The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts come to Gloworm!

Learn to act, dance and sing in our action-packed classes! Have a go at stage combat, clowning and SFX make up! Perform in your favourite musical and even write, direct and star in your own movie for the big screen!

The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts provides 4-18 year olds with outstanding training in all areas of the performing arts. Our specialist modules - Comedy & Drama, Musical Theatre and Film & Television teach a comprehensive range of skills, which are useful for everyday life, not just a career in the performing arts, whilst masterclasses allow students to experience more specialist lessons in areas like stage combat, street dance and magic.

PQA believe in rewarding and inspiring their students, so along with regular reports to monitor their progress, all students are offered group exams through Trinity College London - at no additional charge to parents.

As well as many in-house productions and showcases there are two stand-out highlights for all PQA students. The first is the chance to see their short film projects on the big screen of their local cinema, where they get to walk down the red-carpet just like the Hollywood stars. The second is the chance to take part in one of the annual PQA shows in the West End!
