The individual studio spaces:

The Dance studio.
Our dance teachers are serious about dance. They all have a specialism, and it shows in their work. When you are a student of dance, you need to know that the people teaching you are fully qualified, enthusiastic and as up to date in their industry as possible. They are there to teach and inspire both beginners and young professionals alike.

We love dance at Artemis, and we support our students and teachers by ensuring they have the tools they need to succeed! Our main dance studio features a Harlequin floor, wooden barres, mirrored walls and large dual aspect floor to ceiling windows to ensure the room is flooded with light! We teach a range of RAD ballet , ISTD Tap and modern and non graded classes including Street, Cheer, Jazz and Hip Hop.

The Drama Studio
We specialise in training young adults for professional work in the industry (theatre or film and television). Actors are special people and so we have given them a great place to learn and rehearse. Our Bracknell drama studio offers students a dedicated space where they can workshop and have fun with their craft. Soft beanbags in 'smarties' colours provide comfy seating to listen or review, and bookshelves with plays as well as show memorabilia set the scene and encourage great work!

The Music Studio
or singers and musicians we offer a tranquil space, set apart from the actors and dancers. A piano is on hand for use in classes and also for instrumental lessons. The studio is used as part of all the Saturday drama courses, and in the week it is the base for individual and small group tuition in vocal classes.

Between the school and production company we produce over 20 shows a year, both professional and for community users. Full design and marketing services are also available for festivals and events.
