Junior Conservatoire | Drama, Dance & Music Courses for Young People
Royal Conservatoire of Scotland - Junior Conservatoire
The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has a Junior Conservatoire of Dance, Drama and Music.
These are programmes of inspiring performing arts classes and workshops for talented young people from all over Scotland and the north of England.
Each of the three strands require that you audition each year to meet the criteria for joining a Juniors course and that you commit to a motivating and fun programme of study with us and your peers.
The majority of our Transitions 20/40 programme currently sits within the Junior Conservatoire too. Transitions 20/40 is a new programme of widening access opportunities to the performing arts for pre-HE students from across Scotland. Transitions 20/40 is supported by the Scottish Funding Council.
The opportunities within each strand are fully described within these web pages and contact names and numbers are supplied throughout in order that we can address your further questions. In summary for 13/14 we offer:
- Junior Conservatoire of Dance (Modern Ballet) - Wednesday or Thursday classes
- Junior Conservatoire of Drama (Acting) - Sunday classes
Junior Conservatoire of Music - Saturday classes
Please see individual subject pages for more information about upcoming audition dates for
2014/15. Also, watch out for Junior Conservatoire developments in Production and Screen soon
‘2013/14 sees a period of development for our Juniors as we build on many years of delivering
quality music provision by adding drama and dance to our portfolio.
Our aim is to enable ambitious, committed and talented young people from all backgrounds to take advantage of our wonderful facilities and highly qualified staff to develop your skills and knowledge and pursue your passion for the performing arts as a career, as a hobby and as audiences of the future.
We look forward to working with you at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.’
