Aged 14-26? Try out all the classes offered at Senior Wac Arts for free
By Meg Beaumont
Everybody knows one – they’re the first person up and dancing at a party; your flatmate who’s the master of the shower ballad, the pal who elevates an anecdote into an epic narrative – we all know a natural performer. Maybe you’re one yourself?
So if you’ve always thought you had star quality or just want to take the plunge and try something new then we’ve got fantastic news. This Sunday Wac Arts will be opening up their doors and offering free performing arts classes all day to anyone aged 14 – 25! Get the gang together, sign up for places and spend this Sunday learning some new skills – and if you want to come back the week after classes cost £2.50 per session. That’s less than the price of a coffee! Choose from drama, singing, jazz dance, urban dance, video production, physical theatre, afro fusion dance, band, aerials, studio engineering, music technology and much more…
Wac Arts – A North London Institution
Wac Arts is a performing arts and media centre in Belsize Park and have been training stars of stage and screen for over 35 years – why? Because they believe everyone has star quality – if you’ve got a passion for performing they want to help develop your skills, no matter what your budget. They’ve trained more than two generations of actors, dancers and singers, including MOBO award winning Ms Dynamite and Oscar award nominee Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
The building, the Old Town Hall in the leafy Belsize Park, just up the road from Camden, is a hub of activity – as well as performing arts courses the building is a well known rehearsal space for some huge west end shows including Matilda and Wicked – It’s not unusual to walk past an open door and find troupes of dancers practising their moves or a choir rehearsing their scales!
