Each week we provide high quality education in the field of performing arts to all individuals within our local communities and beyond. Our key provision is aimed at young people, but our services continue to expand in response to demand and our outreach/diversity agenda. The service is completely inclusive and promotes creativity, social & personal development and resilience whilst maintaining our promise of an excellent quality of teaching.
Our classes encompass all areas of the performing arts industry from theatre, TV, radio and beyond. Participants will learn a wide range of skills in acting, singing, dancing, musicianship, improvisation, public speaking, devising, business and much more! We have options for students as young as 3 all the way through to 100 (and more if you’re lucky enough to get there!).

At this point your young person may or may not have a strong idea as to whether or not they wish to continue on in pursuing the performing arts as a potential career option. Our Stage 4 classes continue to boost self confidence as they begin to make their own ideas and choices, as well as give them a more professional performance experience.
Within these classes we also like to push our performers who want the extra challenge; encouraging resilience and confidence.Find out more
