Where Pop Meets Musicals
Popsicals provides children between the ages of 4-16 years with rounded performing arts training, as well as building social skills and confidence within a group. Whilst encouraging children to reach their full potential is important, Popsicals is all about the fun side of performance, the passion of music, the pure enjoyment of movement and not about technique, grades, or exams. Each child will gain vital skills that can be used in any career path including, spatial awareness to work with others, voice projection and courage to speak in front of a room full of people in lectures or meetings, memory recall skills, the commitment to work in a team, and showmanship to take pride in a project. Any child who attends a Popsicals workshop need not have any previous dance, drama or singing experience. Popsicals prides itself on the inclusion of all children.
All staff hold an enhanced DBS, are fully insured, first aid trained and are incredibly caring! For more information, please do not hesitate to contact Laura.
