Wac Arts

We run affordable performing arts classes to empower young people of all abilities

Charity Registration No. 267043

Story

We believe that everyone should have access to the arts, which is why we offer classes in the performing arts, lead by industry professionals, for as little as £1.50

Based in Belsize Park, we are in the hub of Camden, with students coming to study with us from a wide range of backgrounds. This is why we do not means-test applicants; we believe the arts should be equal and open to all. Our classes are alive with laughter and creativity from young people across various boroughs within London and the surrounding counties.

However, this does mean that we need your help to raise money to keep class costs low.

Our cyclists have chosen to ride from London to Brighton to raise money for Wac Arts, because they understand, or have been affected by, what we do here. They would really appreciate your support in pushing them along on this fantastic journey.

This is what our students have had to say about their time with us:

'Attending Wac Arts every Sunday as a teenager transformed my life. I cannot overstate the continuing importance of having such institutions accessible to young people in London'
Sam Beste- Wac Arts alumnus and professional musician

'Wac Arts gave me an invaluable experience not only the chance to develop as an actor but gave me an appreciation of all arts ballet, jazz, music. We were encouraged to try everything and to create. I don’t think you get that type of training anywhere else'
Marianne Jean-Baptiste- Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe Nominee

'I can't express enough that if it wasn't for Wac Arts I wouldn't be where I am today. I owe it my whole career.'
Danny Dyer
Actor

'Wac Arts is a place of artistic integrity - they're supportive and take care of you as a person.'
Zoe Rahman
2012 MOBO award winner

'Wac Arts was a gift to kids like me. It was a route out of - it sounds like a bit of a cliché - the ghetto.'
Danny Sapani
West-End Actor
