About Us


SASA School of Performing Arts, formally St Albans School of Acting, was set up by Phoebe Shergold-Willis in 2015, at the age of 18. Phoebe noticed that there was a need for more accessibility to the Arts in her area, especially for vulnerable or under privileged families.

SASA is a forward thinking, part-time performing arts school based in Hertfordshire who have performed at large scale events such as Wembley Stadium and Windsor Castle!

Whether your child wants to expand their skillset and hone their talent or build their confidence and make new friends; SASA is a nurturing, family environment that takes training to the next level with industry professionals at the helm of the faculty.

SASA’s Youth Programme CIC is similar to a charity – it is a platform which will allow us to create even more outreach projects in schools and local the community; giving us the chance to access more funding and give away more bursaries and scholarships to vulnerable and/or disadvantaged young people.

By becoming part of the ‘SASA Family’ through SASA’s Youth Programme, these activities will positively impact young people’s lives from all backgrounds to be guided through the world of the arts, be exposed to professional performance opportunities, professional practice and a team of industry professionals. This will guide and nurture these young people to understand that ‘anything is possible.’

The community of young people we will be supporting alongside SASA’s Youth Programme will benefit from being offered and creating Arts and Community Based Projects as we will be working closely with many local charities and community initiatives to bring together our young people with other community groups.

The other benefit of getting our young people engaged in Community Based Projects, gives the young people something new that they would not ordinarily get access to, and giving them a platform to explore their own voices, opinions and arts practices with other local groups.
