Dan Croll Masterclass
The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts is a specialist university level institution for performers and those who make performance possible. Based in the Georgian quarter, we offer eight integrated three-year degrees, three one-year Foundation Certificates, a primary school and a part-time performing arts academy for 4 to 19 year olds. We were co-founded by Sir Paul McCartney (our Lead Patron) and Mark Featherstone-Witty RNOM OBE (our Principal). Many people associate us with Music but we also teach Acting, Community Drama, Dance, Management, Sound Technology and Theatre Performance Design and Technology.
