After-school singing and acting classes

 

We know your kids will love it here

When our students talk to their friends about ‘doing ExitLeft’ you know they feel right at home. Our aim is to develop confident kids, stimulate creativity and build strong leadership and communication skills through the performing arts. The ExitLeft community builds lifelong friends, a love of music and a passion for performance.

We develop everyone’s skills – how to sing, act and play – starting with the basics: good technique and an understanding of style, through to how to perform with confidence. There are no auditions for our Performing Arts classes because if your child is passionate about singing and acting, ‘doing ExitLeft’ will teach them to be amazing!

By fostering outgoing, energetic and creative individuals, our students can succeed in any area they choose. We focus on developing the voice, body and imagination teaching students how to work as a team, develop communication skills and become creative on demand.  Our students are also given a variety of performance opportunities throughout the year and can expand their skills through personalised lessons in voice, piano and guitar and through our musical theatre performance projects.

Our vision is to raise the standard of education for all Tasmanians through engagement in the performing arts

What you’ll love about ExitLeft Performance Academy

  1. It feels like a family

    The best performers are those who make other actors look good. This mindset of working as a team promotes making friends and helps kids feel safe. As students get older the Academy becomes like a second home where they can drop in anytime and hang with their friends.

  2. Creativity is encouraged

    In the professional world, people are often given incredibly short deadlines and expected to perform on the spot. We take this same principle and teach our students the tools required to deliver confident performances with any material. As a result students can happily put together a confident, high-level performance in just a few days.

  3. There are no auditions

    It’s easy to make yourself look like a fantastic teacher if you only choose the best kids. We provide the core techniques and skills underpinning good singing and acting, and teach the tricks to create professional performances. Our students do incredibly well in exams and eisteddfods and you can see a consistent level of skill throughout the Academy.

  4. Huge egos are banned

    So many times in the performing arts you will see arrogance and a belief that ‘I am the best’. We actively discourage this entitled thinking, instead focusing on students supporting and encouraging each other, and pushing each other to be better. Feedback from the national VCA auditions over the past few years has shown ‘ExitLeft kids’ stand out because they are amazing yet down to earth, easy to work with, and willing to try anything.

  5. You can become an amazing performer

    It takes at least a thousand hours to become proficient in a skill and another ten thousand hours to become a professional. Many people will comment a student is ‘so talented’ when what actually makes an amazing performer is passion + learning. Our unique class model and mix of performance opportunities means our students are fast-tracked along this path.
