It’s more than steps! We teach the technique of movement in a variety of styles. Dancers learn to engage their thinking and feeling.

theatretrain childrens acting class square 01


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.

theatretrain childrens singing class square 01


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.

Main School

Usually our biggest class where students come together in their age groups to learn ensemble songs, work on their acting skills and dance their socks off!

Classes are divided into the following age groups: 6-9 year olds, 9-12 year olds, and 13-18 year olds. These classes become rehearsals for performances in the second part of the year.

All students have the chance to perform every year.

Events and performances

In addition to shows that we produce here in Exeter locally. Theatretrain Exeter are part of the national network of centres and participate in large-scale performances in major venues including the Royal Albert Hall and major West End theatres.

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 are 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.
