Cours Florent is a world-renowned, multidisciplinary drama school, founded 50 years ago, in 1967, by François Florent. The school offers acting courses both in French and English. Students are also given the opportunity to study music and musical theater. Cours Florent focuses on each individual student to nurture and develop skills and acting potential.
The school also offers a three-year program in English, called “Acting in English”, for English-speaking students and foreigners, as well as short courses in personal presentation for students from other Galileo Global Education network schools.
At Cours Florent students have the chance to not only refine their dramatic acting skills, but also to experience immersion in the cultural and artistic life of France. The school boasts an impressive alumni roster, including Isabelle Adjani, Daniel Auteuil and Audrey Tautou.
