Our performing arts classes in Royston
All of our sessions at Theatretrain Royston are led by professionals in an inclusive, group-based environment. We want your child to have FUN while they learn from some of the best in the industry, immersed in an impressive and enjoyable performance programme.
Classes for 6-18 year olds
Our weekly sessions take place at Stage Right Studios and Coombes Community Centre, Royston, covering the 3 main principles of performance – acting, singing and dancing.
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.
