We hold open days throughout the year, where we give prospective students and their families the chance to come into the studios and watch classes in progress.
Following an introduction to our principals, we allocate a student to each visitor to give a guided tour around the facilities and classes. The benefit of having a student guide means that you can ask any questions you have to the student, before being brought back to reception where our course co-ordinator is on hand to offer any further information.
Our open days for 2018-2019 are as follows:

* Week Commencing 4th December 2017
* Week Commencing 5th February 2018
* Week Commencing 7th May 2018
To audition for D&B School of Performing Arts, applicants will be expected to take part in a ballet class and a jazz class. They would also need to prepare two contrasting songs with sheet music (no longer than 2mins) and a monologue (no longer than 2mins). They would then be interviewed by the Principals to assess their suitability to take on the training. All applicants will hear within one week whether they have been offered a place, invited back for a recall, or declined entry.
Our students come to us with a range of abilities and training. Although it is advantageous to have trained across the areas of dance, singing and acting, many of our students had received little or no training in one or more areas prior to their auditions. Please don’t be put off if you have not taken a ballet class before, or are not a confident singer. We are looking for potential and students that we feel could really develop under our guidance and training. If you would like to come along to part time classes to aid your confidence before your audition, please get in touch so that we could advise you what classes we would suggest.
If you are successful in your audition and accept your place on the course, you will be invited back to audition for the full scholarships. Scholarship Recall Auditions will take place on Sunday 16th June 2019
