Theatre and Dance Studios
Theatre and Dance have been an influential factor in many of our students' lives. Our purpose-built Theatre and Dance studios allow creativity to flourish, student collaborations and a means of self-expression that can be developed.
In our Theatre Studio and 'Black Box' style theatre, our students benefit from exploring the unexplored, but also shedding the inhibitions associated with performing in front of an audience. Performers and set designer can also test their mettle for real in our 'Black Box' style theatre. With flexible seating for up to 100, the studio theatre also boasts the latest in professional lighting and sound equipment. Technical expertise is supplied by our dedicated team who can show you the ropes of our lighting, props and speaker systems.
Our purpose-built, state-of-the-art Dance Studios offer the perfect environment to bring your creativity to life. All three studios feature the latest audiovisual equipment and professional Harlequin sprung dance floors, which offer to cushion and reduce impact, as well as offering greater traction to reduce slippage.
