High-class training for a career in performance



Do you want a career in performance?

Coming to Millennium is an exciting opportunity to learn about performance a stone’s throw from the West End. Here we do things differently – you’ll find out what it’s like as if inside a professional company. As soon as you step through our doors, you’re no longer a student. You’re taught by professionals who are active performers, choreographers and directors. You start building your professional reputation from day 1.

The show goes on at Millennium – even during the pandemic.

Isolation In Isolation


Following such an extremely difficult year for our industry, we’re so pleased and grateful that a return to some normality seems possible. Thank you to our students and staff who have worked tirelessly to carry on regardless. We are so very proud of you all!

Our small class sizes and spacious facilities mean we have been able to continue to teach our full student cohort while maintaining social distancing rules, when allowed. This means our students have not missed out on any of their physical training and we realise what a special gift that has been to college.

Millennium Performing Arts is a small private college in the heart of London. Small means you get far more direct contact with your tutors and more opportunity to learn with your peers; we take care of each other, just like a family.

At Millennium, you get the very best technical training. But you learn more than technique. You develop the confidence to step into any audition and shine.
