About the session...


Performing Arts Club is a fun session exploring different musicals and themes through dance, singing, drama and lots of games!


Focusing on a theme over a term or half-term the performers learn dance routines and songs step-by-step building on it each week until at the end they have a performance piece to share! We also often work collaboratively in teams to create drama scenes and dance routines of their own.


While this club is more technique focused, it’s not about being ‘perfect’ and we pride ourselves on providing a safe space for performers to be themselves without judgment.


Many of our performers have joined this club after trying mainstream alternatives and finding it ‘not quite the right fit’. Expect high energy, focused listening time, a chance for the performers (and parent/carers) to make friends and a whole heap of fun!   

This club is aimed at those with a lower/moderate level of support needs and is fantastic for sensory avoidants who thrive in more structured settings!

Dance Routine.png


  • Each week we practise our dance routine and build on it.  

  • Dancers often get to put their own moves into the dance too! 


Break time 

  • 5/10 minutes to have a drink, use the toilet and socialise!  

Drama Games.png

Drama or singing 

  • This changes each week and is either a drama-based game or an opportunity to work in a team to create their own drama scene OR we will sing a song! 

  • Occasionally, we will have time to fit both in – it depends on what we’re working towards at the time.
