Youth Courses

Young Gaiety

The Gaiety School of Acting offers drama and musical theatre classes to kids aged 4-19.  Check out our wide variety of classes below – from weekly classes in Bray, Malahide and Temple Bar, to camps for Easter and Summer.

Term One runs October 3rd to December 12th (no class on 24th October) 

The GSA will reopen for in-person classes on October 3rd. This year we are staggering class times and reducing class numbers to allow for social distancing. To learn more about how the GSA is putting your health and safety first please watch the below short video. Due to the change in class times PLEASE take note of your updated class time, and make sure you book in advance to secure your child’s place. Malahide and Temple Bar Classes are now on sale – thank you to Young Gaiety Bray parents for their patience as we finalise our venue for 2020.

If you are interested in joining us please see our New Student Guide.

You can also get an insight into life at GSA from the perspective of a current student here, or via this link to our recent RTE Jr appearance.
