Welcome to StageScreen Classes

StageScreen Classes are exciting, innovative, fun and creative courses and workshops for kids, teenagers and adults designed and run by award winning theatre/film director Conor Armstrong Sanfey. These courses are designed to offer unique opportunities for students of all ages. 

Students can start at any age and any experience level. Many students start with Conor as children and work their way up to Diploma level. These diploma courses offer world-wide recognised qualifications.

Class numbers are kept small to insure quality and plenty of attention to each student.


Our adult performance course (available in Rathmines and Swords) is enrolling for term three (which starts in mid-march).
