The Academy gives musical theatre classes which combine singing, drama and dance for children aged 4 to 16 years. Our fun and dynamic classes are designed and delivered by our team of highly trained and fully professional teachers.
The school is split into age groups and all workshops are age appropriate and work for all abilities at all levels.
After a fun filled warm up of exercise and drama games the class are then split into smaller groups to take part in Drama, Singing and Musical Theatre work shops.
When working towards a show the group will very often rehearse in small groups and as a full cast.
We produce two shows days a year at the little Theatre in Wells. EVERY child who attends the Academy is invited to take part. Each Class has their very own show so everyone can have a speaking part if they want to. Our staff often adapt and write the plays to suit all the children taking part and their personalities. The children have an input in the devising and content of the shows.
All our Saturday classes are taught by at least two teachers and two assisted by older students from the senior school. All staff are CRB checked and hold a current first aid certificate.
Our New Elite drama group on Wednesdays is for older students that wish to study drama at the next level exploring more techniques and theatre styles.
