Theatre School

dancing

A combination of classes in drama, singing and dance for children aged 4 – 16 to get together in a supportive, fun and creative environment.
We take children on a journey from learning techniques, through rehearsals, to a final end of year performance and while performing is our main focus, we aim to build confidence as well as develop skills in the art of theatre.

Drama
Through role-play and improvisation young children get to stretch their imagination, experimenting with words and feelings. By interacting with others they learn vital social skills and can help improve their vocabulary and communication skills.

Singing
We introduce pupils to different rhythms and tempos in music allowing them to challenge themselves with a wide range of songs while improving technique and vocal ability. Working in groups pupils learn harmonies while solo singing will equip the young performers with the confidence and skill to find the meaning of the song and portray characters with ease.

Dance
Working in groups the children learn fun and contemporary routines. We show them how to warm up their bodies to avoid injury and teach them routines in many different styles of dance.
