The classes will be divided into 3 age groups consisting of:

5yrs to 8yrs

9yrs to 11yrs

12 plus

Singing Lessons:

Our singing classes will offer a mixture of songs, including Musical Theatre numbers, as well as vocal exercises with the aim of encouraging confidence.. As well as group singing students have the opportunity to sing solo if they wish; we enourage this but it is not a requirement.

Dance Lessons:

Our dance classes will be a mixture of modern, jazz and street dance. Not only a great way to exercise but also to nurture strength and co-ordination. There will be a combination of group numbers and solo numbers.

Drama Lessons:

Our drama classes will encourage imagination, creativity and to work as part of a team. Improvisation, script reading and role play will be encouraged.
