Blog – Open Day 2016

Renaissance Arts Open Day 2016 was an overwhelming success today, with classes for both full-time students and scholars demonstrating their talent and versatility.

From Ballet to Jazz, Vocals to Drama, Musical Theatre to Commercial, the day has been a showcase of Renaissance Arts beliefs in creating the next generation of professional performers.

We would like to thank the support of all who attended in observing and participating with the classes today. The Directors and faculty of Renaissance Arts thoroughly enjoyed welcoming you into their lessons. 

This month we celebrate our 5 year anniversary and we look forward to continuing to set the highest standards of training in the UK


For those that did attend we would be great full if you could please fill out this short feedback form.
