ONLINE MIME COURSES

These courses are carefully conceived to make you learn basic mime techniques at home, anywhere in the world.

We know that a video can’t replace the pysical presence of a teacher in the flesh, or even the relationships and collaboration with other students.
However, online courses have the great possibility to worldwidely diffuse Mime culture, giving you a full curriculum even if there is no good mime courses near you.

They are useful if you want to have an idea of what mime is and can become in your hands, or if you want to practice and review something you already learned.

These course are led in English with Italian subtitles. They are hosted on the e-learning platform Udemy.
