Classes are daily after school hours and on Saturdays all day and are held in the new Park Studios in the grounds of Tring Park School. Entry from age 3 to 8 years is without audition and we aim to find a class or classes exactly suited to our pupils.
We want to teach our pupils how to dance, how to progress and also enjoy themselves. As well as RAD syllabus classes at all levels we offer free classes for most classical students. The modern, tap and jazz is very varied and also gives students the opportunity to study for ISTD exams and the fantastic and fun Jazz Awards. The contemporary style is aimed at students age 12 and above.
Baby Ballet and the junior levels are available at least twice a week with a wide range of classes on Saturday.
Students explore many aspects of drama and singing. Older students cover scripted work and play building which incorporates musical theatre skills. The Performance Singing classes start at age 9. Our aim is for all pupils to gain confidence and learn a variety of vital skills required for theatre work.
Tring Park School for the Performing Arts offers world-class training in excellent facilities. Our team of top-class teachers offer a marvellous opportunity to be part of this.
