At Time to Shine Stage & Screen Academy, we believe it is very important to undertake regular training to be seen, keep improving, meet new people and create together. We also believe that you having fun whilst doing so is super important too!

This is completely new and different in its delivery compared with most other schools. We provide direct support, knowledge and fun filled lessons to help children and teens gain work in the entertainments industry!

Each month within the term, will include two full Sunday sessions on set dates. Each term ends with the final session culminating into a celebration in which parents can watch.

SCREEN & TV
Students will have the opportunity to gain skills in front of the camera and on stage, but also behind the scenes too! This will include script work, movement, expression. comedy and directing to name only a few! They will be looking at a range of genres and time periods.

SINGING
All students will learn how to truthfully tell a story through song. They will be taught healthy techniques to sing both on their own and with others. There will be warm up, harmonies and the chance gain your very own solo!

AUDITION PREP
Students will spend this time learning about the industry. They will undertake sessions about the casting/audition process, how to effectively self tape and have the chance to shine in front of the Agency Directors! There will also be guest speakers periodically too.

EXTRA OPTION TO CHOOSE
Each student will have an additional option to choose from. This could be: Dancing, Singing or Acting or a surprise extra session!

From time to time, we will also be running special sessions whereby we will bring in a casting director, production company or an expert in a particular skill such as fight scenes, working with props or puppetry etc.
