Professional Acting Academy and Award Winning Talent Agency offering unique industry training in Screen Acting, Film & Television Production and Screenwriting
We educate our students to equip them with the necessary skills, tools, knowledge and psychological preparation which are essential to succeed in the film and TV industry
Through an engaging, exciting and collaborative environment, we endeavour to develop highly competent actors who exhibit a proactive and professional attitude towards their career, craft and education. We encourage the development of a number of important transferable skills which will aid students in their personal lives, school education and working lives
We believe that in order to teach acting you must have trained in it yourself at a high level. All YAFTA tutors are drama school trained, have professional screen acting experience in mainstream film & TV work, are paediatric first aid qualified and hold DBS certification when working with children or vulnerable adults
Whether you’re a teen or adult, beginner or more advanced actor, our weekly acting classes are taught by trained acting professionals. Classes are available in Leeds, Harrogate, Sheffield and York
