What we do
The Just Stage It academy strives to give children from across Northern Ireland opportunities that no other local stage school offers, whilst achieving recognised performing arts qualifications. Pupils at the academy have performed in London’s West End, Broadway in New York, and Disneyland Paris. The academy recently performed at the launch of Europe’s Musical Theatre International event in The Leicester Curve theatre and pupils regularly have the opportunity to take part in workshops with both West End and Broadway professionals.
Our aim is to provide children and young adults with the best possible learning experience working with and being taught by fully qualified industry professionals.
We are an international award winning school of performing arts. Our Senior Showchoir are two time winners of Showchoir Ireland, the Irish national showchoir championships, having won in 2015 and 2016. Our pupils also picked up awards at the International Festival of Dance and Performing Arts at Disneyland Paris in 2015, including winning the Senior Musical Theatre category. The academy is delighted to announce that the Senior Showchoir placed third in the American Showchoir Championships in March 2017, with members winning both the male and female Best Voice categories. In March 2018 we returned to Disneyland Paris with members of our Junior and Senior Stage Schools to compete in the International Festival of Dance and Performing Arts again. Pupils from the academy won or were placed in the top three in all their entered categories and in some categories, such as the Junior Sing Starz, our pupils took all three medal positions.
In 2019 we will again be competing at the International Festival of Dance and Performing Arts, both in Killarney and Disneyland Paris.
