Our Kids groups

Minis

  • Wednesday
  • Times: 16:05 to 16:55
  • Monthly subscription to classes: £19
  • Trial cost: £5
  • Content: Musical Discovery
  • Kids Age group: Reception to Y1 (Age 4 to 6)
  • In these classes, the kids will learn fun nursery rhymes, Disney songs and be involved in the shows as chorus. These classes are designed to be fun, while learning about rhythm and keeping a tune. Our games are designed to build their confidence, in preparation for performing on a stage and to make friends f=with the other children. We love bring the performing arts to Irlam and Cadishead with singing, acting and dancing!
 

Stars

  • Monday and Wednesday
  • Times: 17:05 to 18:55
  • Monthly subscription to classes: £38
  • Trial cost: £10
  • Content: Stepping stone into Musical theatre and Film Making
  • Kids Age group: Y2 to Y3 (6 to 8)
  • In these dance, singing, acting and film making classes, the kids have the opportunity to audition for solos in our shows. All kids will be in the show chorus. The games we do are aimed at building confidence for performances, and in this group, we encourage the kids to shine by doing things on their own in front of the group. This could be as simple as pretending to be a lion, for the other kids to guess. We teach the kids rhythm by showing them simple choreographies to the songs they are learning. They will also be introduced to film making. At this age, we encourage coming up with film concepts, acting (no heavy dialogue) and basic framing. We love bring the performing arts to Irlam and Cadishead with singing, acting and dancing!

Juniors

  • Monday and Wednesday
  • Times: 17:05 to 18:55
  • Monthly subscription to classes: £38
  • Trial cost: £10
  • Content: Musical theatre and Film Making
  • Kids Age group: Y4 to Y6 (Age 8 to 11)
  • In these dance, singing, acting and film making classes, all kids are encouraged to work on solos (not compulsory). We do games to build their confidence, help them make friends and bond as a team. The roles they can audition for start to have more dialogue to learn. There are more moves to remember in the dances in this age group and we start to encourage them to add “style” and emotion to their performance. In film making, they become more hands on. We explain the camera in more detail and they are more involved in the breakdown of the script. We love bring the performing arts to Irlam and Cadishead with singing, acting and dancing!

Tweens and Teens

  • Monday and Wednesday
  • Times: 17:05 to 18:55
  • Monthly subscription to classes: £38
  • Trial cost £10
  • Content: Musical theatre (solo opportunities) and Film Making (more hands on)
  • Kids Age group: Y7 to Y11 (11 to 16)
  • In these dance, singing, acting and film making classes, we teach, not only singing techniques but performance techniques, to capture the audience. The dances have a lot more moves and we remind everyone to use their facial expressions. Roles are more dialogue heavy, requiring more memory work. In film making, we expect the kids to have bonded enough in the games to really support each other as a team and be able to run scenes quite independently. We also have kids breakdown all the characters and props with use from the script. We teach them attention to detail in filmmaking. We love bring the performing arts to Irlam and Cadishead with singing, acting and dancing!
