What to expect from a Theatretrain class
All of our theatre classes in Derby include dance, singing and drama classes for children and young adults, which not only gives them good grounding for a career in performing arts but also boosts their confidence in the real world
It’s more than steps! We teach the technique of movement in a variety of styles. Dancers learn to engage their thinking and feeling.
It’s more than making up scenes. Our performers learn to create characters, develop situations and use atmosphere and focus to make it happen NOW.
It’s more than singing a song together. Our performers learn to bring feelings to give to their audience and how to tell the story.
The performer learns how to be offstage, how to be onstage. How they enter, how they exit. There is a lot to learn and this is where the fun begins – in the space we make for theatre.
Whether they sing, dance or act our performers learn to OWN their material, OWN their space and express themselves with confidence. It’s all down to the power of the group and the teacher.

Inspiring children to succeed
Part of the learning process is to look back on what they have learnt. The classroom is a safe environment and the teachers positive and caring. The group grows together as it develops its skills. Awards are made for progress and attendance. Every one of our performers is valued as part of a team who take to the stage with passion and enthusiasm. The fun is in doing that well.
