Welcome to Ten Feet Tall Academy. We believe in offering young people (Aged 7-15) opportunities to change their lives through theatre. We take time to work with individual students in order for them to make improvements in their social, interpersonal and performance skills. Ten Feet Tall Academy believes that a child’s involvement in Drama is about more than just acting on stage. We want to pass on skills for life. We’re an extended family and believe expression, confidence, imagination, teamwork and creativity are key aspects to the development of all young people.
Our sessions are led by professionals performers (who have worked with the likes of ITV, BBC and National Theatre of Scotland); all of whom are PVG Disclosure checked and are regularly in contact with the acting industry. As a professional theatre company based in the North East of Scotland, we also believe in inspiring the next generation of artists and creatives in the area. We focus on offering opportunities for students to kick-start their careers in the industry; as well as nurturing beginners and those new to performing. Above all we wish to challenge students to meet their potential; in a fun filled, caring environment. We wish to give them memories that last a lifetime.
Our classes take place on Sundays over a 3 hour session, which centres around Film/TV, Comedy, and Acting classes. Throughout the year, students will get the opportunity to share their learning in some unforgettable sharings of work.* This includes performing in shows in a 300 seat theatre, carrying out a comedy routine and even attending a film premiere of their own Film and TV work.
*Please note that these sharings aren't compulsory for students not keen to take part. We are proud to deliver a programme that is accessible for all.
I encourage you to download our Academy handbook below and discover some of what we have to offer at Ten Feet Tall Academy. You can also get more of an idea of pricing, dates and meet our wonderful team. I hope to meet you and your child in person one day.
