Social abilities

As well as the serious business of child development, Perform is about making friends and having fun.

Teamwork, regular sessions and the shared excitement of putting on an end of term performance - all make the perfect environment for lasting friendships to flourish.

The performing arts are all about fun, imagination, energy and working together. They're non-competitive, non-judgemental and a fantastic way to celebrate your child's enthusiasm for activities and for life.

Helping your child understand how to interact with their peers is one of the best investments you'll ever make in their future.That's why at Perform, we focus on teamwork and encourage children to build relationships that can last a lifetime.

Watch a video of parents talking about how much fun their children have at Perform.

Penelope loves Perform! She will regularly ask me how many days until Wednesday, counting down until Perform. She is very confident and independent but can shy away with new groups of people. In the short space of time she has attended Perform I can already see a difference at school- making new friends and interacting with other children at play centres.

– Miss Helen Grayer

Sylvia loves coming to Perform. She looks forward to it every week and talks about going back the next week straight after the session she’s just finished! It’s the best thing she’s ever done and she is thriving on her independence attending the class not knowing anyone from before. She has learnt all her songs , fingers crossed the enthusiasm and new found love of drama will continue for many years.
