Theatre Workout offers weekly classes during school hours, and after-school clubs, to enhance your school's creative curriculum.
Multiple studies have proven that regular engagement with the arts advances children's and young people's development by building confidence, nurturing creativity, and improving attainment across the curriculum! With regular classes children can learn and develop at their own pace, developing skills, learning techniques, and exploring the curriculum through creative play.
Inspired by our work with West End shows and schools since 2006, combined with the LAMDA Exam syllabus, Theatre Workout's weekly classes offer tailored Drama and Performing Arts training for primary and secondary schools across London. The curriculum for each school is developed in consultation with the school, and can link in with other aspects of the school's curriculum and the needs of students.
Classes combine taught activities with student-led practice, often resulting in performances at the end of each term. Additionally, students may have the opportunity to sit accredited LAMDA Exams across a range of disciplines.
