About Edinburgh Theatre School

Your Inspirational Team

A note from the teachers; 

As teachers, we want to be the people that inspire and encourage everyone to sing, dance and act. Followed closely by people who give you the right tools to enhance, individualise and improve your abilities to your full potential. Our approach to teaching is warm and engaging. We strive to create an environment where our students feel safe and supported, as well as comfortable making and learning from their mistakes. We also aim to instil a drive in them to challenge themselves, take ‘safe ricks’ and most importantly, shine. Watching our students grow into confident young artists fills us with so much pride and we can’t wait to welcome you to the DN Theatre Family.

DN Theatre is all about creating opportunities to learn and perform on stage – from our newest students to our most experienced, we work together to create fabulous moments to remember on stage.

SPOTLIGHT is a vital part of that approach – our in-house performance programme gives Edinburgh Theatre School students the opportunity to present their classwork and musical development in a real theatre venue each year.

Over the course of the weekly classes, our teachers introduce techniques in all genres followed by musical pieces that will be developed and rehearsed to create a show to be proud of – and one that families and friends are all invited to enjoy.
