We are the UK's premier Rural Theatre School and we strive to inspire the love of dance and theatre in students of all ages and abilities.

We believe that the primary motivation for the performing arts should be the love of the art, and our aim is to nurture that love and passion in our students.

We welcome students who want to participate for fun, and to build confidence & make friends; exams and performing are not compulsory.

For those students wishing to progress through the examination grades and take their training to a more serious level, we provide the highest standard of coaching to suport our students to excellence, and we provide loads of opportunies to perform at local shows, our own MDTS shows, and at festivals and competitions.

We are here to prove that you don't have to go to London to find the best talent or to get the best training!
