About Us

Northern Irelands leading Theatre School for 3-19 year olds

The Belfast School of Performing Arts is Northern Irelands leading Theatre School for 3-19 year old. We strive to deliver the highest level of training possible to each and every individual student. As well as providing an exceptionally high standard of theatre tuition and unforgettable theatre experiences, we have strong links with the West-end & Broadway, TV & theatre casting agencies.

Under the guidance of our Artistic Director: Peter Corry we focus on helping our students grow in confidence so they can excel within the performing arts world and develop their social skills along the way. Our main emphasis is on fun while we learn and we have a strong creative, happy environment where our students create friendships for life.

We have a firm belief in the ability of Musical Theatre to benefit young people as they grow and develop into young adults. You are never too young to perform and it’s never too late to start learning. We believe that being part of a Theatre School offers a creative outlet to express personalities in a safe environment, and by doing so allows our students to grow into confident adults.
