Junior Company is a new initiative in 2018 for up-and-coming performers not yet old enough to join Basement Company. The programme will run for a full year but is an opt in/opt out choice each term. This programme is for young artists who are seeking professional level performance training and experience.

They have a core tutor all year with visiting professionals as guest tutors. Each term, students will work towards a showcase exploring a different style and form to build experience and skills through performance. On top of these skills, we are teaching active listening, collaboration, creative thinking and leadership.

Centrepoint's Holiday Programmes have a different performance focus each holidays.

Kids are tutored by a professional performer and finish the week showcasing the skills they have gained to an audience of family and friends.

These programmes offer a safe and playful environment where it is easy to take risks and try out new skills. From the absolute beginner to a performance pro, our holiday programmes are fun and engaging weeks of creativity.
