Why choose Theatretrain for your child
Performing arts training for 4-18-year-olds who love to steal the show!
Why your child will love their Theatretrain experience…
The Theatretrain Way was first paved by Artistic Director, Kevin Dowsett, a well-known and respected name in the performing arts industry. Because of his unique experience in both teaching and theatre, students at Theatretrain benefit from intuitive and effective training methods in a realistic theatre environment.
We want our students to walk away from every session with a new skill. They will develop theatrical skills of storytelling, movement, space and sound, as well as crucial life skills like confidence, resilience, teamwork and leadership. Our sessions are focused on harnessing the power of the group, something all performers must learn, capturing the buzz of excitement that will propel their creativity and courage.
A big part of our approach is to organise large-scale events in impressive venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and famed London West End theatres. All of our students get the chance to be a part of these memorable shows, boosting their self-esteem and giving them real-world experience of what it’s like to perform on this scale.
Whether your child loves dancing, acting or singing, they’ll find a place at Theatretrain where they can become well-rounded performers and motivated people.
Theatretrain started welcoming students in 1992 and has since opened more than 60 companies with over 5000 students registered. But why do parents and children keep recommending and returning to Theatretrain? We do things a little differently, putting focus on the practical elements of theatre in a vibrant atmosphere, so your child can learn important skills and make incredible memories that will stay with them for a lifetime.
With Kevin Dowsett at the helm, Theatretrain’s team brings together every key element your child will need to be prepared for a future in the performing arts. Theatretrain is led by a creative team nationally, with each individual company spearheaded by its own team of theatre professionals.
