Bite-sized courses for larger-than-life performers

Urdang Academy

Our part time courses (Connect) are geared towards a wide variety of individuals – whether they are looking to train year round or just have fun.

Connect courses offer something for everyone by indulging a range of interests, accommodating a variety of lifestyles and catering to diverse skill sets and skill levels.

We have a long history of helping people from all backgrounds and cultures unearth and pursue their passion for the performing arts. Our short courses take this commitment one step further, delivering training in bite-sized chunks so the performing arts are accessible to everyone.

Our Pre-audition course is designed for performers who want to deliver the best audition possible to successfully secure a placement at a vocational institute. The pre-audition course focuses on preparing participants for auditions including stage presence, technique and communication so you have the confidence to do your best at an audition.

Our Saturday Dance School is a weekly offering in Ballet, Tap and Jazz to local students new to dance as well as young dancers with existing training.  It builds on Urdang’s existing youth scheme, Sunday Connect, and extends its high-calibre tuition and diversity of training to children aged 3 years onwards.

Our Sunday Connect course is designed to provide high-quality training to young performers to help them get the most out of the beginning of their careers. The Connect course focuses on developing and progressing skills while allowing dedicated time with world-class teaching staff to practice what you love.

Our Summer School course is designed to give young performers an opportunity to practice full-time during school holidays, providing them an opportunity to advance their Musical Theatre and Dance skills in a condensed time frame and concentrated, intensive training sessions.

Our Masterclasses are designed to give amateur performers a time to further explore something they enjoy, practice what they love or pursue extra training.

Our Connect course training takes place in a professional environment with our highly regarded teaching staff and West End choreographers, directors, musical directors and performers.

"The warm and friendly staff and family atmosphere along with training that is tailored to me as an individual make urdang a fantastic place to study"
