PQA York is a dedicated performing arts Academy, with classes for children and young adults in Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre (singing & dancing) and Film & Television. PQA York provides drama tuition, dance school, singing classes and filmmaking training all under one roof!

Our York academy operates from Huntington School every Friday from 4.45pm-8pm and Saturday from 9.45am-1pm & 1.45pm-5pm where we welcome students from 4-18 years within the City of York; Huntington, Haxby, Heworth, Fulford, Dringhouses, New Earswick, Osbaldwick and Dunnington to name just a few! PQA York also welcome lots of students each weekend from slightly further afield; Malton, Tadcaster, Selby and more!



Principal note:

As Principal of the Academy, I am extremely passionate about providing high quality, professional and up-to-date performing arts tuition, as well as offering the opportunity for young people to build confidence, learn life skills and make new friends. At PQA York, we ensure all of this takes place in a fun, safe and happy environment.
