Students at the UKTSPAA Dance classes at the UKTSPAA
The UK Theatre School Performing Arts Academy is a bridge for the gap between drama clubs and the further education performing arts establishments. It was the Principal, Lizanne Thomson, who noticed a clear gap in the education system to provide the correct training for young people who are looking to advance within performing arts. The UK Theatre School Performing Arts Academy opened its doors as an independent Drama and Musical Theatre school within the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD), now known as The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS).
But due to the school’s popularity and rapid growth, the UKTSPAA has now expanded into talking on its own premises. The UK Theatre School Performing Arts Academy is ideally situated within the most beautiful Grade B listed building within the multicultural vibrancy Glasgow City Centre, only two minutes walk from Glasgow Central & Queen Street train stations. The UKTSPAA has provided its students with a structured comprehensive performing arts syllabus within the finest environment.
This training has been commended by industry professionals and led to its students progressing on to many of the finest establishments in London, France, Germany, Italy, and to the Juilliard School in New York. Being part of the top Casting Agency in the country, UKTSPAA students enjoy continued success in the theatre, film & television industries. The students range from age 4 years through to 17 for our Youth Programs, and from age 18 for our Adult programs.
