Dance Curriculum

TPA has a clear mission and is committed to providing an excellent standard of teaching via highly trained and professional teachers within excellent facilities and resources.

RAD syllabus ballet classes are available at all levels as well as non-syllabus classes for all ages.

Students studying tap and modern are entered for exams within the ISTD syllabus, whilst contemporary, jazz, street dance, acro and musical theatre (dance) classes do not follow a set syllabus.

Singing and Acting

Students explore many aspects of acting and singing. Older students cover scripted work and play building which incorporates musical theatre skills. Singing classes are tailored to group sizes and may include choral, ensemble and group singing.

The TPA singing and acting classes offer students the opportunity to explore many aspects of both genres in a challenging and supportive environment.

Please fill out the appropriate form below and we will be in touch to ensure you are booked on to the right class for your ability. Pupils aged 9+ must submit an audition for entry, those aged 3-8 can register without audition. Please refer to the ‘Upcoming Audition Dates’ section below.
