Jigsaw Performing Arts School Balham
Drama, Dance and Singing Classes for Children in Balham
Welcome to Jigsaw Performing Arts School in Balham
Our Performing Arts Classes take place every weekend during term time and are for children from 3 -18 years.
- Jigsaw was established in 1995 with a desire to pass on the joy of performing arts.
Every student can benefit in some way from our performing arts classes. Whether they wish to form a firm foundation for a professional performance career, or to unlock their hidden talents or increase their confidence whilst developing valuable social skills.
However, what all students enjoy is having fun through drama, singing and dance classes, while making lots of new friends.
All our 3-6 year olds at our Balham School attend a 90-minute session divided into three sections of dance, drama and singing.
Our older students attend a three-hour session comprising an hour of drama, an hour of singing and an hour of dance, each with a specialist coach.

Jigsaw Arts provides training in all three disciplines in order to create a well-rounded performer. To establish an environment that builds confidence, regardless of individual ability, students are divided into appropriate age bands. All students will be challenged to their full potential. The three age groups rotate between the three disciplines.
The sessions are designed to develop the children’s confidence, focus and social skills from an early age, giving them a head start in life. It also provides a great introduction to performing arts for students wishing to take part in our more advanced course from 7 years upwards. To ensure each child gets personal attention there is a maximum of 16 students per class.
Children are introduced to basic stagecraft – through stories, plays and poetry. This encourages self-expression and stimulates the imagination, while developing focus.
Our dance activities are designed to improve children’s posture, co-ordination and spatial awareness. Through fun and funky routines, children develop a basic dance vocabulary.
An introduction to basic vocal exercises and rhythm is provided to children, through their enjoyment of singing along to a selection of musical theatre and pop tunes.
Twice a year family and friends are invited to watch a presentation or show.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to put their performance skills into practice.
All teachers are specially trained by Jigsaw Arts to work with these age groups.
Students are awarded certificates at the end of every year that they attend. We are rewarding commitment and effort rather than ability as we feel every student has personal objectives within the course. Students who reach 3 years or more are then awarded medals every year.
During our technique term, students concentrate on building and improving their skills, exploring many areas of the performing arts. During this term, parents will be given a written report on their child’s progress. The school manager is also available for ongoing verbal feedback.
Jigsaw Arts Management is our theatrical agency. It represents children and young people from Jigsaw Performing Arts schools.
We give our students the chance to audition for professional work, using the strong link between Jigsaw and the performing arts industry.
