YATI Values

Making the world a better place through drama…

Affordable,
Professional,
Passionate,
Performing Arts.

YATI (Yattie) believes that the arts can benefit everyone, and that money should not be a barrier to participation and training. YATI is supported by like-minded individuals and organisations to keep its classes at the cheapest possible level.

What does YATI do?

YATI offers over 54 hours each week of high-quality but affordable classes in drama, singing and dance. In school holidays we offer a range specialist workshops and also stage full-scale professional productions. Since 2020 we have begun to offer remote classes alongside our physical classes. We represent young actors from our classes to gain professional work in the international performing arts industry.  We encourage exploration and creativity, nurture talent and help develop careers in the performing arts. We help build confidence and life skills for all our members.
