Senior Classes

Acting, singing & dancing classes (for ages 12 - 18 years)

The clear objectives for our Senior Classes are personal and creative development.

We create outstanding opportunities for aspiring young actors, singers and dancers to develop skills that will serve them well both on stage and in life.

We deliver this through a professionally designed program of classes, workshops, presentations, drama productions and main stage concerts.
