Our students work with the best in the business and learn things they wouldn't find anywhere else! We arrange visits from specialist tutors and professionals at the top of their relative fields to deliver a range of masterclasses for our students. These tutors run sessions for us often between their work on well-known TV programmes, Hollywood movies, West End shows and music videos.

Our Classes

How to be a TV Presenter - TV presenting is much harder than it looks! This masterclass introduces our students to the foundation skills needed to eventually become a TV presenter, led by an industry professional who presents for a major UK broadcaster.

Stage and Screen Combat - An essential skill for any actor! This workshop looks at the basics of stage and screen combat. Students learn the techniques actors use to make a fight scene between characters seem convincing, whilst remaining completely safe.

Screen to Stage Makeup Transformations - This masterclass gives students the opportunity to produce a fantastical make up transformation into their favourite on-screen characters.

Magic - Students learn how a magician interacts with an audience and the variety of methods used when performing magic. They are also taught that the performance of an effect is just as, if not more important than the actual effect itself.

Rap & Poetry - This is a workshop in which students are taught simple techniques that they can use to plan and structure both rap lyrics and poetry.

Musical Theatre – We have a range of masterclasses available from West End performers who have been in shows including Hairspray, Wicked, Les Misérables and Matilda to name a few.

Roald Dahl – This masterclass opens with a play that looks at the power of imagination and storytelling. This interactive show is followed by a workshop design to show students how they can turn the mundane everyday into the magical and memorable.
