Our programs offer the perfect blend of performing arts camp and travel abroad experience. Last year, we introduced a new offer to Canadian applicants to pay their tuition in Canadian dollars, a savings of over 25% off our program tuition. This resulted in some amazing talented young Canadian artists joining us last summer and we are keen to have more!


We offer programs in both Acting and Film open to students age 14-19. Our programs are taught exclusively in English however there are plenty of opportunities for French speakers to practice their language skills both on the program and out in the wider community on field trips and excursions.
