Ignite Arts Academy provide performing arts style workshops in Music, Dance, Drama and Costuming to the Waikato youth.
Attendees are generally between 6 and 14 years of age. For our intensive day-long workshops, attendees ages are more specific depending on the workshop on offer.

How are our holiday workshops different from other school holiday programmes?
At Ignite we have years of experience in delivering top quality, fun, performing arts classes within a new purpose built arts environment; including music studios and dance studios. Our instructors are  highly skilled, with many years of experience in; percussion, guitar, vocal, dance, keyboards, visual art, drama, costume creation, set design and more. Their personal abilities are matched by their passion to ignite pupils with a desire to learn, to identify areas of talent and grow in confidence. 

Our popular holiday workshops provide a teaching/coaching environment where young people are encouraged to recognise and develop their talents and potential. We cater for a range of abilities whether early beginners or for those already with some level of expertise. 

IGNITE Holiday Workshops are an OSCAR approved holiday programme (contact your local WINZ office for more details).
