Musical Theatre encourage students to be a 'triple threat', training in Singing, Dancing & Acting, allowing pupils to be able to take to the stage and feel confident in all subjects. Our classes follow the 'Associated Board Of Dance' Syllabus enabling student to enter Musical Theatre Examinations. Currently we teach Grades 1-5 in Musical Theatre.
We work closely with our older pupils who wish to pursue a career in the Performing Arts and help advise on Colleges and auditions for their next stage in training.
Street Cheer is a fun mixture of Street Dance, Cheer Leading and Acro developing skills in musicality, rhythm and technique.
