Stage 2 – (6 – 8 years)

Stage 2 - Time to get a StageAhead!  These are the the 6-8 year olds and the ones that start showing the first real glimmers of passion for the Arts.

This group is the first of the age groups to do the full 3 hours of classes (with breaks to snack of course).  They will have 1 hour of Dance, 1 hour of Drama and 1 hour of Voice. Each with a different trained Coach who will start to hone in on the individual talents of these young performers whilst keeping it fun.

They will look at as many dance styles as we can cram in from Jazz and modern to Ballet and street dance.  Not just learning choreography but also actual techniques that will help lay strong and solid performance foundations.  We will start to get them to enjoy song with many different styles from around the world and also here at home with musical theatre and pop. Finally make them explore their inner actor and engage in script and improvisation.  

At the same time the young people get to engage with others and make new friends and keep fit and healthy too.


As with all our Stages there will be a chance to perform at the end of the year with our summer show, where parents can see all the hard work the children have done.  There will be added opportunities for workshops with Waynes Industry friends from the west end and beyond and also we have plans for summer schools and extra classes to get some more strings to their bow.

Classes are held at Magnus academy from 11am to 2pm for 36 saturdays of the academic year.  That's an average of 12 weeks of classes per term.  Joining is encouraged in September so the children get the full syllabus and are not thrown in at the deep end. 

Class Fees are £200 per term (Approx £16.67 per week for 12 weeks) That's only £5.56 per hour that your child is learning new skills and having fun at the weekend.  Fees are payable at the start of each term payable by cash or BACS.  Standing orders can be arranged if you chat to Wayne.
