The course covers all aspects of Musical Theatre performance - Acting, Singing and Dancing and will give you the chance to explore and develop your skills as a performer under the expert tuition of leading choreographers, directors and industry professionals.


This leads up to a final performance in Italia Conti’s own theatre at the end of the week.


The emphasis of the course is on enjoyment and will give a taste of the kind of training that you would receive were to come and study full time at Italia Conti.

The Summer School offers a unique opportunity to experience a Performing Arts Summer School under the direction of Italia Conti’s world-renowned teaching faculty.


Booking now open for our Italia Conti Summer Schools. The Summer School will include workshops from four Musicals, a range of dance, acting and singing classes, with sessions covering Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Commercial and Contemporary Dance, culminating in an end-of-week performance on the last day of the course. A great experience for those already receiving lessons and a wonderful opportunity for those new to performing arts, to come along, join in, and learn what life is like at Italia Conti.

Subject to Government Guidelines, if required all courses will move online at discounted rate (10%), except 5-7 yr old course in Guildford which will be cancelled, and all fees will be refunded in full.
