  • Do you offer scholarships or financial support?
    Yes! You can find out more about that here.
  • I'm performing professionally. Can I still train with Spirit?
    Yes! We do all we can to support students who are also involved in professional performing contracts. This includes freezing fees for weeks that are missed due to professional work, and making sure students are suitably caught up during the weeks that they are back in class.
  • Are there additional opportunities for weekly students, besides training?
    Absolutely. We're proud to offer exciting performance opportunities throughout the year. In the past this has included slots in all-star lineups (like West End Live), world-renowned stages (the Royal Albert Hall, 02 Arena), on television (Disney Plus, ITV), radio (Magic Radio) and so much more. We're also proud to perform at national charity events (Children in Need, Save the Children), plus produce our own full-length stage production biannually. Not only that, but all our Weekly Students will take part in at least one professionally filmed production each year, released to our YouTube Channel which has attracted over 100 million viewers. Our performers will have the chance to be part of an innovative production created just for them, and learn the ropes of vocal recording and being on a professional set. Some of our video productions have even been shared by West End and Broadway shows, such as Come From Away and Hamilton!
  • Does Spirit act as a talent agency?
    No, but we are connected with some of the UK's best talent agencies and will often secure representation for our students that need it. The reason we don't run an agency ourselves is so that our students have the freedom to be represented by whatever agency best suits their needs in the industry, without that creating a conflict of interest within the studio. Within the Spirit team, training and improvement is the sole focus for both students and faculty.
  • I live outside of London. Can I still attend?
    Absolutely! Most of the Spirit team travel into London from all over the country and beyond. If you are able to make the journey and be committed to your training, we don't mind where you are from.
  • Am I the right standard to attend Spirit's Half Term Intensive?
    Our Half Term and Summer Intensives are open to all performers aged 9-19 who have a passion and commitment to performing arts. Groups are streamed by age and/or ability, so everyone will be training at the right level. We recommend that you have some performing arts experience before attending our workshops. But we don't expect you to be professional level. If you have little to no dance training, that's ok - you won't be alone, and we'll find the right group for you. Likewise, if you are a triple-threat with lots of experience under your belt already, our workshops are for you. With industry professional teachers helping you plan a long-term career in the industry, our top-level classes are designed to challenge and thrill the established young performer.
  • Do you offer trial sessions?
    The In-Person Audition Day is an excellent way to get a taste of the Spirit experience. After that, if you are accepted, trials work as follows: In the Weekly Program - You will attend your first week on a trial-basis, before making the official commitment to the team thereafter. For the Monthly Program - If you're not ready to make the full commitment right away, we recommend you join on the Cancel-Any-Time membership. You can always switch onto a lower-priced longer-commitment membership after your first class, or whenever you are ready to.
  • I want to train more in DANCE. How do I do that?
    All of our Musical Theatre training includes dance, but if you'd like to sink your teeth into more specific and technical disciplines, our DANCE COMPANY is the place for you. Dance Company students train on Saturdays and cover subjects such as commercial, jazz, contemporary, conditioning, ballet, acrobatics and more. They also boast an award-winning dance competition team. For more information head to the Dance Company side of the website here.
  • What are Spirit's values?
    We exist to help passionate performers reach their full potential, in an environment that is both professional and family-like. By providing a program that is is supportive and joyful, we encourage our students to become fearless, independent and multi-disciplinary artists. All of this is done with mindfulness towards student's mental health and wellbeing, with extreme importance placed upon team-work, kindness and camaraderie. We help our students to thrive and thrive together.
  • Where and when do classes run?
    Where All of our classes run in Central London, within easy walking distance of major tube and train stations. When Classes take place on Saturdays (weekly) or Sundays (weekly, or once per month). The day depends on the program the student is in. A student's program placement is decided by the faculty, through a very careful consideration process based on the faculty's expertise of the industry, and understanding of where the student will best excel.
  • Am I good enough to join?
    Whether you're a seasoned young West End professional, or a passionate newcomer, it is absolutely worth attending our auditions and trying out for us. We have different teams on offer for varying levels of experience. If you have the potential to thrive in one of those teams, we will spot it. ​
