Drama & Dance
Have a look here to find drama and dance classes for children in Brighton, Hove and some parts of Sussex. There is quite a variety of dance classes from ballet, tap, modern, jazz, to streetfunk and hip hop. The drama schools vary too in their approaches to the art form. There are positive qualities of both drama and dance. They can really inspire children and help to build up their self esteem, confidence and self awareness as well as being enjoyable too! There are also physical benefits: dancing is a great way to exercise the body and it's a good outlet for stress whatever age you are! Children will benefit from making new friends and build on their ability to cooperate in a group. Please mention Kids in Brighton when you ring one of the businesses you see here, Thank You.
We are Dramatherapist, Sally Orr, and Experienced West End Performer, Debbie Spellman, and we started Drama Queens over 10 years ago to encourage & develop children' confidence, creativity and performance skills.
We do this through our unique lessons, workshops and performance opportunities. We run after school and Saturday lessons, plus holiday workshops for girls and boys from the age of 2-18 years.
Our friendly teachers are CRB checked, first aid certified and of course fully qualified for their teaching roles. We have strong links with West End performers, choreographers and local theatres enabling us to offer plenty of performance opportunities within the local community, but as we say at Drama Queens, "It's all about the journey!"
