Our Approach


Our photography classes are designed to fully equip you with the technical knowledge you need to get the most out of your photography, and provide you with projects and exercises to utilise your creativity. The classes are limited to a small size, so tutors are able to offer you the technical support you need, give you practical hands-on experience and constructive feedback to develop your photography skills.

All of our classes involve focussed, classroom based theory learning, but major on practical exercises. We are committed to offering an enjoyable experience as we guide you through comprehensive technical training and build your confidence as you explore your creative ideas and experimenting with various techniques.

PAYMENT OPTIONS
Membership Subscription Details 

Membership to the Jazz Company will cover you for all classes, rehearsals and all shows from your joining date. The Company rehearses throughout the year, with the following breaks: Easter (one week break), Summer (3 week break) and Christmas (no classes between 16th Dec - 30th Dec).

To make membership fees more manageable, these breaks are accounted for within your monthly instalments across the year. This means there are no breaks in your monthly payments.

We offer two payment options for the Jazz Dance Company:

Monthly payments - £55 per month: After your first payment we will debit from your card on the first working day of each month (if you joined part way through a month we will make the necessary adjustment). There is a minimum membership of three months. If you wish to cancel your membership after this period, you will need to send written confirmation of your cancellation to info@city-academy.com, leaving at least 2 weeks’ notice before your next payment.

Introduction to DSLR Photography tutors


All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
