Nine Years Theatre shares these training methods and philosophy with the community through classes and open training platforms.

The classes that NYT often conducts are:

Class Description
Diction of Standard Mandarin This is a basic class for people who want to speak Mandarin with proper diction. It aims to equip participants with the fundamental knowledge of Mandarin pronunciation, such as the correct enunciation of consonants, vowels and tones. It also aims to impart knowledge of standard spoken Mandarin, including ways to vary tones in speech.
Suzuki Method of Actor Training/ Viewpoints Class Both the Suzuki Method of Actor Training and Viewpoints are training methods that require time to sit in the mind and body of a performer. With 2 weeks of class, we aim to impart the format and philosophy of the training to the participants. Participants are welcomed to join our free-of-charge open platform SMAT & Viewpoints Jam thereafter to deepen the training.
Mandarin Speech Techniques This class is for actors who wish to learn the techniques in analysing and performing Chinese text. Participants will work with texts from various genres in order to study elements in speaking Mandarin text, such as stresses, pauses, continuity and emotions. This class teaches the methods of presentation for various genres of texts.
DIRECTING THE SCENE: Master Class in Directing Artistic director of Nine Years Theatre, Nelson Chia, conducts this master class. It aims to share knowledge that will help in understanding the elements that make up a scene, and skills needed in making a scene work. This is a largely hands-on class that requires participants to work with actors on the rehearsal floor in directing exercises.
