Lyn A Dade, Administrative Director
Lyn trained at RADA in the late 60s and worked as an actor, mainly in TiE, for a couple of years before drifting sideways into an alternative career in communications, marketing and fund-raising - a career which, with parenthood, occupied her for the next 25 years.
In 1997, with the Big Five Oh staring her in the face and an awareness of much 'unfinished business', she got her Equity card back, joined the Actors' Centre, and signed up for the scariest acting course she could find - A Weeklong Introduction to the Meisner Technique, with Scott Williams. She's been working with - and, since 2001, for - Scott ever since.
She began administering The Impulse Company in 2001 and to teach in 2002 - taking the approach that she, as an actor, would share what she knew and what she'd discovered with other actors.
Since beginning work for the Company, she's seen it grow into France, the US and Australia and to offer a Year course as well as a variety of discrete courses.
