Hello and welcome to PQA York. We opened our doors for the very first time on Saturday 5th October 2013 within the fantastic facilities at Huntington School in York. The school's black box drama studio, sprung floor dance studio, large classrooms and multiple performance and filming spaces play host to our very popular main academy (6-18 year olds), and our fantastic Poppets academy (4-5 year olds).
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.
Our superb team of teaching staff, who are all experts in their field, provide classes in Musical Theatre, Comedy & Drama and Film & Television for 6-18 year olds, and our Poppets Academy, dedicated to providing multi-disciplinary lessons for 4-5 year olds. Every member of staff at PQA York are hugely dedicated to inspiring, engaging and motivating the young people who come to the academy, whether they want to simply gain confidence and make new friends, or whether they wish to go further into a career in the performing arts.
As well as these fun-packed, unique and exciting lessons, the students at PQA York have many other fantastic opportunities to look forward to. Masterclasses from West End professionals, stage combat experts, magicians and stage makeup artists (to name but a few!) will further the students' experience at PQA. Our students will also have the opportunity to perform in showcases both at our Academy Venue and externally, perform in London's West End, have their very own film premiere in a York cinema, join our professional agency 'Quirky Kidz', and take part in free Trinity Group exams.
We'd love to meet you and show you around our Academy, so why not get in touch and come along and see us? For more information or to arrange free taster session, please call James on 07753 179070 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can't wait to see you!
