Brennan Performing Arts

Brennan Performing Arts and Agency was established in 2008 with a vision to create a fun, educational and safe space for children to explore all the wonderful aspects of performing arts.


BAPA is a family run stage school, keeping core family values at the heart of everything we do. With a team of expert tutors and professional artists, working both on stage and screen, we are proud to provide tuition to the highest standard. 

The Brennan ethos is to offer first class training to help young people gain important skills for life. BAPA also looks beyond the training and encourages students to express their creative side and just as importantly to become a more confident young person.


Each class is fresh, new and thrilling. We constantly witness students discovering talents, excelling in performance skills and growing in confidence. Children amaze us with their capabilities and their personal achievements. We are passionate about creating an extremely positive experience for our young performers from the moment they enter our classes. Our goal is to help nurture imagination and a lifelong love of performing.


Brennan Performing Arts success stories are stepping stones for students to realise their full potential. Every child has a creative side, it just needs the opportunity to be unleashed, developed and expressed. We welcome all children aged 4 - 17 years to our academy to experience the joy of acting, singing and dancing.


"From the start it has been the theatre's business to entertain people, it needs no other passport than fun" - Brecht
