How do I #DiscoverTheDifference with Performing Arts?
If you dream about being on stage performing, singing, dancing and/or acting for a living, then a performing arts course could be the perfect way to develop your skills and build your confidence. Our courses are designed to help students become ‘triple threat’ performers – skilful in acting, singing and dancing.
What will I study?
Performing arts courses are both practice-based (involving a great deal of actual performance) and academic, which combines practical work with analysis of the background of the subject.
Teaching is delivered through a mix of practical workshops and lectures..
