About us

The Weekend Associates are closely linked to the Italia Conti Academy in London. We have the advantage of using several of the main school teaching staff from the Academy which guarantees the standard of classes on offer.

Italia Conti is the world’s longest established stage school (1911)… You can be assured that the classes on offer have been tried and tested with many pupils… eventually progressing to join the full time Academy, and becoming the professional performers we see on stage and screen today.

The course is run for the enjoyment of the pupils, who gain both confidence and self-discipline from their involvement within the school.

The School works closely with the Academy who will monitor standards throughout the year. Italia Conti Weekend Associates offer I.S.T.D. Ballet, Tap & Modern, and LAMDA (Acting) with examinations in these classes for those pupils who wish to take them.

We also hold classes in the ever-popular subjects… Jazz, Acting, Singing, and Musical Theatre, as well as Voice, Radio, Street Dance and Acting for Camera.

The School also offers day trips once a year to our full time training School in London, plus Summer Courses, and shows. The Academy also runs it’s own full time theatrical agency, of which all associate pupils are invited to audition after having attended associate school for a minimum of 12 months, participating in 3 or more subjects.
