A member of our team can speak to you about your requirements and offer you ideas, options to suit.We can book a private room, tutor for your group for a time and date of your choice. We can also tailor workshop content to suit you. For example, we can run a musical theatre workshop based on a musical of choice or offer a dance workshop based on a specific artist or song.

Absolutely - We work with over 240 expert tutors with extensive experience and expertise. In many cases, we can offer custom workshops entirely created for you.We can also help if your class, society or group is looking for a talk, webinar or performance piece rather than a workshop.

We're able to host workshops at private houses. This works particularly well for celebrations like birthdays, hen dos or occasions that may be a surprise. If you would like to arrange a workshop at your property, all we'd need is the full address and an understanding of how much space you have available. For example, a dance lesson will require space as guests will be moving around.
