Alexandra Palace Launches Weekend Performing Arts School For Children and Young People

Alexandra Palace has this week launched a new performing arts school, Young Stars, which will offer budding performers aged 7-18 the chance to hone their acting, singing and dancing skills, under the guidance of leading industry professionals.

Kicking off on Saturday, 7 January Young Stars will offer participants the chance showcase their talents with a range of performance opportunities, including gracing the stage of Ally Pally's spectacular Victorian Theatre - following in the footsteps of Mark Gatiss, Madonna, Arlo Parks, Celia Imrie, Simon Callow, Jools Holland and Ed SHeeran, to name just a few. There will also be the chance to learn from the ongoing Theatre programme at the Palace, which currently includes five-star sensation Bugsy Malone, the child-star led show that's delighting audiences this festive season.

Young Stars is the latest addition to a burgeoning Theatre learning programme that places children, young people and under-served communities at its heart. Last summer, Alexandra Palace's Young Actors Company, for 18-24 year-olds, took over this historic auditorium with their sharp take on contemporary living, Fragments.

Split into three age groups, starting with Little Stars (7-10), progressing to Shooting Stars (11-14), and aspiring to become Supernovas (15-18), the performing arts school will enable young people to make the Palace their home.

Mark Civil, Alexandra Palace's Head of Creative Learning, says: "We want everyone to view this glorious venue as a platform to tell their stories, hone skills, and showcase their talent. We hope to nurture the next generation of performing arts stars - but whether you're a young person who wants to see your names in lights or simply grow in confidence and enjoy yourself, we want to hear from you."

Young Stars costs £225 per each ten-week term, working out at only £7.50 per hour of specialist coaching, with discounts for families and bursaries available. Proceeds from the Theatre School will be put back into Alexandra Palace's charitable and community projects.
