What  we do

We are committed to the creative development of our students, and focus on confidence building and performance work. We keep our classes fresh, fun and engaging whilst getting to know each of our students individually.

 

Dance

Our dance classes focus on a mix of hip-hop, modern, musical theatre and commercial dance.  This helps our students develop co-ordination, agility, rhythm, spatial awareness and poise.   There is an option to progress through a series of accredited and professional examinations.

Drama

Our drama classes focus on characterisation, improvisation and dramatisation. This enables our students understand how to build a character, and helps develop spontaneity, imagination, focus, confidence, verbal, and physicality.  There is also an option to progress through a series of accredited and professional examinations.

Singing

Our singing and musical theatre  classes encourage creative expression through musical theatre pieces and through group/ solo singing.  This helps our students develop an understanding of stagecraft, performance, discipline and team work.  The focus on voice, performance, projection, listening skills equips our students for stage and for life.
