Part Time Classes
The part-time school offers classes on Thursday evenings and Saturdays. Classes are usually 50 minutes in length and are generally divided into age groups: 4 - 6 years (primary classes), 7 – 10 years, 11 – 13 years and 14 years and older. Primary drama & singing classes are shorter in length. Primary dance classes are 45 minutes in length.
Our part-time school teachers are from our full-time school or are teachers who have been actively involved in, or currently are involved in, professional performance. The emphasis of our classes is on vocational development with good training. We aim to build confidence and communication skills and the atmosphere of the school is friendly, informal and very busy.
We do not present productions or take exams. However parents are invited to visit classes towards the end of term.
Some dance classes are graded in ability - these classes are marked 'Selected'. Unfortunately new students cannot apply for these classes until they have been assessed and invited to join.
