On the Edge Academy Class Content

Academy classes run on a term basis of three months per term. In the run up to a performance, competition or event coming up, our students will be required to attend extra rehearsals and added classes maybe added throughout the week.

Our vibrant and energetic Academy give students the chance to achieve incredible technique and performance skills in a exciting variety of current forms. What is unique about us is that we provide the opportunity for On The Edge students to take part in other disciplines in exciting and exclusive workshops only available to the Academy. We provide specialist workshops in other fields of the arts that are not easily accessible such as in costume design, music making, stage and film making.
