ACTING: Our Acting classes are designed to teach students the craft of acting. They are a great way to build confidence and explore creativity in a safe and fun environment. Students work on improvisation exercises, scripts, monologues and self-devised pieces and students perform regularly in front of the class which provides the invaluable opportunity to become comfortable in front of an audience.
PRE-SCHOOL PROGRAM: READY SET DANCE is a performing arts syllabus designed specifically for Pre-Schoolers. Through exercises such as balancing bean bags, working as a team with the parachute, singing on the microphone, and playing musical instruments, the classes extend beyond dance to develop skills such a teamwork and confidence. The lovable characters TWIRL and FREEZE will soon be inspiring our TPS Pre-Schoolers as they embark on their performing arts journey. READY SET DANCE has been developed using the knowledge of successful dance teachers who have been running classes for this age group for over thirty years. Targeting ages two to five years, the syllabus is perfect for both boys and girls in this foundational level of training.
MUSICAL THEATRE: Musical Theatre classes will develop skills in three disciplines – acting, singing and dancing. Students learn how to combine all three disciplines into a musical performance. This class is a 3 hour per week class consisting of an hour each of acting, singing and song & dance and is one of TPS’s most popular classes. Students learn from 3 different tutors who are all specialists in their discipline and work collaboratively to prepare students for all musical theatre performances. This course has proven to take the shyest of children and turn them into confident young performers.
MUSICAL THEATRE PERFORMANCE: (18-25 years Audition Only) Our Musical Theatre Performance Class is focussed on preparing students for the professional industry. These classes are only open to students who have had extensive training in Singing, Dancing and Acting.
TV & CAMERA: Our TV & Camera classes are designed to provide you with a basic acting technique whilst giving you the opportunity to explore and develop the skills and techniques required to work with cameras – both in a professional casting and on a TV / Film set. You will learn the difference between acting for stage and acting for TV / Film. Topics covered include: camera techniques, industry terminology, television commercials, casting etiquette, personal ID’s, and script work. Work is filmed and provided to students weekly so that they can review their work.
