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.

My daughter loves her Perform sessions, all the games and exercises, and especially the singing and dancing. She's always full of beans and full of confidence when she comes out of her class, and loves practicing the songs and dance moves. Her producer Laura is fantastic and really knows how to engage those kids- both live and online!

My daughter is always happy when she comes back from Perform and she’s always eager to show me what she's learnt. The joy on her face is enough for me to know she really enjoys it.

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.

Fantastic ! Hannah loves singing and dancing and is very expressive so this is a lovely way to channel her creativity ! Also I hope it will help her concentrate a bit more without distraction........!

We are really impressed with the organisation, from the app, CD, stickers etc to the lovely weekly email sent to give details on what the class covered. Our entire household and extended family now know all the "under the sea" songs off by heart!

Matilda loves it more than any other after school activity. She is excited every Monday.

Ollie and Phoebe are both great with the children and their enthusiasm is astounding. Despite not knowing any other children in the group, Zoe looks forward to the sessions all week and has felt very welcome from the start.

– Mr Craig Harrison

I am so pleased I  found Perform, I think it's the perfect balance for this age group of fun and skills. Robbie has always been incredibly approachable and teaches with a great enthusiasm that has meant Martha has settled into the classes very quickly. Thank you.

– Anna Young

Reagan has always struggled with focus and concentration and, since starting school, has had some confidence issues. Perform is amazing. The teachers are awesome and I am amazed with how engaged he is. He is truly happy and content.

– Ms Amanda Shapton

I’m absolutely blown away by how much my daughter loves this class! The teachers are so enthusiastic and encouraging that I feel I’ve hit gold in finding this class! I cannot praise this class enough!
