The Orange Team is Emil Dale Weekend School’ pre-intermediate company for dedicated and committed young performers who can expect to be pushed to prepare them for our Intermediate stage. The team is made up of no more than 35 students aged between 11 and 12 years, and take part in technical training across all three performance disciplines (acting, singing, and dancing), solidifying integral foundations for their training.

Our Emil Dale Weekend School Hitchin Orange Team train between 10:00-13:30 on Sundays. They must arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of their classes to sign in.


Although we stream members in age groups, exceptions can be made if a student demonstrates ability beyond their team.
