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.

A very professional organisation. The energy & enthusiasm from the teachers is impressive. Excellent & useful feedback.

My daughter has loved every single moment of the class and has learnt some dance moves. Naomi has been very welcoming, her energy; inspiring and motivational.

Max always speaks so positively about the classes. It’s enjoyable to take him and watch him flourish.

– Ms Marina Persoglio

Our daughters absolutely adore Perform! Rachel & Zoe are brilliant- warm, kind, fun, engaging and highly skilled. They know exactly how to bring out the best in the children, with their knowledge, experience and infectious energy.

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

The games they choose are fun and are great ways to provide a forum for the children to start to 'perform' without knowing it, giving them safe ways in which to speak out  and get a positive response from the other children, thus building their confidence in front of a wider group. 

– Gemma Moorby

I think Perform is marvellous and you all do a superb job! I am really impressed by how much you achieve with the children, whilst it all firmly remains great fun and not too stage-schooly. Jack has gone from refusing to go in on his first visit, to asking every day if it is 'drama day' yet! 

– Kate Higgs

Imani looks forward to Perform every week. Suzie is so lovely with the children and I love the email feedback every week. It’s great to know what they’ve been doing in class. Thank you again for making Imani feel so welcome.

– Chetna Patel

Millicent really looks forward to coming to Perform. She was already a pretty confident thing but she has really enjoyed being able to express her ideas and imagination. 

– Mrs Melody Clarke

Freja loves Perform class! After 2 sessions she asked me “why can’t it be Perform class every day?!”
