7-9 Year Olds

Stage 1 Drama

Building on the skills developed in ’Mini-Dramas’, students now begin to explore the role of the voice and body in acting, as well as continuing to use theatre games, exercises and scenarios to explore drama in order to enhance both their theatrical and social skills. The emphasis on play and fun is maintained, and they are also introduced to a variety of disciplines such as improvisation, movement, devising, text and characterisation.

Our Stage 1 Drama Courses are 75 minutes per week for a 33 week year.

Stage 1 Performing Arts (Stage 1 PA)

This course allows students who enjoy singing and dancing to do an extra 80 minutes per week focusing on musical theatre skills. Students will spend half their time on singing skills, being introduced to musical theatre material and getting opportunities to work on ensemble and eventually solo singing. They will also spend time on musical theatre dance, exploring movement work, as well as basic stagecraft for musical theatre dance.

Our Stage 1 PA courses are intended to be taken in conjunction the Stage 1 drama courses. However they can also be taken on their own.

The courses last 80 minutes  each week for a 33 week year.

Dance Courses

The Academy’s courses in Ballet, Tap and Modern provide a great opportunity for students wishing to explore the world of Dance and take their dance skills to a more advanced level.

Our Dance courses provide comprehensive tuition each week and students work with highly experienced tutors exploring technique and choreography, increasing their dance vocabulary and expression through movement. We highly encourage students to make more than one genre in order to broaden their dance skills.

More experienced students have the opportunity of working towards ISTD exam grades.

If you have never done dance before, then your best starting point is to sign up for a Beginner’s course in Modern, Tap or Ballet. Once you are ready, you will be then moved to the appropriate grade. Experienced dancers should contact us on the dance enquiry form if they wish to be admitted to a more advanced level.
