids and presenting them from memory (although they can use notecards, if they prefer). As they progress through the grades they will develop the ability to speak clearly and project their voice for an audience. They’ll discover the techniques they require to engage an audience and to structure their speech effectively.

Weekly youth theatre classes

EYT provides weekly classes all over Brussels, and further afield, where students aged 6 to 18 can perform in high quality theatre productions, make new friends who love theatre too, and build their confidence in a safe and free environment. We have locations in Stockel, Woluwe (Roodebeek), Uccle (Bascule), Ixelles (Flagey), Waterloo and Antwerp.

Find out more about our weekly classes on our Youth Theatre page, or find a class in your area on our Class Locations page.

Award-winning theatre - EYT+

EYT+ is our annual course for students who want to take drama seriously. This group takes the form of an annual high-level, serious production where participants get to perform in larger theatres (or touring productions in smaller theatres), creating theatre that rivals any of the English-speaking adult groups in Brussels. Last year's EYT+ show, Chaos, won 3rd Place at an international theatre festival in Frankfurt, and bagged a Best Actress nomination for BSB student Ruby May!

Find out about this year's show, Lord of the Flies, on our EYT+ page!

International exchange programs

As well as our usual curriculum of theatre performance and skill building, EYT also offers International Exchange Programs with other youth theatre groups during the holidays. In 2023, we welcomed a group from Norway to Brussels, and led a one-week theatre workshop building skills in improvisational theatre and character-building, as well as learning about each other's cultures through exploring Belgium, playing games and hosting activities together.
