Does my child need to attend Shine Performing Arts School to be on SPA Agency Books?

Yes, although we do not charge a fee to be on our SPA Agency books. Children who attend Shine Performing Arts School are put forward for professional work.

How do I find out if my child has been accepted?

Once you have completed the contact form we will schedule you for a free taster session. After this session we will discuss next steps.

How do I find out if my child has an audition?

Your child will be suggested for all eligible briefs and if the casting director requests an audition they will do so via the agent and SPA AGENCY will then contact you. This may take the form of a face to face audition which may request the child to be seen in London at a set time and place or alternatively submit a self tape audition by a nominated deadline. Parents do need to understand that these castings do not happen very often and it is a small industry so it is not advisable to refuse to do an audition or to attempt to change times. There is a high expectation as to the level of commitment required in terms of time and support for the child.

Does my child need a professional portfolio to apply?

No, we provided professional headshots

How long will my child be on your books for?

All children will be on our books as long as they are enrolled at Shine Performing Arts School. 

Can you guarantee my child will work in the industry?

NO, unfortunately we do not have any influence to which child will secure work. It is not possible for any agencies to guarantee any child work. We are sent specific briefs from clients, and it is our job to present to the client children on our books who fit the brief. It is the client or casting director who has the final say.

Will my child have to miss school?

Children who book work during their schooling hours will always be licensed by us via their Local Education Authority. This is to safe guard children and their guardians.  

why do i need to complete a contact form?

A contact form needs to be completed in respect of each child prior to them attending so the school is fully aware of any medical details and any contact details for next of kin should a problem occur. This is all part of the safeguarding process.

Shine requests this prior to the FREE TRIAL so valuable teaching time is not spent on administration during the lesson although staff are always happy to talk to parents should the need arise. It also helps the teacher prepare for the lesson with the correct number of children.
