Spotlight – grade 8 to 12
For the ambitious, aspiring young performer or those with a passion for the Performing Arts! Are you looking to be challenged and encouraged by highly qualified, inspirational staff, whilst surrounded by likeminded, creative students? Our masterclass program is divided equally between training and practical experience, with classes in each of the separate disciplines of dancing, singing and acting.

Fame the musical
Following the international acclaim of the hit motion picture, television series and stage show, Fame The Musical is nothing short of a global phenomenon. Fame features a high energy, contemporary pop score (which includes the hit title song) and a touching coming-of-age story.
Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts in the early 1980s, Fame JR. is the bittersweet, but ultimately inspiring, story of a diverse group of students who commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic work. With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today.
With its topical subject manner and a cast that can include plenty of singers, dancers and instrumentalists, Fame is an ideal musical for aspiring artists and performers.
