During the term children will focus on various skills within dance, work on taught choreography, take part in group creativity, and learn to effectively improve performance. Working in groups to show routines to other peers will help boost their confidence, dancing to a wide variety of music including classics and latest hits. Street Dance allows children to express themselves and enjoy what they can do with their body through music that they can relate to. These classes run all day between 9.30am and 2pm.

In the younger classes children are introduced to a varied repertoire consisting of musical theatre, pop and jazz, so that they are able to develop their individual musical ears and learn to pick up new melodies quickly. There is focus on vocal expression, phrasing, breathing and dynamics to convey the right mood. As students progress, lessons explore a more varied collection, introducing them to key musical figures and songs. Harmonies are more detailed, with common singing technical terms used consistently in class. General vocal technique areas are covered to gain a broad understanding, with an emphasis on breathing and articulation. Classes with older students are encouraged to aim for a high standard of work, and to be more explorative in their listening outside of class. Attention is given to finer details to help achieve a more precise result with focus on phrasing, rhythmic awareness and microphone technique. These classes run all day between 9.30am and 2pm.

The main aim of the BRIT Kids Theatre class is not only to develop skills and techniques, but overall confidence in performing. The theatre classes at BRIT Kids allow students to be creative and develop work that they might not get the chance to create at school. The removal of grades and written work allows them to explore their own imaginations in an uninhibited way, which produces some very interesting work and allows each student to better understand their own strengths, weaknesses and passions when it comes to acting. As they move through BRIT Kids, students will work with different teachers and different approaches to theatre.
BRIT Kids Theatre classes are not about working to a tight script; instead, children are encouraged to improvise, work on physical theatre and develop their own characters. Scripts are then written or adapted by the teachers, with the students in mind. The result of this is that the productions are unique, fresh and often challenging, allowing students to really own their parts. We believe that what goes on in the weekly workshops are just as important as the productions. These classes run all day between 9.30am and 2pm. This class goes well with Singing and Dance.
Acting for screen is a beginner/ intermediate course that aims to prepare young performers for the world of TV & Film whilst building up their confidence in front of the camera. We cover all the basic acting skills needed to be natural and convincing, as well as the technical jargon that one might hear on set. Each student will be given a toolkit to analyse text to a high standard, putting what they have learnt into practice through performing monologues/ duologue to camera.
The course is for students with a sense of maturity and an interest in being in front of the camera. However, this course can be a huge opportunity for certain students to confront their fears around appearance and body acceptance. At the end of every lesson footage is deleted in front of students unless specified. These classes are one and half hours and run 11.00 - 12.30pm and 12.30pm-2pm. Please note, children will be filmed in this class and they will appear in show reels, therefore the GDPR consent form will need to be completed on application.
