Welcome to

Inspire Theatre Workshops

Confidence For Life

Inspire Theatre Workshops provides innovative, exciting Performing Arts classes to children and teenagers. Passionate about child development and nurturing our students' confidence, our workshops are designed to boost social and performing skills through Drama, Dance, and Singing.

What We Offer
 

Inspire Theatre Workshops was founded in 2017 by Jen, a trained Actor and Performer from Fife, Scotland. Having over 15 years experience of teaching children in a variety of forms, ranging from coaching gymnastics, to teaching drama, dance and singing for various child development companies to leading children's birthday parties, Jen is delighted to be introducing her exciting new venture - brand new Acting, Singing and Dancing weekly workshops for

4 -16 year olds. Her simple aim - to help children realise their full potential.

"I have done quite a few different classes and groups with my children but this is without a doubt the most professional, well run and organised, by far. Jen is fantastic. She is enthusiastic, professional and my son adores her. She runs the class excellently. My son has had many more mature group leaders at other classes previously who do not command nearly as much respect. The classes are a great balance of discipline and fun and my son comes out completely engaged and enthused. It's a great end to his week and start to the weekend!"

4 - 7 s  Curriculum

Move & Express

This energetic section incorporates dance with quick reaction games and yoga-inspired balance and stretch exercises. All the activities are designed to improve children's coordination, core stability, rhythm, strength, balance and posture. Children will also benefit from greater self-assurance and confidence. 

Listening & Voice

Using a humorous approach and lively

exercises our Vocal Warm Ups allow 

children and teenagers to lose their 

inhibitions quickly. Working closely on vital Communication skills such as listening, concentration, projection, expression, clarity and diction, this is a fun way of helping Students to develop strong, healthy, confident Voices for both on stage and in everyday life.

Explore & Create

Our drama section, where children explore their imaginations and embark on high-energy, thrilling adventures. We believe children learn best through play so that's why we explore characters, storylines and enjoy role-play improvisations. We can see a real increase in children's attention, confidence, creativity and speaking skills through this section.

Our Goal

Achieving Great Things Together

At Inspire Theatre Workshops we strive to create a program that is engaging and responsive for every Student in a caring and supportive environment.

 

With a real focus on child development, which we believe to be just as critical in teenage years as it is in early years, our aim is to instil real confidence, self awareness, improved social and communication skills and a sense of well-being into our children. Using fun improvisation exercises and a humorous approach our unique workshops help children lose their inhibitions and insecurities quickly, and learn to deal with potentially difficult real-life situations better.

 

In a nutshell... the dance and movement section works to improve posture so children walk taller, exude confidence and posses a stronger sense of self-awareness, while the singing and voice section helps promote a strong, healthy voice and improve diction and clarity, and finally the acting and improvisation section works to boost confidence in social situations, improve communication skills, encourage spontaneity and creativity.

 

At the end of every term Students will perform to an audience of family and friends to showcase their work over the term. Putting on a show is a fantastically rewarding experience and children gain a huge sense of achievement and a real confidence boost from taking part! The skills our children and teenagers will learn won't just equip them to perform well in front of an audience, but to perform better in all aspects of everyday life.

 

I'm so excited to finally be able to revisit some of the amazing techniques I learned at drama school and pass them on to my students, to put my own spin on performing arts classes and offer something exciting and different to children and teenagers!
