Our Weekly Classes

We have built an independent theatre school offering quality Acting, Dance and Musical Theatre classes for children and young people in Hull and East Yorkshire. We use our professional training and experience to provide high quality teaching and support to local talent across the region.


Our Acting classes for children aged 7 – 18 years are a fantastic introduction to professional actor training. Pupils explore new acting skills and techniques each week to help them to think on their feet and respond imaginatively to different scenarios through performance.

Musical Theatre
