Weekly Classes

We offer classes for 3 different age groups:

After a difficult 6 months for our young people: social interaction minimised, friendships distanced, learning in lockdown, daily routine changed and everyone now doing their best to find a new normal, none of us could have predicted just how much our children would be in stark need of these 4Cs.

We have taken our time to work with National association of Youth Drama, Education Authority and Creative Business Support Group to ensure that we can reopen in the safest yet most familiar and welcoming way we can, in line with the Out of School Settings government policy. This means there will be a few changes to how BYT operates but we know that you are BYT family, will be patient with us as we get right.

Below you will find all of our face to face classes available to book from today. These will have VERY limited numbers due to restrictions. We will also have an online weekly offering for those who want to remain virtual for now.
