We are so excited to announce the opening of our new Performing Arts Academy! We offer Saturday classes for talented young performers aged 4-18 in drama, singing, and dance at St Luke's Church School, Tiptree.

Our classes not only offer the best pre-professional training to our students, but also help them to develop their confidence, communication skills and creative thinking. Most importantly all this takes place in a supportive and encouraging family environment where our student's happiness and well-being is our number one priority.

TAPA Young Performers is our main, three hour session for students aged 6 - 13. The students have separate classes in all three disciplines of dance, drama and singing, they will not only have the opportunity to develop their technical skills and confidence in these disciplines, but will also have the chance to prepare for performances on larger scale productions at the end of the year. TAPA Young Performers is a great class for any student that enjoys performing but may also want to work towards exams in I.S.T.D, LAMDA and Trinity Guildhall Musical Theatre.

TAPA Seniors is our unique programme of pre-professional training for students aged 14+. The afternoon is split into classes focused on singing, drama and dance. Senior students are given opportunities to perform in festivals and competitions as well as being given the best training for auditions and examinations. TAPA Seniors is ideal for students who are preparing for professional vocational training, auditions, examinations and more importantly ideal for those who love performing!
