A Proven Track Record

Our graduate destinations are outstanding, and with our incredible industry links, our graduates can be seen in featured roles on stage and screen across the globe.

A Showcase for All

All of our students are given the opportunity to perform in the showcase- there is no double or triple casting. Our students are all in the spotlight!

Join the Family

Our students are known by name, not number, right from their very first audition. Every student is important to us and all of our staff.

Fulfil Your Potential

We strongly believe that professional on-set and stage experience is a huge benefit to our students and gives them a competitive edge to their training. We will actively look for opportunities for our students whilst they train.

Accessible to All

Our fees are hugely competitive, and we believe in keeping them that way so that our students are not saddled with debt when they graduate. Adding to that, we welcome every student to audition for our generous scholarships and bursaries.

Performing Arts

Since establishing D&B School of Performing Arts in 2000, we have had the pleasure of nurturing many students through our three year diploma course and into professional work.

Our exciting performing arts school offers a balanced curriculum of professional training to students from the UK and abroad. We cover every aspect of training needed to develop well balanced, versatile triple-threat performers.

With a selected intake every year, our students benefit from intensive training from a dynamic and professional faculty. The small intake enables us to truly nurture our students’ strengths and weaknesses, and ensures that every individual will develop their skills in a safe and happy environment.

The D&B Diploma in Musical Theatre is endorsed by the Council for Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre. We are also uniquely placed to offer ample professional opportunities to our students through our extensive industry links and highly acclaimed acting agency, D&B Management.
