There are a number of ways to exercise your love of acting and drama when you’re travelling on your gap year. Acting abroad is a great way to gain some unique work experience with a number of programs focusing on theatre, film or production available to you in many different countries.
You can take part in a local theatre production and indulge your love of acrobatics, dance, acting or even mime. You may also have the opportunity to teach a class, helping at-risk teenagers break out of the cycle of violence and anti-social behaviour. Some gap year travellers may wish to document the magnificent landscapes they pass with an international film placement where practical film-making skills for documentaries to big budget movies are taught and enhanced. Screen writing is also another popular option for creative young gappers.
So what is to stop you from acting abroad? There are many acting and drama opportunities to take advantage of when you’re on your gap year so make sure you check out your options.
