Established in Albany, WA in 1985, Southern Edge Arts (SEA) is a dynamic youth arts community that nurtures the expression of imagination through stimulating performing arts experiences and opportunities. SEA has been a champion of creativity and quality arts practice in young people, building community and encouraging diversity.
SEA has grown to become Western Australia’s largest regional youth performance organisation and has developed a unique approach to skills development and performance making that encourages participation and validates the contribution of young people working with professional artists . SEA has a unique track record in attracting professional artists of national and international repute to support skills development and the creation of new work.
We offer a large workshop program that includes a variety of performing arts and each year develop a number of performance projects that bring members and professional artists together to make quality productions drawing on the skills and interests of both.
Our teachers value celebration and imagination in young people, social and emotional health and excellence and creativity in all their forms.
We seek to encourage the expression of imagination and use the performing arts to add value to community events and gatherings through our community projects.
SEA Central is filled literally from floor to ceiling with crash mats, mini-trampolines, trapezes, stunt gear, ropes and much more. Street Acro & Hip Hop classes are also run at SEA Central.
We also have a versatile studio space that overlooks the building’s main entrance. This inviting space is is home to our drama department and is also a perfect space for our Film Making Program.
