About Conservatoire for Dance and Drama
The Conservatoire comprises eight specialist schools delivering world-leading education and vocational training in the performing arts. We train the performing artists and production professionals of the future: actors, circus artists, dancers, stage managers, technical theatre practitioners, choreographers and directors.
The Conservatoire schools exist to train young artists who will match the world’s best and on entering their professions, shape the future of dance, drama and circus arts.
The Conservatoire schools are small, specialist and vocational training institutions with international reputations for high quality delivery in their respective fields. Each school has a different but complementary approach to training a new generation of artists. The Conservatoire enables the eight schools to work together, whilst celebrating the diverse ethos and cultures of the individual schools, some of which have more than a century of experience in training students.
