Further Stages

IAB’s Junior Performing Arts Academy

Students aged 11- 17 with a flair and desire for performing can take their singing, dancing and acting skills to a higher level with the IAB’s new Further Stages junior classes.

Through in-depth training and master classes, students aged 11- 17 are encouraged to develop their performance skills with more technical training and assessment. They are also prepared for auditions to theatre and vocational drama schools as well as receiving a show reel and headshots.

The focus of the IAB’s Further Stages syllabus is to develop and broaden students triple threat dancing, singing and acting skills.

They will also have a minimum of 4 headshot taken for their personal portfolio. This is provided at no extra cost.

At the end of June 2023, students will showcase their learning in front of family in friends in the IAB’s theatre with full lighting and sound. There will be no entry cost to the performance.

Parents will be kept in touch with a student’s progress by way of a written report. Provided once per annum, the programme leaders will give feedback on the development of each student.

Each student will be presented with an IAB attendance certificate at the end of each term. In addition the IAB will present an award in June to a student for exceptional progress or achievement.

No previous experience is required, just a yearning and passion to learn.
