About us

Associated Studios is one of Britain’s leading Performing Arts Academies, dedicated to providing top level training in Opera and Musical Theatre for aspiring performers who have the potential and ability to pursue a professional career.

Associated Studios provides uniquely tailored training, with greater attention to the practical needs of its students in terms of flexibility and finance than any other UK Drama school. Diploma courses are written to allow students to continue supporting themselves through part-time work, whilst participating in a rigorous training schedule led by eminent industry professionals from the West End and abroad. Not only our Diplomas, but also our part-time Foundation and Advanced courses have been designed to cover all aspects of vocational training, and have produced some of the best performers working in the industry today.

Associated Studios also have a professional development arm called ‘The Advanced Performers’ Studio’, which provides workshops for performers who have finished their drama school training, but who wish to continue to practice and hone their skills in between work engagements, in Opera, Musical Theatre and Acting.
