How we are different

Unlike traditional stage schools, child development is at the heart of everything we do.

Rather than teaching rigorous techniques, memorisation and repetition to produce a 'perfect performance', Perform uses drama-based games, exercises, songs and dances in an imaginative and fun way to help boost child development. 

As a result of this outlook, there are many other key differences:

  • Individual attention - small classes, a high teacher/child ratio and regular written feedback ensures your child will get the most out of every session.

  • Original content - age-specific songs and scripts are written in-house to ensure that they fire your child's imagination and help boost the 4 Cs: confidence, concentration, communication and coordination.
  • Centrally run for quality and consistency - we are not a franchised business. Our curriculum has been developed over many years of experience and our teachers are directly contracted by Perform. We recruit and train the best so you can be certain your child is receiving the highest quality teaching and care whichever Perform school they attend.
  • End of term performances and open workshops -  at the end of each term, you can watch a lively show so your child and their new friends can proudly show you what they’ve learnt. Each half-term, there is an open workshop so you can see how your child is fitting in to the class. 
  • Fun between classes - sticker posters, videos, CDs, DVDs, script packs and mp3s and mobile apps to download. This helps to keep young imaginations active in the week between sessions.
  • Over 300 venues - with hundreds of venues running at weekends and on weekdays, there's bound to be a class near you. Click to find your nearest venue.

George loves the classes. He is much more confident and more expressive; singing more and communicating more effectively.

It’s so well organised and prepared for. The classes themselves my daughter who can be shy at times, is really enjoying her time there!

– Ms Yodet Gherezghiher

This isn’t a class, it’s a life-changing experience. Thank you for everything you put into it, it doesn’t go unnoticed and makes all the difference. I just wish everyone got the opportunity to do Perform... Thank you doesn’t even cover it.

– Angela Cahill

We love Perform and the fact that it is an encompassing program, developing a range of skills. My children have developed self-confidence, ease while speaking in public, and love of performing, that will be beneficial to them, no matter what they choose to do for a career.

It is the best money I've ever spent on an after school activity. The children are totally engaged for the entire session. They absolutely love going and it is lovely to see their faces of sheer pleasure, excitement, laughter etc. I am so impressed, Oliver is absolutely amazing.

– Sarah Laughlin

The Perform is amazing. The teachers are very professional. My son asks me every day when the next class is. I'm very happy and my son is too!

– Miss Meglena Stefanova

Fab classes, my daughter is very shy and socially awkward, she’s tried many extra curricular activities over the years but Perform has been the one class she actually wants to go to without any pushing from me!

Lovely inclusive teachers and parents always kept well informed.

– Miss Sonja Bradley

I am blown away at how amazingly well Isabelle has come along since starting Perform. Her confidence has already improved so much and I can also see a difference with her imaginative play. Isabelle has really come out of her shell.

– Miss Samantha Cowdrey

My son loved Perform from the moment they visited his school, and I've been bowled away at how much he enjoys and looks forward to each class. All the material and themes seems perfect for his age. I can't believe that we're soon to come to a performance where he'll speak in front of everyone and sing, it's wonderful!

– Mrs Catherine Bingham

Isobel loves perform, she practices the dances and songs at home, it’s really brought out her confidence.
