Jigsaw was established in 1995 by two actresses with a passion for passing on their love of everything performing arts. The belief in the benefits of performing arts activities for children was the driving force in the creation of Jigsaw and the reason why Jigsaw has continued to grow and become a well established and high quality provider of children’s classes.

Every student can benefit, in some way, from the performing arts. While some join us to build a firm foundation for a professional performance career, others do so to unlock their hidden talents, overcome their shyness or increase their confidence and social skills. However, what all students enjoy is having fun through drama, singing and dance classes, while making lots of new friends.

Children ages 3-6 years attend a 90-minute session divided into three sections of dance, drama and singing. Whilst the students aged 7-18 years attend a three-hour session comprising of an hour of drama, an hour of singing and an hour of dance, each with a specialist tutor. To establish an environment that builds confidence, regardless of individual ability, students are divided into appropriate age bands. All students will be challenged to their full potential.

Fees: 3-6 years £150 per term, 7-18 years £280. Sibling discounts apply and you can pay monthly on direct debit.

Dance classes and events in Herefordshire and Worcestershire
Multiple Areas
Dancefest is the dance development organisation for Herefordshire and Worcestershire, and runs a vibrant year round programme.

Dancefest runs classes and workshops for all ages, for both experienced dancers and people who have never danced before, across the West Midlands.

They include Contemporary, Choreography, Street, Breakdance, Mini Movers, Dance Clubs and Youth Dance. Participants get the opportunity to perform both informally and in the annual showcase.

Dancefest offers extensive education work in schools and colleges, and also coordinates Worcestershire Dance Teachers, to provide networking, support and CPD opportunities for teachers, dance workers and students working with all Key Stages and in Higher Education.

Dancefest leads many projects each year. These vary in size and scale, from one off workshops to site specific performances.

Work is undertaken for community groups, including organisations working with the elderly, disabled people and young people, and it also provides performance and participation opportunities and information for young dancers and choreographers.

Dancefest also designs and manages its own projects, which include Jigsaw, an annual integrated performance project involving disabled and non-disabled performers, the creation of dance films and site-specific work.

Dancefest leads Worcestershire Dance Promoters, which brings together the county’s venues to work on audience development, programming and participation.
