The Academy is committed to a policy of encouraging access to the performing arts and, to help facilitate the huge demand, offers the opportunity of participation to interested applicants to a variety of short courses

These courses offer students a unique opportunity to experience performing arts courses under the direction of our excellent professional staff. Whether taken just for fun or with the more serious intention of pursuing a potential career in the performing arts, courses give a good first insight into the disciplines, achievements and satisfaction of a professional training. 

The duration of courses vary and are designed for all ability levels and are offered to children between the ages of 9 and 16 years and to students from 16+ years. Each participant is given the opportunity to experience a variety of classes. Summer School Performing Arts students may present a workshop style performance at the end of the week at the Academy's 'Avondale' theatre. 

These courses are extremely popular and many students make the experience an annual event. Numbers on courses are limited and places fill extremely quickly. Interested applicants are advised to request details and application forms at the earliest opportunity.

For information on what courses are running this year, please call our head office on 0207 608 0044.
