West End Performing Arts Course

Are you looking for a fun and exciting new challenge over the holidays? Do you dream of being a future star of London’s West End? Come and expand your confidence and skills at our hugely popular ‘West End at Windermere’ performing arts course.

West End at Windermere is designed for children who enjoy singing, dancing and acting to develop their skills and have fun.

Throughout the performing arts course, your child will receive full supervision from our expert director Ashley Johnson and his team. Activities will include learning choreography in our specialised dance studio, singing songs as a group, and if they are brave enough, a solo, and acting in both improvised and scripted scenes.

At lunchtime, children will have their lunch on the terrace, with space to run around and have some fun. At the end of the week, an informal Showcase of work will be performed in the theatre, Crampton Hall. Friends and family have free tickets for the Showcase which will begin at 4pm.

This performing arts course is suitable for everyone, from beginners to experienced performers. Just bring along your enthusiasm and, of course, your best singing voice and dancing feet!
