ABOUT ACT ONE BEGINNERS

Act One Beginners offers professional training in all aspects of Singing, Acting & Dance.

Our Performing Arts School was established in 2019 by Principal Leanne Wharf and her husband Greg.

Teaching students from ages 3 to 18 years allows our students to not only gain experience in Performing Arts, but also helps them to develop important social and communication skills, which they will carry though life.

We welcome ALL abilities, whether an absolute beginner or a stage regular. We encourage all our students at Act One to become one big family and help each other grow in confidence every single day.

If you are interested in joining our school, please get in touch with our Principal, Miss Leanne, who will provide you with further details about the evenings and venues available.

We offer a FREE TRIAL CLASS to all our potential students.

We also offer private one-on-one tuition for both Singing and Drama, with our experienced and DBS certified teachers.

This unique Summer School week is designed to provide students with a taste of what can be expected for those thinking of a career in the performing arts industry.
We will help you discover where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and nurture your potential in all three disciplines of Performing Art – Acting, Singing and Dance.
 
WHAT TO EXPECT?
 
Students will spend each day learning music, lyrics, dialogue, dance routines, stage positions and all other aspects of Musical Theatre. At the end of the week students will perform to an audience, on stage, showcasing exactly what they have learnt as an ensemble. This intensive week has strictly limited places.
