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.

Communication has always been very clear, friendly and efficient. Emma felt at home immediately and we appreciate the interest in every child's well-being. The facilitators are really kind, energetic and professional. Thank you!

My daughter looks forward to her Perform class every week. I really enjoyed watching the end of term show and I couldn’t believe how well she followed direction. So glad we found you! It’s everything we wanted for Maddy and more!

– Mrs Clare Martindale

I was really impressed with the care Miranda took to find out about Ellie before she started and just how much she cares about the development of each of the children in her class. It's great to see how much the children enjoy it and I'm so pleased with how welcome Ellie has been made to feel. I would have no hesitation in recommending Perform to anyone!

My daughter has started to really shine since attending Perform. You can hear her enjoyment from her classes when she speaks about her teachers and what they have done. Her nursery has noticed, she is a lot more confident and outspoken.

Both Sophie and Josh love going to David's class, it the one activity that they both ask 'is it time to go yet'. I am so impressed with David, he really knows how to get the best out of the children.

– Susan Brown

Polly absolutely loves it and as a family we're all enjoying the songs. I'm very impressed with the quality of the script and music for Hercules Beat - a very professionally run organisation.

– Liz Gray

It's nice to see Zain remembering what he gets up to in class. He is a very shy type and I am glad to see he is coming out of his shell.

– Dr Shagufta Herwitker

I'm hugely impressed by your company, from the actual lessons; to the show literature; to the songs that are available on the app; to the follow up e-mail after each class! Wow, wow, wow. THANK YOU!

– Vanessa Imondi

I’m very impressed by the pro active, thoughtful way each session is run, the recap at the end for parents is encouraging. It is great to know that Ethan is not just being ‘entertained’ for the hour, but pro actively being taught new life skills - and he always comes out absolutely full of life.
