Our Classes


Our dance classes begin with a warm up to music tailored to each specific age group. The junior class focus on fun exercises, whereas inter, senior and advanced classes are much more challenging. Through these sessions we aim to;

  • Increase stamina

  • Muscle strength

  • Flexibility

  • Coordination

  • Self confidence

Once the steps are mastered we look at the technique, style and find different ways to enhance the performance, this is when good acting skills can be a great advantage, and this can change a routine from just being a variety of steps put together into a complete polished performance


The main focus of our Drama classes is for the children to have fun and we use techniques to build confidence and self esteem.

We offer a range of activities that will help support your child, these include;

  • Improvisation

  • Working with others

  • Confidence building

  • Public speaking

  • Presenting

  • Taking direction

  • Voice projection and diction

  • Character interpretation

  • Entrance auditions to full time performing arts school

  • Audition technique

  • LAMDA exams

In addition to our main school we offer an advanced drama class for students aged 13+. The main focus shifts to the more technical aspects of acting. We teach stage direction and a little about the history of theatre. They work on annunciation, evaluate characters; words and actions and determine what motivates them. We also analyse monologues and soliloquies. Our advanced drama class have performed in their own original play.


Our singing classes start with both physical and vocal warm up exercises where the students are taught about the physical process of singing and the relevant parts of the body that are used when singing. We practice;

  • Diaphragm control
  • breathing techniques
  • Vocal development

Singing techniques are then taught through the learning of contemporary, pop and musical theatre songs.

These techniques include: harmonies, vocal phrasing, breathing, diction, voice projection, singing as part of a choir, singing solo or in small groups; as well as advice on how to interpret the song.
