Applicants don’t need any experience but must be enthusiastic, possess a strong desire to persue a career in the performing arts and a keenness to learn. Auditionees will need to prepare a short 1 minute performance. Successful applicants will commit to classes every Saturday from 10am until 4pm in Cardiff and must also be available to take part in intensives and special workshops, trips, rehearsals and showcases during the half term and summer breaks. 

Showcases are collaborative and are an opportunity to be a part of unique cross-disciplinary performances that are exemplary. Academy fees are £20 per session, but some scholarships are available for students who would otherwise be unable to afford annual fees, along with travel expenses. These will need to be applied for and will be awarded on individual merit. 

Here’s what a few previous Academy students have to say to potential students: 

  1. “I would tell them that Jukebox Academy is a healthy and friendly environment that specializes in all different types of performing arts activities E.G circus, dancing, acting, singing and many more”.

 “That they should definitely do it because it’s amazing and Jukebox is one big family”. 

  1. “Do it, just do it if you don’t do it then you won’t learn new life skills and travel the globe and make new friends and discover things that you thought you couldn’t do but you can you can do anything you put your mind to but if you want to experience those things then please join Jukebox Academy”. 
  1. “That they should definitely join because it is so different to any other performing arts academy in Wales”.
