If you like or would like to get involved in PERFORMING…. ACTING, SINGING or DANCING on a stage, LIVE in front of an audience then WAPA might just be what you’ve been looking for.

WAPA is a PERFORMING ARTS SCHOOL that, through weekly term based projects will help you to learn or develop these skills. At the end of each term you will get a chance to “showcase” this work in the form of a PERFORMANCE at your local centre or prestigious local & national Theatres… “The Liverpool Empire”, “The Floral Pavilion”, “Liverpool Philharmonic Hall”, “Pacific Rd Theatre” & “Her Majesties Theatre” in the heart of Londons West End.

Even if you don’t want to perform, getting tuition each week from “Performance Professionals” at WAPA in DRAMA, SINGING & DANCE, helps to boost self confidence & develop skills that last will last a lifetime.

WAPA was founded in 1996 to fulfil the needs of many talented local young performers who wanted to enjoy & benefit from expert extra curriculum tuition in the Performing Arts of Song, Drama & Dance.

Since our foundation, WAPA has helped many students to gain exceptional grades in GCSE, A level & acting examinations with the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA), in addition to winning places to train full time at Accredited Drama Schools, for which they have also been awarded full discretionary awards. Other students have undertaken a career within the entertainment industry.

However, not all WAPA students join just to pass exams, or because they want to begin a professional career in the theatre, many join specifically to develop self confidence, uncover previously hidden talents & make valuable new friendships within a fun, challenging & dynamic environment.

At WAPA, we believe that the Performing Arts, possess truly unique qualities for enhancing personal development. Not only do they allow young people to develop imagination, confidence, authentic communication skills & a positive attitude, but our students really buzz from the experience.
