Tots

Pre-School

If you’ve got a pre-school drama queen or king, or a tiny, timid little mouse, then Take Part Tots Saturday class is just for them. Come along make new friends, increase confidence and have loads of fun whilst you’re doing it!

Take Part Tots is an introductory class to our ‘Theatrical Experience’ sessions we hold on Saturday mornings. We will be introducing all aspects of theatre skills; singing (learning new age-appropriate ‘show tunes’ and finding out about rhythm, timing and how sounds are formed, dancing (giving our ‘tots’ the confidence to try new dance moves and explore how their bodies can perform) and acting (allowing our budding young actors to role play and practise improvisation and storytelling, developing speech and voice).  Take Part Tots is perfect for building children’s confidence, increasing their social skills and health and fitness as well as giving them a chance to learn new skills whilst having lots of fun!!

By these further years your child experiences rapid change in the form of their transition into secondary education. Our training model follows suit with skills-based workshops within specific areas of Performing Arts.  At this stage they learn to articulate their concepts and thoughts in a rational and confident manner; we aid in this expression and promote positive creative mindsets.

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 or taking part in a Tap 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!
