What is LEATSS?

LEATSS is a collaborative, project-based, week-long, residential summer school for actors, developers/directors, music theatre singers and writers/devisers. It is particularly suited to amateur enthusiasts (and those who may be a little hesitant) who wish to develop and improve their practical skills, knowledge, understanding and capabilities.

Our aim is to enrich, nourish and nurture. To do this we provide expert professional tuition within a friendly and fully supportive environment. All tutors have a wide and impressive track record as professional theatre practitioners and teachers and our tutor-to-participant ratio is high. With 4 tutors and 40 to 50 participants, we generally have one tutor to 10 or so participants.

The work is creative and inspiring, the pace impressive but rewarding, the atmosphere friendly and supportive. Because the emphasis is on process and not product (how we can do it, not how well do we perform it), we can encompass a wide range of age, experience and skill.

COVID-19: As a result of restrictions, the 2020 and 2021 live Summer Schools were cancelled. However, during those two years LEATSS branched out and organised a number of virtual theatre classes as, LEATSS On-Line and  'LEATSS-On-Tour' online workshops. In July 2021, we offered a week-long live workshop encounter in Copenhagen. 

Since then, The July residential summer school has resumed but the short, virtual courses have also continued.
