GRANT CARTWRIGHT

My name is Grant and I’m from Belfast in sunny Northern Ireland! I trained in Musical Theatre at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in North London, and I’ve been lucky enough to teach the children at perform for five and a half years now. I’m so thrilled that I get this opportunity to help them learn, grow and play even while we’re in lockdown!

Grant runs Perfom At Home sessions for 4-7s and 7-12s on Mondays from 4:00pm - 5:40pm. Book online.

Favourite thing about Perform?
Transporting myself and the children every class to amazing new adventures in crazy new places - using a little bit of magic and a big bit of imagination!

Best thing about lockdown?
I’ve started writing and recording a whole album of fun songs of my own! Maybe you can help me write some cool new tunes and throw in some of your own words too!

Worst thing about lockdown?
Not being able to get outside and explore. So I guess that means we’ll just have to make our own adventures!

Why Perform At Home?
There is no better way to help support your child’s learning and development during this period than doing it with fun, laughter, games, music and lots of encouragement - all from the comfort of your own front room!

 

HANNAH CONWAY

Hi! I'm Hannah. I am an actor, director and theatre-maker, and I love trips to the theatre. I enjoy reading, dog walks, history and chocolate. Easter is my favourite holiday!

Hannah runs Perfom At Home sessions for 4-7s and 7-12s on Tuesdays from 4:00pm - 5:40pm. Book online.

Favourite thing about Perform?
Being able to be my hyper-self and no-one batting an eyelid. In fact, the kids actually LIKE me being a nutter! I don't get the same response from my husband...

Best thing about lockdown?
The "life on-pause" situation. I am spending some quality time with my own children: using Perform's amazing dance routines for their PE lessons, of course! I'm keeping my creative cap on and using theatre games such as Hot Seating to help my children learn about famous literary and historical characters.

Worst thing about lockdown?
Missing my Perform children's end of term shows. They all worked incredibly hard and I am proud of each and every one of them for their achievements. If any of them are reading this: YOU ROCK!

Why Perform At Home?
Each child deserves to let off steam, socialise, build their confidence and, most importantly, have fun... and on the other hand; all Mums, Dads and carers deserve a hot cup of tea in peace!

 

Jordan Harrington

Hi Everyone! My name is Jordan and I am from Ascot in Berkshire. I am an actor/singer and I trained at Arts Educational Schools, London, studying Musical Theatre. I have been working at Perform for over three years.

Jordan runs Perfom At Home sessions for 4-7s and 7-12s on Wednesdays from 4:35pm - 5:40pm. Book online.

Favourite thing about Perform?
My favourite thing is how I'm able to be as ridiculous and silly as possible in class everyday and how much we laugh. I love seeing the children have tonnes of fun as their confidence grows.

Best thing about lockdown?
Funnily enough, I am a total introvert so I've been loving the alone time! I've been able to use this time to develop my skills, like cooking and writing scripts.

Worst thing about lockdown?
Not being able to see my friends has been the worst for me! I miss them so much.

Why Perform At Home?
Simply because I know that every Perform class is built around giving your children the best fun of week as well as teaching them important, fundamental life skills.

 

KELLY MOYES

Hi Everyone! My name is Kelly and I am a singer from Colchester in Essex, which is where I also studied Musical Theatre. I have worked at Perform for over two years now and enjoy socialising and travelling abroad. Perform blends my passion for teaching and performing into one job - perfect!

Kelly runs Perfom At Home sessions for 4-7s and 7-12s on Thursdays from 4:35pm - 5:40pm. Book online.

Favourite thing about Perform?
Seeing the children's enthusiasm and excitement on their faces each week and watching their confidence soar through the roof!

Best thing about lockdown?
Watching films and eating popcorn!

Worst thing about lockdown?
Missing my mum and not seeing the happy children's faces at Perform.

Why Perform At Home?
It's amazing that we can still continue children's development and have Perform fun whilst at home, it's great for them to be able to switch off for 30 minutes and lift their spirits, whilst the grown ups can hopefully put their feet up and do the same!

 

RHIA COLES

Hi all! My name is Rhia and I am a Perform Producer and actor. I trained in acting at Bournemouth University.

Rhia runs Perfom At Home sessions for 4-7s and 7-12s on Fridays from 4:00pm - 5:40pm. Book online.

Favourite thing about Perform?
Seeing the children's faces light up during our PF adventures and hearing their creative, hilarious ideas!

Best thing about lockdown?
Getting to spend more quality time with the people I live with.

Worst thing about lockdown?
Not being able to see my parents' dogs (Jack and Jenson). I can't wait to cuddle them soon.

Why Perform At Home?
The sessions continue to build on the children's skills; as well as providing fun, entertainment and routine. Plus, I can't wait to see their smiley faces again!

Seeing my children engage in the online classes is a real pleasure - the quality of teaching and engagement with the children is fantastic to see. They both love the classes and finish feeling excited and energised.

– Mr Simon Day

Esme has never sat through a Zoom session before but she sat happily through Perform. She can't wait for the next class. Thank you very much Emily for some peace!

– Mrs Leann Avery

Mia loves Perform and it's great to have the option to do Perform At Home. Mia is always engaged and loves singing the Funky Fairy song. Rhia is absolutely brilliant.

– Dr Atika Sabharwal

My daughter loves Perform. She is always energised by the class and looks forward to it every week.

– Dr Ambreen Shah

Katie is fantastic, and it's lovely to hear Lyra laughing throughout the class. Lockdown hadn't been much fun for her, but it's nice to know that she is happy for half an hour while we are working. She loves the songs and having the chance to share her ideas. It's the highlight of her week.

– Ms Jemma Best

Jennifer is really enjoying the classes and has loved drawing the pictures afterwards. Rhia seems very good with children, making them laugh a lot and I'm impressed by the focus and range of the classes such as learning to introduce yourself confidently, balancing etc.

– Mrs Eleanor Westmuckett

I’m really pleased with the class. Poppy can be quite shy in front of an audience but she really enjoys these classes. It’s great how Perform have adapted the class and have been able to run these at home. It’s been a welcome addition to our week. 

– Mrs Helen Mccaughran

Freya is enjoying the class. She says Grant 'is funny'. From what I have seen he makes an effort to get all the children involved and keeps up his enthusiasm and energy during the class, which I'm sure helps Freya to stay engaged during the online session.

– Mrs Helen Breese

The girls love Perform and it’s one of the few things they have had that’s been consistent through the pandemic and lockdown. Even with classes moving online they have remained active which has been lovely for the girls, especially with schools now being closed and missing their friends. Drou does a fantastic job!

– Miss Crystal Warner

My little girl absolutely loves Rhia's Perform classes and it didn't take long at all for her to come out of her shell and be confident taking part in the classes. Rhia has an amazing way with the kids and works magic at keeping their interest for 90 whole minutes over Zoom.
