The Sylvia Young Theatre School places great emphasis on high standards and on excellence in the Performing Arts. Our aim is to provide a unique opportunity for students with potential in the performing arts to train and to perfect their skills. Expectations will be high.
The vocational curriculum offered is designed to:
Enable students to develop skill, and confidence in their talent.
Instill the importance of self-discipline and a strong work ethic in achieving success.
Prepare students to progress to further vocational training in the Performing Arts.
Prepare students for the possibility of professional opportunities in the Performing Arts once they have finished their studies.
Vocational classes take place on Thursday and Friday. Students will be exposed to as wide a variety as possible of styles and techniques in the various disciplines, regularly receiving tuition from more than one teacher in a particular subject. We also encourage guest teachers from the profession as we believe this provides our students with invaluable experience.
