Stage School

Stage School  2 - Home Page

TACT teaches singing, acting, dance and music for children from age 4.

Our stage school has three age groups: beginners, juniors and seniors. We teach performing arts creatively through workshops and have planned a curriculum to engage and inspire children and young people to be the very best performers they can be.

Our stage school is the most popular part of our offer and is designed to prepare our senior students for progression to professional vocational training at prestigious drama schools.

Beginners: Reception to Year 2
Juniors: Year 3 to Year 7/8
Seniors: Year 8/9+

Dance School

graded syllabus dance

We teach ISTD ballet, tap and modern to young dancers from age 3 onwards. The ‘stage not age’ approach applies to graded dance so children and young people enter classes at the appropriate grade for their ability.

Our ISTD qualified staff ensure that high standards and the discipline of dance education pervades all the work that happens in our dance school.

We produce musicals, plays and concerts throughout each year. Our theatre company produces a diverse range of theatre, from popular musicals to Shakespeare plays. Our main theatrical homes are Oakengates Theatre and the Wrekin College Centenary Theatre. 

Our brilliant youth theatre company never cease to amaze us with their talents and ability to bring stories to life!
