Welcome to ITW Studios, Dublin, home of The Independent Theatre Workshop Academy of the Performing Arts.


Check out the different Studios to see what we have on offer: ITW Dance Studio, ITW Drama Studio, ITW Singing Studio, ITW Performance Studio, ITW Tots Studio and the ITW Holiday Courses.  

We recommend that all students combine classes from our different Studios to get maximum benefits and value from their time at The Independent Theatre Workshop.

To get the most out of ITW we recommend that all our students take Creative Drama with ITW Dance as a basic membership package, in classes divided according to their school year. 

ITW Members can add additional classes and avail of generous members-only discounts for classes that include Speech & Drama, Jazz Dance, Tap, Singing, Lyrical/Contemporary and ISTD Modern Exam classes.


Weekday and Sunday classes are available individually or as part of a bundle. Two or more weekly classes at the non-member rate equals ITW Membership and allows further classes to be taken at the discounted members rate.


On Saturdays individual classes are not available, and students are expected to take a combination of Creative Drama and ITW Dance (membership) and are welcome to add further classes at a discounted price.
