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.

We need your help to raise money to stay open, and keep class costs low.

We have chosen to walk from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace to raise money for Weekend Wac Arts, because we have been enriched by what we do here, and understand the value of the creative world. We would really appreciate your support in helping us march towards our target.

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
