It’s been a challenging few months for all of us, and first and foremost, we hope you're well and are enjoying the easing of lockdown, if you are able to do so. We’re working hard from our homes (our new behind-the-scenes), to give you the possibility of experiencing a handful of our short courses online, so you can continue to explore your talent with us, whilst staying safe.

We are running online versions of some of our acting short courses. What's more, we hope to confirm 2021 dates as soon as possible.

Due to government guidelines, we are currently not accepting applications for any in-person courses, including theatre production.
