Summer Skills Courses are fun-filled six-day summer activity holidays providing intense, creative training for anyone aged 11-21 looking to explore their potential and develop their acting, singing and dancing abilities. They take place during July and August each year across the UK.
Summer Skills Courses do not require an audition and are full of exciting activities and inspirational training that build confidence, teamwork and self-esteem as well as providing the essential skills for the performing arts. As one of the UK’s leading youth theatres, YMT maintains the highest standards of tutoring, training and direction with each course being delivered by professional practitioners who have a wealth of experience in the theatre industry including the West End, National Theatre, the RSC, Edinburgh Festival, National Tours and Fringe Theatre.
YMT Skills Courses are residential (meaning you’ll be staying away from home) and we provide the highest level of 24-hour pastoral care for all young people whatever their age. This includes for a range of disabilities and personal issues.
