More than a hundred children – accompanied by family and friends – attended the launch of a second Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts in West Leeds.
The existing academy in Bramley has proven so popular that organisers have opened a second academy at the same venue.
At Saturday’s launch children were split into age groups and sampled classes in PQA’s core modules; comedy and drama, musical theatre and film and television. Parents had the opportunity to take a peek at their children in action during classes.
Kim Lyon, Principal of PQA Leeds, said:
“I am delighted to provide young people in the area with such a unique performing arts experience. We teach a comprehensive range of skills, which are useful for everyday life, not just a career in the performing arts. I am so excited to see what the future brings and want to thank everyone for their support!”
PQA Leeds is currently enrolling. Classes run on Saturdays from 9.45am-1pm and 1.45pm-5pm at Leeds West Academy, Intake Lane, Bramley. For more information, or to book a free taster session, call 0800 531 6282.
