We separate our performing arts training companies by age, allowing each group to experience training that’s appropriate for their cohort.
- 6-18 year-olds take a weekly 3-hour session that includes acting, dancing and singing in equal parts moving from individual skills to performance over the year.
- 4-6 year-olds take a weekly 90-minute session that includes acting, dancing and singing
- Some companies also offer weekly 45-minute sessions for 3-year-olds which cover the foundations of theatre expression in a creative environment, with several of our companies offering advanced training outside of the main scheduled sessions.
Main Company sessions are divided into the following age ranges:
Group 1: 6-9-year-olds
Group 2: 9-12-year-olds
Group 3: 13-18-year-olds
Junior Ensemble: TT Minis & TT Tinies: 3-5-year-olds
Our sessions are billed on a termly basis, which can be paid in one lump sum or spread across a few payments with our payment plan option. You must pay the full amount regardless of missed sessions or planned holiday absences. Find your local company for full pricing information…
