Performance Preparation Academy

At PPA we believe that theatre training should be a challenging, inspiring, life affirming, and ultimately life changing experience.

We're committed to creating a nurturing, supportive environment in which every single student is valued as an individual and given the attention that they need to develop the confidence, practical skills and mental approach necessary to fulfil their true potential and to flourish. We believe that a great performer is active in both body and mind, and that with a holistic approach, training should reflect this.
