Running on Monday and Thursday evenings in central Bath, the course is uniquely designed for students looking to get an edge with their training - whilst still continuing with their daytime studies at college/school or employment. Students are given individual attention, and for 6 hours a week receive focussed training from experienced performing arts lecturers and practitioners. It is one of the only courses in the area to give equal weight to all three disciplines - with time being split equally between singing, dancing and acting.
Entry onto the course, which runs in line with the academic year from September to June, is by audition only - with the minimum age requirement being 16 years old.
Our aim is to give students an introduction into the skills, commitment and hard work required in full-time training establishments - allowing talent to flourish and enable them to #takethenextstep.
