Former Pupils Anna Rose and Georgia – Congratulations

Our congratulations go out to former pupils Georgia Ware and Anna Rose O’Sullivan for promotion in their respective occupations.

Firstly, Anna Rose who is currently with the Royal Ballet Company has been promoted to Soloist! Wow fantastic, much deserved and well done.

Secondly, to Georgia who is currently with the Phantom of the Opera cast in the West End and has been promoted to the role of Meg! Georgia is still involved with our Dance School teaching Ballet Technique on Sunday mornings

We are so proud of you both.    

West End Matilda Final Auditions – Congratulations

A very big congratulations to Abby Stockwell and Jorja Hockley for getting through their preliminary auditions into the Final audition for the West End ‘Matilda’.

Although they weren’t chosen to take part in ‘Matilda’ on this occasion it has provided them with valuable experience for future occasions, and with so many children going for these parts made them realise how close they actually came.

Sophie, our Musical Theatre teacher, must also be congratulated for developing them to such a high standard, recognising their potential to act in Matilda and then putting them forward for these auditions. 

For those that wish to do Musical Theatre whether for enjoyment and/or future work in the entertainment industry we do have some spaces in our Saturday 12-2pm class for 13-18 yrs and 3-5pm class for 7-12yrs.

Please phone our School on 01895 631858 or email Suzanne at ‘suzanneware@sky.com’ for further information

LAMDA classes

LAMDA classes
We have a number of LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) classes in our school timetable with a new one opening on Saturday 7 January 2017 for 8-14 years.
These classes are designed to improve children’s elocution, articulation, acting and performance in order to give them the skills and confidence to succeed in life. Our teachers are professionally trained to coach children in these skill sets which culminates in globally, OFQUAL recognised examinations. These examinations at Level 3 are also included in the current UCAS tariff, with a Grade 6 Diploma currently being 40 points.

The other LAMDA classes we have are:

Tuesday 4.45pm-5.30pm for age 5-8 years

Tuesday 5.30pm-6.30pm for age 7-12 years

Thursday 5.30pm-6.30pm for age 13+ years
