In-School – StageSchool Ireland
“Junior StageSchool” classes (90 minutes per week. 4 to 6 years)
Ideal for mini performers! (90 minute classes, 30 minutes of dance, drama and singing)
With two teachers and seventeen students, a perfect introduction to the world of musical theatre and playtime!
“Senior StageSchool” classes (3 hours per week, 6 to 18 years)
Ideal for 6 to 18 year olds. We recruit a total of 45 students, (divided by age in classes of fifteen), one group learns to sing, the other to dance and the third has drama. When hour is up, students rotate so by end of session, they have trained in all three disciplines giving an all rounded arts education. Taught by many of the country’s leading practitioners which creates a fun and vibrant atmosphere. Parents and children feel that electricity! We set high standards so students and teachers work hard but always with a sense of fun and achievement. This complements school wonderfully.
The ultimate arts educational programme to complement school..
We offer two annual presentations for family and friends plus written reports for parents in the summer term. We have fundraised and performed for numerous local and national charities over the last decade and have appeared in numerous theatres around the country and overseas. While we are very proud of the students that have achieved success professionally, the vast majority of children come for confidence-building educational lessons and a chance to make new friends.
Clapperboard Junior Film School
We are proud to have a long history of successful and quality short films with our partners, GMIT and The Huston Film School at NUI Galway. This developed into quality Acting For The Screen workshops in our normal drama classes as well as a new course for 8 to 11 year olds and 12 to 18 year olds. Our intensive, dynamic young film makers course offer three terms covering film history, production, screen writing, film making, editing, animation and finishing with a fully filmed project for a showreel or digital media. Class sizes are kept to just 14 students and early booking is advised.
