At DPTA we are passionate about teaching Theatre Arts and passing on our professional knowledge to young people who live and breath Musical Theatre and Dance as much as we do.

In beautiful studios within Harrogate Grammar School and South Craven School, our unique classes are designed to challenge and nurture students into becoming intelligent, talented and accomplished performers.

All classes are designed to replicate those of London's most influential drama and theatre schools, with the same quality teaching, opportunities and challenges that excel students to succeed in achieving their individual dreams, in a safe, caring environment.

Taught by qualified DBS checked tutors with over 30 years of theatre experience, DPTA’s training is of an exceptionally high standard. It offers examinations in BBO, Lamda and RSL, with scheduled visits from influential guest teachers currently working professionally in TV, Film, Broadway and London’s West End.

DPTA is affiliated with London Children's Casting Agency, Icona Management, giving our members the opportunity to apply for a place on these books. This gives our children further opportunity to apply for auditions and castings in TV, Film and Theatre.
