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.

Covid 19 Response – Class update –  We will be closely working under the advisement of Ontario Health for the Fall session following regulations and implementing guidelines to ensure the continued health and safety of our students, staff and SCTS families.

As with many programs Scts moved to an online platform last term with great success, from this experience we have seen how much the students grow and thrive when able to access technique classes, lessons and warm ups online throughout the term. We have also seen wonderful results from the personal coaching and advice.  We will be implementing some of these structures into the program starting Fall 2020, enabling us to open up a whole new training and support network for the students to help them grow and develop on their personal journeys in the world of the Dramatic Arts.
