Hi I’m Jodie! I’m a South Bristol girl with a love for theatre and the arts that started when I was old enough to sing into a hairbrush! It was a joy and inspiration to spend my weekends watching my mother perform in her amateur dramatics shows. With a spark of passion ignited in me, I joined a drama group and grasped every performance opportunity.
My love for theatre only grew, and I’m delighted to have made my dream a reality by setting up my own company in my home town of Bristol where I can pass on my passion and skills. I want to give all children the opportunities that I had as a child, but locally and at an accessible cost.
Your children matter to us. You will find all our classes to be fully inclusive, accessible, and so much fun. We are proud to have created a safe and welcoming weekly club where your child can make friends, learn new skills and look forward to returning each week.
We know how keen you will be to see your little star in action, so we will invite you to yearly performances to follow your child’s progress and see all they have learned with us.
We celebrate with end of term parties and award ceremonies to reward their hard work and give them a sense of achievement. There is always something to look forward to.
Drama and dance classes offer so much more than just learning to perform. They allow a child to use the extent of their imagination and be creative.
Our classes aim to build confidence, encourage communication and social skills and promote self-esteem.
Within a drama class some of the things we cover include voice control, physical theatre, script work and stage direction. Children are supported and encouraged by trained and experienced staff to explore and further their talents.
Not only do our classes teach children important skills for performance, they also offer a real sense of purpose and belonging.
