Stage 2 Classes

In these middle years your child is in a core phase of knowledge acquisition – we will encourage further growth and discovery by introducing them to fundamental methodologies and practices used with the performing arts industries at an appropriate entry level. This includes but is not limited to…

  • Vocal & Physical Confidence– opportunities for our pupils to play and perform in solo and ensemble contexts, using their voices and bodies with increasing accuracy, fluency, control and expression.
  • Team Work– sharing responsibility for performances in order to communicate to an audience as a group.
  • Performance Skills– Performance will be based on creative engagement with the material and careful preparation. Learners interact with each other and demonstrate an awareness of relationships between characters.

Theatrical Experience

Our theatrical experience programme aims to offer a holistic understanding of all areas of the performing arts to your child. Our classes cater from 3 Yrs through to 14 Yrs and the delivery approach will be tailored throughout their journey to accommodate the needs and requirements necessary of their particular age group.

Theatrical experience classes encourage an openness of the imagination, establish a safe place of creativity, promote teamwork ,enhance social/personal skills and generate confidence. They invite new thoughts, ideas and approaches, seek to instil fundamental performance disciplines and allow us to share our work with a supportive audience of family and friends at the end of the term.

A typical session may cover everything from drama games, vocal/physical warm-ups, acting, singing, dancing, devising, improvisation and much more!

We can’t wait for your child to join us on this exciting adventure – what are you waiting for? Jump in! Take Part.

Dance Club

In this session we cover a number of different styles and techniques including Tap, Street, Contemporary & Jazz.

It is a non syllabus class so children in this session don’t work towards dance exams but we focus on building technique, have many performance opportunities and also have a lot of fun along the way…This class is a great way for children to socialise, exercise and learn the importance of teamwork!

NATD Ballet

During our ballet classes students are introduced and develop their technique at the barre and in the centre. Focusing on body alignment, core strength & stability and performance.

Pupils will gain improved posture, poise and grace. Other benefits of our classes include increased self-confidence, improved listening and discipline and greater self-esteem. Ballet is the foundation to all dance styles and therefore will strongly benefit pupils training in other styles of dance.
