Wac Arts believes that everybody has a right to access the arts.

We offer innovative, inclusive and cutting edge performing arts and media programmes to young people aged 4-26. A full time Diploma in Musical Theatre course, weekend and evening enrichment programmes as well as summer and holiday courses all in the bustling Old Town Hall in Belsize Park.

What we offer


School level to professional level training for ages 14 and up.


Shorter evening courses and holiday projects for ages 5 and up.


Saturday and Sunday performing arts and media for ages 5-26.

All our courses are fully inclusive but we also offer a range of specialist disabilities and inclusion programmes too.
