Why do students choose to study with us?

You can learn a wide range of performing arts skills with our progressive, flexible part-time courses design to develop your imagination, sense of play and self-expression, meeting and working with like-minded people and being taught by practisint performing artists. These skills will enhance your life and can be transferred into other areas of work and business. Everyone is welcome: we are only concerned with individual potential and not a specified ideal.

General courses

Our non-accredited courses provide structured pathways of progression with the flexibility to accommodate adults at any stage of development.
