Children's Performing Arts Schools

Performing Arts, TV , Film and Dance 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 School or drama club you can be sure they will be learning lots of interaction skills that will help them to communicate with both other children, parents and their teachers. Drama is a great way to improve listening and literacy skills, 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.

Here at 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.

It is quite incredible how adult classes have become quite the extra activity for adults. Taking acting or improvisation classes can be a great way to improve your comedy, listening and social skills. You will also make some great new friends!

Many schools also offer post graduate courses if you are late starter and want to discover if you have something to offer the industry then we can help you find information on what is available to you.

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.

It doesn't matter how old you are it is never too late to follow your dreams or just try something different, who knows what you might discover!

We do hope you find a suitable class, course, club or holiday workshop on our site, please spread the word and help make THE best online resource for Performing Arts Schools.
