All tutors, care providers & play workers  are passionate in their delivery and care, maximising the most of their expertise allowing young people  to achieve the best outcomes and thrive as individuals. Sessions are planned using creativity, dance / arts history in education, youth work, play work and  as a result young people are actively learning a structured programme. 

Tailoring bespoke projects to suit a schools particular needs and objectives. 

From our experience working in many different schools we have seen that the use of Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre, play and youth work helps young people realise their potential, the perceived benefits of which build individual life skills such as:

Confidence
Concentration
Team building
Language and communication skills
Leadership
Cognitive development
Cross lateral development
Motor skills development

Empowerment
Emotional intelligence & awareness of others
Fitness
Understanding boundaries
Understanding of self and self-worth
relationships with peers and adults
Disability awareness

The combination of these skill-sets develop the awareness and understanding that comes with performance art as a discipline.

"In all my years in primary education, i have never seen a class so engaged, so energised, so free. And in a discipline that usually provokes fear! A charismatic and skilful delivery combined with an empathetic manner guarantee that children not only make progress but do this while having the time of their lives."
