Street Jazz

Our street jazz classes cover a wide range of contemporary dance styles from hip-hop and street locking to funky jazz and are highly physical and modern in style. Think music videos and Diversity. Each teacher will bring their own style and enthusiasm to these classes.
This class is not examination based but is ideal for those who like to dance and have fun.

Drama

Our classes are aimed to encourage creativity, build confidence and enhance performing ability whilst still having fun and learning.  Students have opportunities to create their own work, explore different skills, read scripts, perfect their ear for accents and work on their improvisation skills. There are regular performances, competitions and audition opportunities and children are also given the opportunity to take LAMDA exams.

Singing

Our classes are challenging, fun and aim to build on self esteem and confidence; we strive to bring out the singer in everyone. Classes explore projection, improving articulation and tone. All standards are catered for and pupils will cover anything from musical theatre to pop songs. The children will sing as an ensemble, with solo opportunities increasing ability, confidence and skill.

Musical Theatre

Our musical theatre classes give our pupils a chance to combine singing, dancing and acting all in the one class. They will work on songs, dances and scenes from a variety of musicals working towards their overall performance skills and presentation.

Performers Troupe

By invitation only we have junior and senior performance troupes who perform at numerous events from local fetes and residential homes to professional pantomimes and corporate events.
