In the community

Glenlyn Academy is dedicated in supporting the local community.

Our Workshops for Schools programme introduces primary and secondary school pupils to musical theatre, dance, drama and singing through a series of workshops led by a team of teachers, choreographers and directors from the Academy. The workshops give children of all ages a unique and exciting insight into theatre and performing.

Glenlyn Academy Workshops

Glenlyn Academy workshops are tailored to suit each school and take place during normal teaching hours. Workshops are either held in School or at Glenlyn Academy's own studios in Sydenham, south-London.

Typically workshops take place in the morning and afternoon with a performance to parents, friends and other students at the end of the school day.

The Academy also runs training workshops for teachers and other school staff members, exploring how drama, theatre, dance and performance can be incorporated into the school curriculum.


Drama & Singing Classes begin with a series of warm-up exercises and games designed to introduce the children to the team, help increase their confidence and have a bit of fun. These are then followed by vocal technical exercises exploring the correct ways to sing. The students will then be taught a song, typically from a musical.

Dance classes start with a fun, physical warm-up to music. The students will then be taught a dance routine, usually to a current, popular piece of music.

Musical Theatre classes use the skills they have been taught in their Drama & Singing and Dance Classes and combine them together into a Musical Theatre performance.

The Dance Demo & Q&A is the chance for the children to watch some of Glenlyn Academy's senior students perform. The children will then get the chance to ask questions.

The workshop is concluded with a performance to staff, parents and other students. All participants will then receive a Glenlyn Academy certificate recognising their achievement.
