Fantasia Academy of Performing Arts is a performing arts school situated in the medieval walled town of Fethard, Co.Tipperary.
We provide all three elements of the Performing Arts with classes in dancing, acting and vocal technique to children, adolescents and adults.
At Fantasia Academy, we strive for all students to learn the techniques and art of performance along with building confidence, learning social skills, making new friends, coordination and movement along with of course having fun.
Throughout the year there will be opportunities for students to take examinations in all three disciplines, in acting, singing and dance.
To showcase our student's talents we will produce a live show in the Abymill Theatre for all parents/guardians, family members and community to see at the end of the school year.
