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!

 

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!

The children are engaged and clearly enjoy the class. The activities are age appropriate and they are encouraged constantly. The show is going on despite lockdown and the challenge is being tackled with energy and enthusiasm.

– Mrs Nicola Newton

Hubert was extremely shy during the first class but he couldn't wait for the next session, and is still the same! He laughs a lot and takes part in each activity. Katie is amazing. Hubert loves her cheerfulness, cheekiness and the amazing way she connects with children.

– Ms Teresa Malinowska

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

Rhia is great, she knows how to engage the children and Wilhelmina always has a wonderful time. It's a fabulous distraction for all of us at this tough time!

– Charlotte Howard

I am blown away. I am so impressed with the content, how engaged both children are and the enthusiasm and professionalism of Charlotte. I didn’t think zoom would work but they have been awesome! Kids finish breathless and with eyes shining and singing their songs. Truly brilliant.

– Miss Jo Robb

I am so impressed with the quality of the class, even though it’s all online. It really has made a difference to Sophia’s mood and confidence and she is always so happy after a class with Kelly. Thankyou for these professional and fun classes!

– Mrs Sally Hart

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

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

Grace has loved every minute of her Friday afternoon sessions. Emily is absolutely fantastic. I think that the timings and length of the session is great and the content is spot on.

– Mrs Ruth Lott

I was looking for something to keep Nora occupied during lockdown and as soon as the first class it finished she came and asked me if she could sign up! I'm really impressed with the whole thing. Everything I've seen and heard is fabulous!
