Join in with Horsecross

Our successful Join In programme offers a wide range of classes across the artforms to engage young people from across Perth and Kinross. All Join In activities link to the work on our stages, providing unique, one-off opportunities for our members to work with a range of professional theatre-makers, musicians and dancers. From acting, singing and dancing to playing and creating music, we have something for you. Our Join In activities are designed to inspire creativity, fire the imagination and help you to explore new talents and skills.

Alongside learning new skills and developing talent all Join In participants will work towards an end of year performance at the Horsecross Youth Arts Festival as well a number of other performances throughout the year. In the past our participants have performed in the BBC Traditional Music Awards, Celtic Connections Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, National Festival of Youth Theatre, National Theatre Connections Festival, Perth Dance Festival, Perth Christmas Lights Switch-On and many more.
