Based in Cirencester, we offer professional tuition to young people, aged 4-18. We aim to create a fun and energetic environment for our students, giving them the chance to form life-long friends and become well-rounded individuals. We offer three terms of tuition that culminates in a full-scale performance to the highest standard with a live orchestra, full set, props and costumes.

Learning by doing; every student will develop their skills, technique and knowledge in all three of the major aspects of theatre and the performing arts: Acting, Singing and Dancing.  Not only this but they will be constantly working as a team to produce the same fun-packed goal. For our younger members, we offer a separate 90-minute class. Our classes for 4 – 7 year olds use the performing arts to develop later life skills. This culminates in specially adapted, teacher-led mini-performances during the year.
