Stage 84 - The Yorkshire School of Performing Arts - Est. 1984

Following more than 30 years success delivering high quality performing arts tuition in Yorkshire, Stage 84 is proud to announce new drama workshops for Burley-in-Wharfedale. Our weekly Saturday morning classes provide a unique opportunity for boys and girls to develop a wide range of skills in a fun and creative environment. Young people will learn about acting for stage and screen in the spacious Queen’s Hall (located on the village’s Main Street) and be taught by experienced, DBS-checked tutors. All students have the opportunity to be represented by Stage 84’s in-house Children’s Casting Agency, which has recently seen local children win roles in multiple productions with Opera North, West Yorkshire Playhouse, CBBC, national theatre tours, West End shows in London and film productions across Yorkshire. Students have also recently been recorded for commercial videos, voiceovers and radio plays.

Thousands of children have trained with Stage 84 since the school was founded in 1984 by Valerie Jackson MBE. Today, as the leading provider of performing arts tuition in Yorkshire, Stage 84 produces award-winning theatre productions, represents students for professional performance work and offers high quality training in acting, dancing and singing throughout the year. Former students of the school now work in professional theatre, television, film, in the music industry and in a wide range of contributive arts-based careers all over the world. Famous Stage 84 alumni include Jack P. Shepherd (David Platt - Coronation Street), Kimberley Walsh (Girls Aloud) and Emma Williams (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, West End). Patrons of the school include Timothy West CBE, Anita Dobson and Kay Mellor OBE.

With our proven track record of student success & achievement, we are able to offer the best possible start for children who wish to explore the world of drama. As well as developing skills throughout the year, children will progress to live performance work for drama festivals and work towards accredited qualifications offered by examination boards such as Trinity College London and LAMDA. Stage 84 has maintained a 100% pass rate in all examinations since 1984 and in recent years has seen national recognition for exam results as high as 98%. Whether a young person is interested in our classes simply for recreation, or has a specific career in mind, Stage 84 offers the best way to step in to the world of performing arts.
