Adults

You’re never to old to ‘Take Part’.  These groups encourage parents and members of the local community to engage with Performing Arts and experience the physical, social and wellbeing benefits that they can provide. Whether it be Musical Theatre, taking part in a Tap or Ballet class, we’d love to hear from you! These sessions promote ‘play’ and ‘creativity’ in a world where we can often be so far removed from our primal instincts in these areas. We like to view it a little bit like Neverland, the place where you never have to grow up!
