About performing arts

Choosing the right course

We offer a substantial and varied mix of activities such as acting, movement, voice, dance, technical theatre and administration, mime, circus skills, stage fighting, magic, comedy, singing, business skills and self-presentation.

Why do students choose to study with us?
You can learn to be an actor/theatre practitioner with our progressive part-time courses developing your imagination, a sense of play and expanding emotionally, meeting and working with like-minded people and being taught by professional theatre practitioners. These skills can also be transferred into other areas of work and business. We are only concerned with individual potential and not a specified ideal, so all are welcome.

General non-certificated courses
We aim to provide an opportunity for adults to explore and develop creative aspects of themselves. Our general programmes of non-accredited courses provide structured pathways of progression with the flexibility to accommodate adults at multiple stages of development. You can choose from a wide variety of courses that don’t require an interview and we are happy to advise you on creating your own balanced programme of learning.
