Whilst JATA aims to equip current and future practitioners of the theatre arts with all the necessary skills required of the professional “triple threat” performer, all our students experience the outstanding benefits of training in the arts – enhanced self-esteem and confidence, improved social skills as well as strengthened problem-solving and generative thinking abilities.

SING: Weekly, music theory lessons and private singing/vocal coaching classes designed to suit the requirements of the individual student.

DANCE: Group dance classes are offered in a diverse cross-section of styles including: Ballet, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop and African Dance.

ACT: Weekly private or semi-private acting classes are offered for students of all ages and levels with the syllabus to be individually designed to suit the requirements of the student/s.

For those wishing to excel in all three arenas of musical theatre, JATA has programmes and pricing options for various levels of skill and interest.

All our instructors are accredited teachers and/or industry professionals with unsurpassable knowledge and experience.
