The power of drama

Whatever your child is like, our weekly workshops will work wonders for their confidence, concentration and social skills - as well as giving them the best fun they'll have all week.

That's because every Perform activity is designed to help your child develop essential skills in an enjoyable environment.

Whether it's a game about eye contact, an exercise to focus attention or an improvisation about making friends and understanding others, we'll put your child at the centre of everything we do.

This means that children, which go to Perform, tend to stand out in a crowd. They're that little bit more personable and self-assured. More confident in their abilities. More enthusiastic about trying new things. They're also more relaxed in social situations, more articulate in conversation and, as a result, often do better in the classroom.

Specifically, Perform classes

- develop what we call The 4 Cs -  confidenceconcentration, communication and coordination;
- encourage confident and fluent speaking;
- boost reading and writing abilities;
- enhance physical skills including coordination, agility and poise;
- inspire a colourful imagination;
- help your child make friends easily and interact well with their peers and adults.

Parents talk about the benefits of Perform

Suzie and the team are so welcoming. Sophia is so excited every week to go and comes home so happy. Her confidence has grown within a few weeks and I thank Suzie and Perform for that.

– Mr Jamie Lewis

Erin LOVES Perform! She gets excited each week, and has a great time! She is already a confident child but this has really given her a burst of life and energy and taken it to a new level.

As a music teacher I am impressed by the mixture of music and themes in each term , and I think the structure to the lessons is really great.

– Mrs Emma White

– Miss Jade Hardy

Castiel is enjoying it Perform much and I can see his confidence growing with each class. It's a real heart warmer when he comes home and tells us what he has done. The teachers do a brilliant job and I am so happy they are teaching my child. You are all wonderful!

– Ms Ije Nwosu

It’s lovely to see Rosie’s enthusiasm for the class and her embracing activities she finds challenging. It is indicative of the quality of the care and teaching that Rosie feels safe enough and free from anxiety to engage. Rosie’s autism often acts as a barrier to inclusion in activities so we feel lucky to have found Perform!

– Mrs Nicky Mcguinness

This is the first class that both my children enjoy equally and really enjoy going to. I’m delighted. I really want them to grow in confidence and the class size and Naomi’s and Ben’s infectious enthusiasm help this. 

– Mrs Isabelle Woodward

Natasha is always very excited to go to Perform. She likes the interactive app and has been spontaneously singing the songs. I think her confidence is growing due to the class and she is looking forward to the show.

– Ms Nicole Anderson

Sophia now volunteers herself for things and runs in to class every week so excited. It’s the highlight of her week. It must be down to the quality of teaching and the creative and fun themes and activities.

Dougie has never wanted to do this type of thing before and he absolutely loves going to his class! Brooklyn and Craig have made such a difference in a very short period of time. The way you work with the children and the importance on development is exactly what Dougie was looking for.

– Mrs Ivana Fituri

The teachers have been very informative and I love their passion and enthusiasm at every class. I think Perform can only be a positive for Dylan who struggles in a few areas with confidence and patience. We are definitely glad we found this class.

– Mrs Emma Pentony

Selina loves her Perform sessions! At the end-of-term performance, she had few lines and even a solo (she only joined the group three weeks ago), we’ve never seen her so confident on stage.

 

– Sonya Hallowes

Kalila really enjoys her lessons, she comes home from them full of energy and is very motivated to learn her lines. I can already see an increased level of self-confidence in her and I love the element of life skills coaching that the classes provide.

Mia has absolutely come on leaps and bounds during her time at Perform! From being a very quiet and shy girl, Mia has blossomed so well and thoroughly loves her lessons and shows. Her confidence also radiates to all other aspects of her life. Amazing!!

– Laura Townsend

I want to cry (with happiness!) as I write this. Both my children are on the autistic spectrum. Callum and Lucy are so fun and kind and talented, and the programme is so engaging, that my two can't wait to go in and are enjoying this more than anything else they do. 

– Deirdre Ferrier

Perform is my children's favourite hour of the week. They have a lot of fun and learn so many useful things for life. Jessica and Grant are absolutely fantastic, they have so much energy, are very friendly and professional. I would recommend Perform to everyone!

– Cecilia Klein

Perform is a revelation for my fairly shy and quiet twins who at times seem to lack the confidence to be heard in groups. Such an amazing class and it's even more amazing watching their confidence grow as they develop new skills.

– Helen Dalgleish

Roberto absolutely loves Perform! He asks at least three times a week, "Mummy, is it Perform today"? I can hardly believe how quickly he has taken to it and even his school teacher has noticed a difference in his confidence. We are delighted he is enjoying it so much.

– Mrs D Monk

Oliver has really enjoyed Perform. He has only had good things to say about the classes. It is apparent that the teachers are very enthusiastic and work hard to involve all of the children.

I have been really impressed with the confidence that Perfom has given Mary. Within 5 weeks she was standing in front of an audience singing her Rapunzel song! She loves coming to Perform.

Ella loves perform! Her school teacher has remarked that she has started to use much more expression in her reading and I'm certain that this is thanks to Perform. 

– Mrs Holly Gregory

Anja is enjoying the classes very much, and I've already noticed more confidence in Anja speaking to adults using her loud and clear voice :-)

Wonderful, exactly what my eldest needed to boost her confidence at the awkward " self awareness" stage of development, she can't wait to get there each week.

– Sue Richards

Perform has helped my shy daughter come out of my shell and gives my outgoing son an outlet for his exuberance (which can sometimes be frowned on at school). We all love it.

– Lucy Kihlstrom

Alana is really enjoying it and I feel that it is helping her to express herself. I noticed that her speaking is clearer.

– Justine Lee

I have noticed that Beatriz finds it easier to learn her lines for her school plays, she is confident and loves going to Perform.

– Joana

I love the content and the social skills that my child is being taught. He is now running in to class after having to be peeled off my husband for the first couple of weeks.

– Cara Collins

I love that the priority with Perform is the development & well being of each child rather than pushing them to "perform" without considering their enjoyment. Both of my children are so happy in class and develop week on week.

– Becky Waller

I love the way that they respond to Leo's specific needs and encourage him to speak out, to move and dance and build his confidence through such positive responses to his efforts.
