Our Classes

Little Stars

After teaching Ballet to the younger age group for several years and finding that most children found the classes hard work and ‘not much fun’, we devised these new sessions especially for young children with lots of energy that really want to perform and build up confidence.

This class is fast-paced, fun and really grabs the attention of the younger performer.
Drama, Singing and Dance is covered in this carefully devised session. Our Little Stars learn rhymes and tongue twisters to help improve speech and dress up and act out different characters to help build confidence. We also learn fun and funky dance, including a full dance warm up incorporating all the basic steps for children of this age, teaching routines to all the latest chart hits and Disney songs. We encourage all of our pupils to sing in groups as well as individually, learning songs from Disney films as well as children’s musicals.

Little Stars are given the opportunity to take fun ‘Rosette’ exams with the IDTA dance board. At the end of each term we invite family and friends in to our class to watch a fun, low pressure, fully costumed short performance of all the things that we have learnt during the term. Past shows include Little Red Riding Hood, Finding Nemo, Peter Pan, The Gingerbread man and Snow White. Book early to avoid disappointment, as this is one of our most popular classes.

Juniors

Drama, Song & Dance

A fantastic class, which enables your child to study all three disciplines in one session. This is a complete performance class, geared towards training your child in all the necessary techniques to perform on TV and Stage.

There are plenty of opportunities for your child to show off their skills, as we produce a short show at the end of each term so that family and friends can enjoy all the fun of watching, whist building up the confidence of those on stage. LAMDA acting examinations are available for those who wish to take them, as well as IDTA dance exams, an annual West End Variety show, as well as numerous local festivals and shows.

Our junior pupils are split into 3 concentrated groups according to age and rotate around 3 highly skilled teachers spending 30 minutes on each discipline of drama, singing/musical theatre and dance. Past shows and productions that we have performed include Annie, Oliver, Tales of Narnia, James and the Giant Peach, Harry Potter, Matilda, Les Miserables and Bugsy Malone.
