The demand on the performer is ever increasing as the Performance Industry grows.

There is a great need for Musical Theatre and Dance students who have been well trained in dance, singing and acting. We aim to help you achieve this. The stage is continually dominated by musicals and dance companies. 

The Academy offers professional training from teachers who have and still are performing professionally. The emphasis is put on all disciplines equally to make all round performers.

 

All our courses are full time and intensive. At the end of the the 3 years each graduate will have achieved a balanced and complete all round training and be ready to go out and perform professionally with confidence and a style of their own.

 

Class sizes are kept small to enable individual tuition. 

All our courses  offer a 36 hour training week which is over and above the standard hours for each course which enables us to train you to achieve Industry standard upon graduation. 

 

Upon completion of our courses graduates will be equipped with the necessary skills in performance to enter the challenging world of Performing Arts.  Graduates will have developed skills, knowledge and expertise for a long and successful career in the Arts.  EPA is continually proud of its alumni and graduates can be seen in West End Shows, UK Tours, ln cruise liners and gracing our TV screens.
