The Academy will run during term time with workshops during the school holidays.
Each week students will participate in singing, dance and drama classes, an hour in each class and two fifteen minute breaks.
The classes will be divided into 4 age groups consisting of:
3yrs to 5yrs (Diddi Dani's - See below)
6yrs to 8yrs
9yrs to 11yrs
Introduction to music, dance and acting for 3 to 5yr olds. An hours class using musical instruments, props and an introduction to basic dance movements. Emphasis on fun and confidence building.
Our singing classes will offer a mixture of songs, including Musical Theatre numbers, as well as vocal exercises with the aim of encouraging confidence.. As well as group singing students have the opportunity to sing solo if they wish; we enourage this but it is not a requirement.
Our dance classes will be a mixture of modern, jazz and street dance. Not only a great way to exercise but also to nurture strength and co-ordination. There will be a combination of group numbers and solo numbers.
Our drama classes will encourage imagination, creativity and to work as part of a team. Improvisation, script reading and role play will be encouraged.
