Are you looking for a fantastic children’s performing arts school for your child? If so, look no further than Theatretrain Sutton who offer kid’s performing arts classes in singing, dancing, and acting on a weekly basis.
Our dance classes for kids offer numerous physical and emotional benefits. Dancing is a great form of exercise that promotes cardiovascular health, strength, flexibility, and co-ordination. It helps children develop overall fitness and improves their motor skills. Dance classes also involve a wide range of movements that enhance a child’s motor skills, including balance, spatial awareness, agility, and it helps them to develop control over their bodies and often improves their ability to perform complex movements. In addition, dancing encourages children to express themselves creatively through movement, providing a platform for them to explore their emotions, ideas, and individuality, therefore boosting your child’s confidence and self-esteem.
Our singing classes for kids encourage physical and mental development. Singing is a great stress reliever as singing has a calming effect on kids and can help reduce stress and anxiety as it releases endorphins, which promote relaxation and a sense of well-being. Singing classes also helps children develop their language skills, including vocabulary, pronunciation, and comprehension as the repetition and melody in songs enhance their ability to learn and remember words. Singing classes also help with cognitive development as singing stimulates various parts of the brain such as, memory, attention span, and problem-solving skills, while also enhancing creativity and imagination. In addition, singing helps to provide a powerful outlet for emotional expression as it allows children to express their emotions through music, and in doing so helps them to process and communicate their feelings, whether they are happy, sad, excited, or even anxious.
Our acting classes for kids offer a creative outlet for children, which is fun and enjoyable, while also offering opportunities to enhance their academic work. Acting classes nurture a child’s creativity and imagination but also encourages them to think outside the box and find creative solutions which can benefit them in various aspects of their life. Acting often throws up challenges during rehearsals or performances, such as forgetting lines or adapting to unexpected situations, and by navigating these obstacles, children develop problem-solving skills, resilience, and adaptability. In addition, acting requires children to improvise or memorise scripts, cues, and blocking, and this helps improve your child’s concentration, focus and memory skills.
What Can Children’s Performing Arts School Do for your Child?
Being a part of a theatre school often involves group activities, such as ensemble work – whether as part of a choir, a dance troupe, or a theatre production – and teaches children about collaboration and teamwork. Your child learns to work as a team, respect others’ ideas, compromise, and cooperate toward a common goal and these experiences are skills that can be applied at any time in your child’s life.
Mastering a performing art requires discipline and focus and this helps children learn the importance of regular practice, setting goals, and managing their time effectively, which can transfer to other aspects of their lives, such as academics or extracurricular activities.
Finally, performing arts exposes children to different cultures, traditions, and art forms, helping them appreciate diversity, develop an understanding of different perspectives, and gain insights into various historical and cultural contexts. Participating in performing arts classes can have a positive impact on children’s personal, social, and cognitive development, promoting self-confidence, creativity, communication skills, and fostering a love for the arts.
