The Complete Package

It has taken us many years of hard work but this month sees the realisation of one of our main goals here at The MGA Academy of Performing Arts.  We never viewed MGA as simply a Musical Theatre Academy or Dance School.  Our aim was always to develop world-class training programmes in the disciplines of Acting, Singing and Dancing and combined Musical Theatre Arts. Alongside this aim we have also strived to set ourselves apart from other training providers by creating, within the walls of MGA, a centre of professional level opportunities and industry contacts for the benefit of our graduating students here in Edinburgh.  We have succeeded!

From this month the MGA team realise their dream of  training students on Full-Time courses not only in Musical Theatre but also in Dance and Acting.  A true centre for multidisciplinary training in the Performing Arts right here in Scotland!

The MGA Academy of Performing Arts  is owned and run by performers with formal, practical training from the countries leading Drama and Dance schools and each have continuing professional careers within the industry.  The leading lights at MGA can actually DO what they train their students to DO and they continue to do so for the benefit of all who train with us.

A winning team that continues to develop and thoroughly enjoy the journey! Join us!
