About Italia Conti

OUR Facilities

In 2022, Italia Conti’s 111th year, we moved into our purpose-built building in Woking where our new era of talent is nurtured.



Modern Purpose Built facility

The building is 48,000 sqft over 2 floors, with 24 state-of-the-art rehearsal studios, one-to-one coaching rooms, a gymnasium, a theatre, TV & Film suites and a recording studio.

Dance Studios

Our purpose-built building has 24 state-of-the-art rehearsal studios, including dedicated and multi-purpose spaces for acting, dance (including ballet studios) and musical theatre training. Our studios have Harlequin sprung floors and dual height black metal Ballet barres.

Acting Studio

All of our acting studios are black box, with access to a well-stocked prop store and feature a piano and an integrated sound system.

Studio Equipment

We have a Kawai Piano in every studio, as well as an integrated JBL sound system, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, sprung floors from Harlequin, and black metal Ballet barres. All studios have WiFi connectivity for playing music for sessions.

Black Box Theatre

Italia Conti has an 80 seat, purpose-built, fully equipped black box theatre situated inside our building, perfect for regular productions across the disciplines.

Recording Studio

Our facility has a fully equipped, professional recording studio.

The Gym

Our gymnasium features a wall to wall gym floor, ten aerial rigging points, with silks, hoops, trampet and crash mats.

The Hub

The Hub is a space for students to relax, socialise and take breaks. The area has a student kitchen where meals can be stored and prepared.

Rhoda McGaw

A stone’s throw from our main facility is the Rhoda McGaw Theatre, which can be used for large Italia Conti performances. The theatre has a capacity of 228 seats in 9 rows of raised seating and is part of the New Victoria Theatre, Woking’s cultural hub for theatre and the arts.

The Buzz Theatre

Next to the Rhoda McGaw, The BUZZ theatre is a new 84 fixed-seat, fully equipped studio theatre with retractable seating, where Italia Conti can stage regular productions.




Woking is a town and borough in northwest Surrey, England, around 22 mi (36 km) from central London.  Around 60% of the borough is protected by the Metropolitan Green Belt.

The two main shopping centres, The Peacocks and Wolsey Place, adjoin Jubilee Square. A second public space, Victoria Square, where Italia Conti is located, was completed in 2022 as part of a project to construct two high-rise residential apartment blocks and a 23-storey hotel.

  • “I have just graduated from Liverpool Theatre School with a Level 6 Diploma in Professional Musical Theatre. I wanted to do the BA Hons (Top Up) in Professional Arts Practice course to further develop my skills for the industry. It is the perfect balance between academic writing and creativity. I already have seen improvements, both in my academic and performing work, and I now really value the ability to critically reflect on past experiences in order to improve my current skills.”

    - Sarah Collinge – Musical Theatre Performer Current Student, Class of July 2024
  • “I have found that my first term at Italia Conti has been better than I could’ve imagined. I am working with driven, passionate, likeminded people within all different realms of the performing arts industry. I find that the course is very tailored to each individual and the content is broad enough to apply to everyone but specific enough to challenge each person within their abilities. I find the course to be a place where I can collaborate and interact with people who I’d never had met otherwise. I only look forward to what the next few months of the course bring and feel more motivated than ever.”

    “The course is allowing me to reflect on my past practice, current position, and future endeavours. I really enjoy how flexible the course is, with regards to being able to tailor my studies to my own practice, enabling me to maximise the benefits of this on my future career. I expect my professional development to be impacted exponentially and I am excited to continue!”

    - Amy-Jo Sumner – Musical Theatre Performer
  • “Italia Conti’s BA Top up course was the one for me! Creating a business in under 9 months has been a massive accomplishment! The course really helps shape your future, enables you to meet professional contacts to support your research, and gives you lots of time to understand the area of the industry you want to specialise in.”

  • I’m a dancer in LA and can’t keep up with my peers on how often they take dance classes. This channel has been so helpful for me to keep up my training. Thank you for sharing this with the world. I feel like we are all dancing together even though we are all doing this at different times and in different spaces. 🖤
