The NPAS Agency

The NPAS Agency, which started life 30 years ago in Digges Lane, the original Dance Centre, is still an integral and important part of our school. The NPAS Agency represents our students in Film, Theatre, Television and Modelling work. Our school is contacted regularly by Casting Agents and Directors and we will source suitable students for various projects. If we decide to send a student to an audition, we will get in touch with the child’s parents / guardians and discuss the brief for the particular project. If they decide to allow their child to attend the audition, and if the student is successful, The NPAS Agency will look after contracts, chaperones and any other requirements there are relating to the project. We will charge a commission of 15%. This is in line with common practice. All photos taken in Agency Photoshoots will be kept securely on file and may be used by us in castings. Our Agency has always been a popular source of talent, with many of our students appearing in successful television, film and advertising campaigns.
