What we do- Hipshot focuses on building confidence and friendships. Each class is taught by a professional performer working in the industry. Hipshot founder and director tends to stear away from drama and focus soley on entertainment ie comedy, music and dance.
History- Founded in 2012 Hipshot Youth Theatre now boasts over sixty members aging from 5-18 years of age.

Founder- Chris Taylor founded Hipshot Youth Theatre in 2012 with a huge production of Bugsy Malone at the Ayr Gaiety theatre. Chris is a local actor/writer and producer and has travelled throughout the country touring with shows such as Singing I’m No a Billy he’s a Tim and has been a regular performer at the Glasgow Pavilion this past 2 years. Chris is extremely passionate about nurturing young local talent and helping them prepare for the big bad world of show business if that is the path they have chosen. Chris is by far the biggest kid in the youth theatre and this helps bring the rest of the members out of their shells. Chris’s motto is, “If everyone looks like an eejit then no-one looks like an eejit!”
