The South West’s Premier Stage School
Providing high-quality performing arts education and entertainment for young children in the South West.
Our Performance Arts Classes
Our Nailsea classes, Saturday Workshops and Vocal Dynamics take place at our bespoke studio space on Blackfriar’s trading estate in Nailsea. We have a main studio with 2 smaller breakaway rooms, providing parent’s waiting areas and additional rehearsal space for small groups or soloists.
In addition, upstairs is a kitchen with seating space which is used as a social area for our senior members and can also be used as an additional rehearsal room. The main studio is equipped with full length dance mirrors.

Dances featured music from, ‘The Lion King’, ‘An [...]
