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.

“"I was lucky enough to work with Qdos Pantomimes playing Snow White in my 1st year. It was just a small insight into the industry and inspired me to come back to college and work harder than ever!"”
“"Between accepting my place and starting at the College I was lucky enough to be cast in Grantchester for ITV. I couldn't believe I was working professionally before I'd even started my full time training!"”
“"Getting the oppurtunity to audition while training at D&B put me ahead of the game! I learnt so much on the job and the contacts I made on those jobs such as Cradle to Grave for the BBC and Call the Midwife for ITV still help me now. Where else not only lets you, but encourages you to get your face out there before you graduate?!”
“For 2 years now I have had the opportunity to film on the EastEnders set for the Children In Need special, choreographed by Matt Flint who is our showcase director. It was an amazing experience that I wouldn't have had if I hadn't been training at D&B. In my 3rd year I've already had auditions for Hamilton and Wicked!"”
