All of our classes are aimed to increase confidence, self-assurance and creative expression which we believe are vital skills in tackling some of the challenges that children are faced with in every-day life.  Children will acquire the outlined skills through the medium of drama and musical theatre activities and processes and we guarantee that you will notice your child applying these to aid their self-development in varying contexts from school work to socialising.  Ultimately, your child will develop strengths in all aspects of theatre performance and street dance technique and will meet lots of new friends!
