Calling all PQA film enthusiasts! πŸ“½οΈ

Most films that we see on the big screen feature heroes, heroes that make us feel that anything is possible and that we have the power within us to overcome some of life's challenges.

That's why we're challenging our students to make a 90 second short film, with the theme 'A Hero's Journey'.

We want to see films that inspire us. Films that show us your version of heroism. 🌟
Full challenge details can be found here πŸ‘‰https://pqatv.com/.../a-heros-journey-short-film.../

Here at PQA Newport, our classes are much more than just learning how to sing, dance and act. πŸ’›

We nurture every young performers creativity and self-belief. But how do we do that?

Musical Theatre πŸ‘― Specially crafted musical theatre projects to shine a spotlight on the various roles, teach your child to work collaboratively, support their peer’s individual strengths and develop their own.

Film & Television πŸ“½οΈ From mastering the art of screen acting to getting hands-on with creating and shooting their own short films. Film & TV develops our students filmmaking abilities, along with core life skills such as teamwork, communication and problem-solving.

Comedy & Drama 🎭 Students to dive into their creative side, exploring theatre styles, from classic plays to improvisation, Shakespearean drama to physical theatre – there’s something for everyone!

Book your first session free and try it for yourself!
