2. About the Workshops:


Evening classes:


next one: 12th of march in Cape Town


Take a journey into the fascinating world of acting, film and theater!

Discover and deepen you acting and improvisation skills on a fun and exciting evening in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere, where you will laugh a lot.


The aim of all my workshops is to create a space, where people can be totally themselves and explore and enhance their individual gifts and every being has an abundance of those!


Acting skills are and asset for everyone, as they are powerful tools for deeping ones understanding of oneself and human nature in general. Not just in theory, but by experience.

They strenghten communication and presentation skills and give insight into behaviourismns.

They also help for being relaxed, authentic and centered when relating to others.


In the evening class you will be able to try out various acting exercises and improvisations, create new characters (and find new ones within!)and also learn a warm up routine to use before performances or presentations , which enhances your voice and breathing in daily life.


You will discover new skills, enter new worlds & have a lot of fun!

Below a few pictures of the Workshop

"I enjoyed immensely Corinna Manisha Lenneis’s acting workshop. Her teaching style is very unique, fun and productive. She incorporates a deep yet playful approach towards acting.
Her direction is firm, insightful and allows us actors to comfortably tap into a wide range of emotions and most import of all our vulnerable spaces."
