They can also audition for our more intensive Musical Theatre classes, thriving Youth Theatre Company - YDA - and our Show Choir for those who are especially interested in performing. Our Ballet Academy is ideal for instilling poise, grace and musicality in children.
Dancing to the latest music from the charts and covering a wide variety of styles, dance moves are geared specifically according to the age and ability of each class. The students can improve their coordination, polish up their technique for the dance floor and keep fit and flexible at the same time. Challenging for the experienced dancers yet attainable for the less confident, our dance classes are funky and fun!
This is an improvisation-based class with the emphasis on learning through fun and theatre games. By cultivating a happy and productive class atmosphere, the students self-expression, imagination, self-confidence and vocabulary are built up, as is their ability to function as part of a team - both on stage and in life. The Senior Drama class is more advanced in content including dialect work, audition skills, characterisation and script work.
he Young Adult class is similar in content but more intensive, preparing the students for a career in film, theatre and life. Geared towards the individual’s needs on an almost one to one basis, the young adult has the opportunity to fine-tune his or her performance skills and to take a more in depth look at particular areas of interest with an experienced teacher. This class also includes regular workshops
