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.

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.

Really impressed with Perform. It does seem to be making a real and positive impact on my son's confidence and communication - and this is after only a few weeks. Its a wonderful thing to see.

– Mrs Pearl Doherty

The beaming smile you see when Annabelle finishes a class with Oliver is so wonderful to see. She has grown in confidence and thoroughly enjoys singing and dancing all the time. Love, love, love the class and wish we could all take part!

Archie just loves Perform and whilst only having been doing it for 4 or 5 weeks, I was so impressed with the show yesterday - he cant wait for next term and was asking if it started today! we feel with have found something that really keeps Archie engaged, focused and catches his imagination.

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.

It is the highlight of their week! Both my children really enjoy the class and the CD is on all the time at home - they love the stories and spend lots of time dancing around our living room!

My children are delighted with Perform! It is their favourite activity of the week.

Love that you are able to make-up classes if you miss and the small class size.

Kelly is such an enthusiastic and friendly teacher. My son cannot wait to get to her class and comes out so happy! He loves the apps and always wants to listen to the CD in our car!
