Children’s drama classes and holiday courses

Just to say we thoroughly enjoyed today’s show. A very immersive theatre experience with all the kids – younger ones and older ones – clearly pulling together and demonstrating commitment, humour and pride. It is so lovely to see your kids (even when they are nearly teenagers) happily skip off to for a week in the holidays and develop not just drama and dance skills but teamwork, creativity and empathy too. The 9-5 format works brilliantly for work commitments too.

Both girls are having a lovely week – full of enthusiasm for the show and very proud of the sets…looking forward to the show tomorrow.

My girls (9 & 5) have just finished their term in Yourstage on Saturday mornings. It has been so lovely to watch them grow in confidence and they’ve had a really fun time in the process. Of all the activities we do / have done, this is by far the most popular with them. They’ve come out each Saturday buzzing! The staff obviously work really hard to make the courses and performances a success!

Thank you Yourstage Drama for an excellent summer course. The attention to detail and care you’ve shown with the children was evident through the production and beaming smiles. Thank you, highly recommended.

Can’t recommend Yourstage Drama enough! My three year old has just finished a week’s summer course and absolutely loved it – so much so, he’s going back next week! The week was topped off by an amazing show, so lovely to be able to watch some of what they’d been up to for the week! Fab teachers and one very happy three year old!

Molly and Erin did a taster session at Pitshanger Playcentre on Monday and were fantastic. They managed to hold the attention of our little ones. Not easy at the best of times especially as it was outside. The girls were professional, polite and the little ones loved them.

This is my 7 yr old’s second term at Yourstage Drama and he loves it. We are greeted each week by upbeat staff who the children seem to adore. At every pick up he comes bouncing out having really loved the 2hr session. The end of term show was brilliantly done and my husband and I nearly fell off our chairs when he performed in a fully choreographed number from Matilda….he was brilliant!

My daughter just completed her first term at Yourstage and absolutely loved it. I had no idea what to expect from the end of term performance and was unbelievably impressed by what I saw. I was so surprised to see such young children remembering such complicated dances and the acting was brilliant. More importantly all the kids looked like they were having a great time. The thing that I’m most pleased about though was that since doing the course I’ve seen a noticeable difference in how confident she is in reading out loud. She now reads with expression and really enjoys it and I’m certain that this is because of her time at Yourstage. Thank you so much.

My son loved the Yourstage summer camp. His words “The best week of my life almost as good as watching West Ham”
B Pearcescott, August 2016

My son attended the Easter drama course and loved it. The first day he fell to sleep in the afternoon after he got home and stayed asleep until the next morning (clearly a good use of energy). He was very keen to go back each day which is unusual as he’s more often quite reticent about new things. I will definitely be sending him for the Summer term.

My daughter had attended dance lessons before and was showing little coordination. She can now dance as part of a line up and has grown in confidence. She absolutely loves the drama lessons and the staff have really supported her. I would highly recommend these classes-the end of term show was great!
V Fowell, March 2016

My son has loved every second. I have seen his confidence grow and the show the children put on yesterday was fab! He will definitely be continuing next term- I thoroughly recommend Yourstage to everyone. Thank you!
C Coleman, December 2015

My daughter was new to Yourstage this summer and had a fantastic time. She loved the mix of activities and the inspirational older kids. The final show on Friday was really special and I was delighted with her increased confidence and capability after just one week! Thanks Yourstage! I am sure we will be back.

I was so impressed with your show at Questors theatre. We were mesmerised To learn that most of those performances were highly shaped and instigated by the children themselves (like the Glee numbers) was amazing! Yourstage has done a brilliant job.
