The ISP programmes is focused on those who, need to prepare for auditions and may have been unsuccessful at auditions in the past, need to up skill to achieve funding or degree courses. The programme offers an intense 9 hour schedule each week and ISP assists budding performers to develop all the skills required to be competitive and fully prepared at auditions. The ISP team have over 40 years of collaborative experience in this area of training. Each member of the team has specialism in preparing students for audition in:

ISP recently came to the Diploma end of year performance, allowing their participants to see the passion and level of expertise of our students. Bernarda Alba: The Musical was presented at The Cockpit Theatre in July and was a dark and dramatic performance, leading a spellbound audience through flamenco dance scenes, stirring musical solos and dramatic monologues. It was great to be able to show ISP the dedication and talent that our students possess – hopefully they’ll inspire others to continue in their footsteps! We believe this partnership will help provide beneficial and supportive environment to help our students continue working in professional and innovative ways.
