Well we offer professionally led performing arts activities for children aged from 2 1/2 in Neston, Wanstead (London) and Childwall (Liverpool). We believe that access to the arts should be a right for all children and not a privilege. So we offer 50% discounts for low income families. Research shows that participation in the arts improves health and well being. All of our facilitators are professional actors who bring industry standards to the rehearsal space.
In Neston at Neston Theatre School we plan to participate in the 2014 Leverhulme Drama Festival. A new approach for us but a new challenge for the staff and children alike.
Participation in the arts, specifically drama, dance and singing, for children improves self-esteem, self-confidence, team skills, literary appreciation, communication skills etc. It helps with the development of gross and fine motor skills as well as co-ordination. We also promote community cohesion by participating in local events in the Neston area.
