Want to teach?

Our excellent teachers – their passion, skill and professionalism – are at the heart of Perform’s success. 

We set up Perform to offer a new kind of drama class to young children. But our teachers make that vision a reality which is why we are 100% committed to our recruitment and training process.

At Perform, we only hire the best people and give them the training they need to do a great job. We train all our teachers before they begin working for us and we continue to offer training to constantly develop their skills.

Who are Perform teachers?

Perform teachers are working actors, singers and dancers with a professional qualification (drama school/university degree) in the performing arts. They must be all-rounders and able to act, sing and dance brilliantly.

Not only does a Perform teacher have to be multi-talented, they must also have a passion for teaching children and helping them develop the 4 Cs - confidence, concentration, communication and coordination. Having these skills themselves, Perform teachers can be a powerful inspiring influence in a child's life.

What about acting jobs?

Most of our staff attend regular auditions and go off to do acting jobs from time to time. However our teachers never think of their work as "a bit of teaching to pay the bills". For them, working at Perform is a passion and our feedback is that they find the job rewarding, challenging but above all the best fun that they have all week too!

Some teachers work six days a week while others work for as little as two hours. This can be regular work, intensive courses or just occasional work when you have availability. We need teachers to lead weekly workshops, birthday parties, holiday courses and educational workshops in schools.

How do I become a Perform teacher?

If you have a 3 year qualification in drama, dance or singing, you'll need to attend one of our monthly group auditions.

To arrange this, please email your CV, headshot and covering letter to [email protected]

If we think that you are right for Perform, we will contact you to invite you to the next monthly group audition.

If you are successful at the audition, we will check your CRB and references then put you on our teacher training programme. Once you are a regular teacher for us we will provide Refining Trainings to help improve and perfect your teaching skills.

What parents say about Perform teachers

I love how Sian gets to know the child's likes and personality before they even begin Perform and the relaxed, no-pressure atmosphere of the classes.

– Lynda

Bebe-Rose absolutely loves her Perform sessions! We love using the app to practice the songs and she enjoys the games on there too. I'm really impressed by the techniques used to get the children to follow direction and demonstrate that they had learnt the songs - clever teaching!

– Ms Francesca Canueto

Annabelle is great - she is extremely professional and seems very interested in maximizing Claudio's experience with Perform.

– Mrs Louise Derbes

Olivia is just brilliant! My son and daughter are very different characters; Olivia is marvellous with them both. She is encouraging, fun and extremely professional. I have recommended this class to many of my friends and will continue to do so.

– Mrs Mandy Smith

Sian has been absolutely brilliant with Bebe Star. She was initially very nervous but Sian showed patience and kindness that went beyond her working hours. For that I am grateful.

– Mrs Dounia Benjelloul

The teachers are very enthusiastic which makes it fun for the children. We decided to sign Esme up to Perform to help improve her confidence and encourage her to speak up in a crowd. I was really pleased to hear feedback today that she had said her lines very loudly.

– Claire Walker

You all are doing a great job and Ava absolutely LOVES her weekly classes with you. She has blossomed even after only a few classes and her experience with you is opening her mind to future career interests in theatre, which is so fun to observe! Thank you for all you do, keep up the great work.

– Mrs Jori Bennett

Emily and Rachel are very personable and professional. Timely communications. Really made an effort to get to know what Toby likes and have rapidly brought out the best in him.

– Dr Katie Bramall-Stainer

Gemma is brilliant, she has been amazing with Neve and her brother Luke who has been attending for 2 years. Can't praise her enough!

– Tanya McDermott

In a nutshell Molly simply can't wait for Monday's to come round again after each class. As a quiet highly sensitive girl who struggles with performing Molly has taken to Karen and Holly's infectious energy and comes out the session buzzing!! It's a revelation!!!! Loving doing the dance routines with her too!!

– Ms Lucy Thomas
