The New Performing Arts &
Musical Theatre Stage Schools

Singing, Dancing & Acting are taught by professionals from Stage & Screen who energise and build confidence in every student. To give a child confidence enables them to have fun and excel in all areas of life, not just the performing arts.

When a child has confidence, they grow as a person and achieve so much more. Learning to perform through singing, dancing & acting is the perfect way to help a child perform through life. 

 

Singing, Dancing & Drama Classes

Our weekend performing arts & musical theatre classes help children and teenagers of all abilities to improve as performers and become confident have-a-go individuals.

#EveryChildAchieves

It’s no big secret that children & teenagers involved in the performing arts enjoy major payoffs in school. Studies show that children who sing, dance & act their hearts out are more likely to be recognised for academic achievement and they tend to have enhanced cognitive, motor, and social skills. But the benefits don’t end there. Performing to an audience can enrich your child’s life in all sorts of surprising ways.

Self-Confidence  - our students learn to trust their ideas and abilities by quickly appraising and reacting to new situations.. Confidence gained from learning performing arts skills applies to school, career, and life.

Imagination - Being creative and learning to make creative choices helps students to be better at thinking of new ideas, allowing them to view the world around them in new ways.

Empathy - Understanding characters, roles and the subtext of plays and musicals allows students to relate better to different situations, backgrounds, and cultures. It encourages them to show compassion and tolerance for others.

Cooperation - Theatre is a collaboration of different players and in many cases the quality of any performance reliance on an ensemble performance. Combining the creative ideas and the abilities of all participants is required for the best outcomes. This requires all those taking part to engage in discussions, feedback, rehearsing, and the performance.

Concentration - Playing, practicing, and performing will develop the ability and skills to be able to focus the mind, the body, and the voice.

Communication Skills - It seems obvious to say that drama, theatre and the performing arts improves verbal and nonverbal communication, but it is worth stating that this benefits young people through their life. It improves vocal projection, articulation, tone of speech and expression. Importantly is also develops listening and observation skills.

Laughter & Fun - Drama brings elements of play, humour, and laughter to those taking part – improves motivation and reduces stress.

Emotional Outlet - Acting and drama games allow students to express a range of emotions and encourage them to understand and deal with similar feelings they may be experiencing. Aggression and tension are released in a safe, controlled environment – often allowing for a period of reflection afterwards.

Physical Fitness - Performing, even the most passive performances, requires intensive movement over a prolonged period. Many performing arts exercises improve flexibility, coordination, balance, and control.

Memory - Rehearsing and performing lines and movements will improve memory.
