Artist Training

We strive to work with new and emerging artists and recognise that to do so, we need to provide them with meaningful professional development opportunities.

We build artist training into our creative process. It’s fundamental to sparking inspiration and ideas as well as giving space for emerging artists to explore understand our unique approach to making theatre.


Training is offered to emerging practitioners on an ongoing basis and provides opportunities to observe, co-deliver and participate in Highly Sprung education and community-based projects.


We offer shadowing opportunities on an ongoing basis, offering the opportunity for trainees to develop individual practice and understand the approaches and techniques used by Highly Sprung in education.


We offer mentoring to any artist learning with us to help develop their experience and understanding of facilitating arts and education projects.


Rehearsal placements are available on an ongoing basis for both academic and personal development, depending on suitability and availability.


There are currently no audition opportunities, but watch this space!

What People Say

Training with Highly Sprung enhanced my teaching practice and equipped me with a new skill set. I learnt to approach workshops as a narrative, and this has provided me with a structure to my teaching that I can be creative and play with.
