THE FULL STORY...
ACTAcademy UK was established in the spa town of Harrogate in 2007, and is now the area's largest and only Ofsted Registered Theatre School.
The school specialises in providing Triple Threat Training (Drama, Singing and Dance) through weekly, after school, or weekend workshops. Our educational and inspirational ethos and passion for what we do is evident in our thriving performing arts centre buildings, our bright, energetic, committed pupils and our visionary and highly experienced staff team.
We are delighted to offer our unique training in our own fantastic dance and drama centre, with superb rehearsal spaces, resources and studio facilities with industry-standard equipment for professional stage and screen training.
We highly recommend that you visit us, to really experience and see for yourself what is actually available in the local area for your young person when it comes to acting, singing, dance, public speaking, or other creative and performing arts subjects. We always offer a free trial session too.
You are welcome to pop in on open studio days, or CONTACT US to book an appointment – we'd love to show you around.
ACTAcademy UK Theatre School is a wonderfully welcoming, vibrant and forward-thinking place to learn the art of performance. Our wonderful team are dedicated and driven to providing the best possible experiences, tuition and opportunities for all our students, whom we treat as unique and valuable.
Whether you are looking for a fun hobby for yourself or your child (and in our opinion, this is simply one of the absolute best!) or a potential career in the performance industry, making the decision of where to train is a very important one.
Whilst tuition fees play a part, you should feel confident that you or your child will not be taught bad habits, and that the investment is a worthwhile one, with full progression opportunities. At ACTAcademy, we believe it is important that our pupils are at the centre of everything we do; you can be sure to be treated as an individual, personally nurtured and professionally guided. ACTAcademy also prides itself on being fully Ofsted registered, which gives you peace of mind that rigorous safeguarding and protection of our pupils is at the heart of our school.
At ACTAcademy, we firmly believe that a teacher should be trained as a teacher and not only be excellent at their craft. Regardless of the performance exposure they have had, how to effectively teach children and young people in itself is a specialist subject that should be valued highly - and here, it is. All staff are CRB/DBS checked, fully insured, trained in teaching techniques and absolute masters of their specialism. There is also always a paediatric first aider on the premises at all times.
