About our Part Time courses

Our part time courses are the perfect introduction to our Academy and a chance to learn new skills. Each course is on a different day of the week meaning you can choose to do one, two or all three. All of our courses allow you to gain a qualification through an accredited awarding body.

Part Time Acting (Mondays)

Do you aspire to be an actor? Develop your skills in improvisation, have a go at script work and even get the chance to lead your own workshops. Learn to perform in a fun and supportive environment.

Part Time Dance (Thursdays)

You can also get support and training for other practical skills such as using computers and travelling independently.
