Theatretrain Portsmouth Sessions
Our weekly sessions take place at Mayfield School, Portsmouth, covering the 3 main principles of performance – acting, singing and dancing.
Main Company (6-18yrs)
These sessions bring students together in their age groups to learn ensemble songs, work on their acting skills and dance their socks off! They become rehearsals for a performance as the year progresses, and all students have the chance to perform each and every year.
Junior Ensemble: Minis (4-5yrs)
Every dream starts somewhere… In these 90-minute sessions our young performers cover all three disciplines and learn the basic skills of imagination and stagecraft. Most importantly, we make sure everyone feels comfortable, creating a vibrant atmosphere to learn in!
Advanced Dance (10-18yrs)
For those young performers looking to take their dance training to the next level! 90 minutes of professional dance training in Musical Theatre Jazz, Commercial, Contemporary, Conditioning, Technique and more.
There are also exciting dance performance opportunities including DANCE LIVE!
Saturday 6th January – Saturday 23rd March
What To Expect From Your Theatretrain Experience…
Our professional choreographers instruct young people in a huge range of dance styles and techniques, letting them collaborate as a group and find the power of movement.
We empower your child to express themselves without judgement, encouraging them to take on characters, tell creative stories and follow their passion for acting.
We encourage all our students to build their confidence through song, embracing technical and real-world techniques used by singing professionals.
