…revolutionising the performing arts in Kenya 


NAIROBI PERFORMING ARTS STUDIO is a unique new academy headed by British Theatre Director Stuart Nash in partnership with Kenyatta University, Kenya National Theatre and NTV offering after-school and weekend classes in Drama, Dance and Voice Training/Singing to students and adults as well as the opportunity to act in world class plays and musicals at Kenya National Theatre

The idea a of a performing arts academy came from a lack of opportunity for anyone with a talent in acting, dancing or singing, to be able to develop that talent. NAIROBI PERFORMING ARTS STUDIO  is based in the Kenya National Theatre complex and brings these 3 disciplines of the performing arts under one roof for the first time in Kenya.

Courses are taught by acclaimed professionals in the theatre, film and TV industries including professors and tutors from Kenyatta University and Sauti Academy.

We also offer Master Classes by celebrated actors, singers, directors and choreographers, including Ian Mbugua – Directing/Acting; Willis Chimano (Sauti Sol) – Singing, Edwin Odhiambo (Judge Edu) – Dance/Choreography; Mkamzee Mwatela (Acting).
