Combine imagination with technique!

Whether your child is shy or outgoing, Gateway Academy classes provide performance and life skills for youths to express themselves confidently. In these classes, students develop acting skills integral to all theatrical disciplines, including ensemble-building, storytelling, and character creation. Not only are students expanding their physical, vocal, and communication skills, but they are also learning transferable skills such as confidence, focus, listening, and trust-building. Our students get the unique opportunity to experience training inside a professional theatre in a safe and supportive environment. In addition, Gateway students are given exclusive access to some of our Mainstage show rehearsals and ticket discounts for Academy families!

NEW! Acting for Stage and Film (Ages 14-18)
We are proud to offer Acting for Stage and Film, the first youth acting program in the lower mainland to integrate instruction in both Theatre and Film performance!

Students will be honing stage/theatre acting technique and ensemble building throughout the year, with an intensive six-class introductory module for film performance within the program. Open to students of all levels of experience who are looking to build confidence, find their unique creative process, and explore skills for performing both on stage and on camera.

“Gateway was pivotal in helping my child gain confidence. I highly recommend for kids who are shy or who struggle with social communication.”
