2011 saw the first collaboration between Beauville Arts and the British Section of the Collège and Lycée International de St Germain-en-Laye. These weeks give students the opportunity to enhance their performing arts experience whilst both creating and cementing friendships, getting to know like-minded students perhaps from other year groups or college sites.
A big congratulations to the cast of ‘FAME’ who performed at the Salle Jacques Tati last Toussaint. Click here to see photos.
