Dance, Singing and Acting classes in Nottingham
The standard of teaching we offer at Theatretrain is exceptional. Students learn from professionals who are passionate about what they do. They follow a carefully thought out curriculum that enables performers to reach their full potential.
What to expect from a Theatretrain class
All of our theatre sessions in Nottingham include dance, singing and acting 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.
Theatretrain Nottingham Classes
At Theatretrain Nottingham we run weekly sessions at The Rushcliffe Spencer Academy, Nottingham which include dance, singing and acting classes.
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.
Coming soon – 90 minute classes to introduce make believe through words, song and movement.
This weekly 30 minute class is for those Main School performers who want to work within a group on challenging material. Hard work but fun and illuminating.
Events and performances
In addition to shows that we produce here in Nottingham locally, Theatretrain Nottingham 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.
