A Y A Drama School
At AYA we are committed to
fostering the talent of artistic young people
in a stimulating, challenging, supportive environment.
WHO WE ARE
Aspiring Young Actors (AYA) was established in 1994 as an independent Drama School to provide training and professional opportunities for talented child actors. Today it is one of the foremost drama schools for young people in Auckland. Our students, aged between 10 and 20 years, are accepted from annual auditions held each January. We look for motivated young actors who have had experience in either dance or drama and show confidence, ability and a passion to act.
WHAT WE DO
Our students are prepared in all aspects of theatre including voice, improvisation, stagecraft, mime, characterisation and movement.
We provide the opportunity and encouragement for committed students to develop their creativity, uniqueness and personal strength. Over 70% of AYA students have agent representation giving them openings for professional acting work.
Classes are grouped by students' age and maturity. Numbers are limited
to ensure individual attention, and to enable student's work progress and artistic development to be observed. Our young actors are given every opportunity and encouragement to develop their creativity, uniqueness,
and personal strength.
Acceptance is by audition only for students from 10 years to young adults.
We invite applications from students who:
1. Have attended at least 2 years drama and/or dance classes.
2. Have stage and/or screen experience.
3. Will have reached 10 years of age by 1 February 2009.
Auditions for new students are held over Anniversary Weekend each January for the start of classes in February. Every year a limited number of places become available in most classes. Our youngest group - Intermediate Class, 10 -11 years - is entry level and offers our highest new student intake.
Applications are accepted throughout the year until 31 December 2008.
