The Academy offers the finest theatrical training for students of all ages. Whether you are just starting or are a seasoned stage veteran, you will find a course of study designed to increase your talent and theatrical knowledge. The Temple Academy is a supportive, challenging, and creative environment where students will discover and develop their unique skills. It's a path to empowerment, and to unlocking their artistic potential. The Temple Theatre Academy offers a variety of classes in voice/singing, dance, and acting. The staff of the Temple Theatre Academy strives to instill these skills and values in every student: creativity, imagination, collaboration, self-awareness, self-confidence, focus, discipline, trust, and critical analysis.

The Temple Academy has been developed in line with the Temple Theatre's mission to entertain, educate and enrich the audiences on central NC through the art of live theatre.
