Reading and writing

Perform can boost reading and writing skills

Research shows that children who participate in drama, dance and singing have better reading and writing skills.

This may be because they have learnt to create images in their minds while reading or developed their imagination thereby improving their creative writing. Whatever the reason, drama is now seen as essential in teaching literacy skills and giving children a lasting love of books and language.

And it's not just literacy. A study by the National Theatre showed children with experience of drama workshops scored higher in Maths SATS as well. So regular Perform classes could make a big difference to your child's performance at school.

Isabella is absolutely loving Perform classes. Gemma and Craig are brilliant with the children. The sessions allow children of all abilities to do something together. It’s a great confidence booster.

Francesco is always so happy to go to the class and comes out full of beans. He has learnt his lines and is always singing the songs.

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!!

Jess is an absolute gem, Kareena has been constantly talking about the class since the first day. A real unique way of teaching and has really helped my daughter out of her little cocoon. Best thing I’ve ever invested in.

Clearly contact with parents is built into the Perform structure, but Melissa's kindness and enthusiasm has been amazing. Melissa has been so helpful, offering great advice and being on hand to reassure Viva (and me!). I could not have asked for a better response

I am so grateful to Rhia for her excellent work. I had a positive call from my daughter's teacher, who had noticed her new found confidence since starting Perform.

– Miss Drea Daley

I have been so impressed with Katie since our first lesson - she instills such confidence in parents while instantly building rapport with the kids. Jude certainly enjoys the classes and is keen to go each week. It's a safe, welcoming environment.

– Mrs Ellie Richardson

The girls love the classes, I think Sam puts a fantastic class together, the energy is infectious!

– Mrs Amy Wilmott

It seems extremely well organised and professionally run but also lots of fun at the same time!

Lauren and her team are wonderful. My kids love Perform and get so much from it. I can't sing her praises highly enough
