All schools offer young children a really great way to build confidence and learn essential life skills that stay with them as they develop into adults. By sending your young child to a part time acting, singing or dance club you can be sure they will be learning lots of interaction skills that will help them to communicate with both other kids, parents and their teachers. Acting lessons is a great way to improve listening and literacy skills and through improvisation children learn how to react appropriately in any situation.

With two children of my own I have witnessed the huge benefits first hand, their drama has been an essential part of their development. The communication tools that they learnt in their classes they took to the school room, home to the dinner table and consequently meal times were always lively with news of their school days. I worry now that families no longer have time to eat together which is why learning life skills at their local Acting school or after school club can be so beneficial.

I believe learning to communicate effectively could really cut down on potential social problems and as they mature into teenagers the skills and tools they will learn from Classes will be paramount to ensuring that they grow into well rounded individuals.
It is our intention to help and guide those interested in the Performing Arts by offering an excellent choice of UK schools for children and adults.

Adult classes for the keen amateur.

One of the most social acting classes I have discovered is Drama Nights a company providing short adult courses in Richmond, Bath and Bristol. The evening classes are held in pubs making a night out a really great ocassion. Use our search at the top of the page to find out more.
