Every Saturday Afternoon from 2pm-5pm

The Belfast School of Performing Arts (BSPA) is Northern Ireland’s leading theatre School for 6-19-year-olds and strives to deliver the highest level of training possible to every individual student.

As well as providing an exceptionally high standard of theatre tuition we endeavour to offer our students many unforgettable experiences. We have unique contacts with WestEnd & Broadway Performers, TV & theatre casting agencies (including our own in-house casting agency) and theatre professionals.  Through these opportunities, our students gain experience and learn more about performance and communicating with others.

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. There is a strong emphasis on fun while we learn and we have a positive, creative, happy environment where our students develop friendships for life.

What can you expect from a BSPA day?

All BSPA Schools run in the same way and in the Autumn term are based on a well planned professional curriculum aimed at providing the best tuition for our pupils.  The schools are divided into 3 groups based on age but sometimes they do vary a little from school to school as we endeavour to ensure the groups are as equal in numbers as possible with a maximum of 20-25 in each group. The curriculum is aimed appropriately at each age group and is intended to be informative, to give children the skills they need to perform but above all to be fun

Blue Group – Ages 6-8 years 

Orange Group – Ages 9-12 years

Green Group – Ages 13 years +

All schools start and end with a warm-up and cool down bringing all the school together and in term 2-3 work towards a professional school show in a Professional Theatre.

( Please note things will be adjusted currently due to COVID -19 regulations. Please contact for more details)
