Urdang Academy

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

Our part-time 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 part-time 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 Sunday Accelerate 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 course focuses on developing and progressing skills while allowing dedicated time with world-class teaching staff to practice what you love.

Our Accelerate Associates: Dance course is offered twice monthly and takes place every other Sunday. With a strong focus on the core technical subjects. Accelerate Associates: Dance aims to produce strong, well-rounded dancers.  This is an auditioned programme for 3 age groups. Aged 10+

Our Accelerate Associates: Musical Theatre course has a strong emphasis on Singing, Acting, Acting Through Song and Movement for Actors. All areas that help to create a well-rounded performer. This takes place twice monthly, every other Sunday.  This is an auditioned programme for 3 age groups. Aged 10+

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

Our Summer School Plus follows our Summer School curriculum as well as offering some additional classes.  Students will also visit two West End Shows, experience London with two sight-seeing tours, learn about London West End Theatre and go backstage for a theatre tour. Students can also opt to take private singing lessons or English as a second language classes.

Our brand new Accelerate Intensives focus on the main core subjects associated with each genre (Dance, Musical Theatre and Hip/Hop Commercial). Students must be advanced and well experienced in most of the areas covered on the courses.

Our Boys/Girls Day is a FREE day of Dance workshops with leading industry professionals for students aged 14+.

As well as the above courses, we also offer a new Level 4 Diploma in Dance Education (DDE), delivered on a part-time basis.  The teaching qualification is aimed at graduates from vocational colleges and professional performers.

Our part-time 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"
