Summer intensive courses in acting, dance and musical theatre

Each year the IAB holds summer intensive courses in Acting, Dance and Musical Theatre. All teaching is in English and is aimed at passionate students aged 16+.

These programmes provide a unique and exciting opportunity for students to enhance their skills, experience the amazing facilities at the IAB, meet other young artists and learn from experienced professionals.
