Before every show at the Young Vic, the actors and directors spend valuable time in rehearsal. They have the opportunity to play, interrogate and fine tune a performance before stepping in front of an audience.

For people from other walks of life, there is rarely a chance to rehearse before appearing in the spotlight. The Young Vic’s High Performance Workshop programme has been developed to prepare you for those critical moments when you need to perform.

"A massive thanks to the Young Vic for your talent, creativity and effort in making these superb courses. I know they have made a real difference to the working lives of lots of people at Barclays."

- Member of WIN, Barclays
