Event Details
With over 40 years experience, Bristol School of Performing Arts is the largest and most successful of its kind in the West Country. The basis of the School’s teaching philosophy is simple -“Education through Performance”.

The school covers all aspects of Theatre and Television training, employing without doubt the largest and most varied pool of talented tutors, many of whom are industry professionals.

BSP Arts proudly boasts a 100% exam success rate.

Because of its size, and the high regard in which it is held by all the major agencies and producing managements, the School is able to boast a veritable ’Who’s who’ amongst its seemingly never-ending list of professional * - both in theatre and television.

Don’t be fooled by those who claim to ‘teach’ talent. Talent is a gift! Good training improves that gift. If you have that gift, BSP Arts is the school for you!

Showdance is literally what it says “on the tin” i.e. choreography for presentation in the School’s musical productions. A major component of musical production is the dance element, and these classes provide ideal training in dance for stage performance.

As Showdance is not a pure dance lesson as such, then the ability of those in the groups can vary greatly.

Showdance classes are taught by professional choreographer Elysia Lawrence-Tebb.

Please note that these classes can only be taken by BSPA students already studying Drama.

Performance opportunities

BSPA prides itself on its many performance opportunities, be they professional or in-house. Furthermore, we are proud of the fact that the School has now earned the accolade of being the largest and most successful young peoples’ Musical Theatre School in the West Country. Our involvement in professional productions now runs well into double figures, with more on the horizon.

BSPA in association with its sister School, Bristol School of Dancing has provided young dancers for Bristol Hippodrome pantomimes for in excess of fifty years. We believe that studying Showdance can help with becoming successful in auditions for theatre performance.

If you require specific dance classes….

BSPA also offer classes in Ballet and Tap. Our individual dance classes cover training in the various forms of dance and carry the ability to take exams in the grades of ballet, tap and modern dance. The School operates both the RAD and the ISTD syllabus.
