Classes are split into age groups (3 – 18 years) and move between all three disciplines to help develop all–round skills. There are always regular opportunities to perform, including the school’s annual ‘Big Show’, which provides the experience of starring in a professionally produced musical in a real theatre. And, because it’s never too young to start, the studio even hosts a special Parent & Toddler class on Friday mornings – perfect for preparing little ones for a place at PSSA!
Stagecraft Dance School, meanwhile, offers midweek evening classes in Ballet, Disco, Drama, Hip Hop, Modern, Tap and LAMDA Class for ages 3 – 18 years, with the opportunity to work toward LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) and RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) examinations.
We also offer imaginative children's birthday parties that sparkle with showtime fun!
