A creative, committed environment of learning
At the centre of our teaching philosophy is artistic inquiry and the development of purpose. The ability to examine, express and continually challenge yourself so that you can reach your highest creative potential.
Intensive, hands-on experience with leading teachers, directors, choreographers, designers, production experts and performance-makers working professionally, brings this to life in a collaborative environment of practical and rigorous learning.
