What will we be talking about?

Meet our team and find out more about our range of specialist courses designed to support you to specialise in Acting, Dance, Musical Theatre, Theatre and Performance, Vocal Studies or Technical Theatre. We’ll talk you through our degrees, what makes us different and how to prepare for the audition process.

Our team will discuss the difference in our offer, how we teach collaboratively with industry professionals and tell you more about their own professional experience within the performing arts industry, and what it’s like to study up North in Manchester. We’ll also be answering any questions you may have.

What will I be studying?

Studying at The Arden requires a huge commitment. You will be expected to be in every day, Monday-Friday, working intensive hours with tutors who are all established professionals from Actors and Theatre-makers, to Musical Directors and Choreographers. We also offer one year intensives if you’re not quite ready for Drama School or want to focus on a specialism to enhance your performance portfolio for industry auditions. We will provide you with invaluable industry insight and highest levels of professional standards, so you have the best possible chance to succeed in this challenging industry.
