Performing Stars - Drama School for Kids

PSA is not just another drama school for kids. It is our belief that confidence increases within a friendly, safe and sociable environment. For that reason, from our speech and drama lessons to our dance classes and our vocal coaching, we aim to produce and deliver a unique programme designed to inspire and motivate children to excel in all three disciplines of musical theatre.  Unlike many dance schools or drama schools all PSA students participate in Drama, Dance and Singing as we aim to give them the broadest possible set of skills and experiences within the full breadth of the performing arts.

Currently we offer our classes to the following locations

  • Melton Mowbray
  • Leicester
  • Burton Upon Trent

A word from the founder

"The enjoyment and success I get from teaching reflects greatly in the programmes I have devised for the Performing Stars Academy. Throughout my career I have really enjoyed working with children of all ages and learnt how much performing arts can aid them immensely in their personal and educational development. I take time and care in preparing challenging workshops and deliver them with an enthusiasm that aims to inspire the children to develop a love for the performing arts, whilst teaching them to become independent learners, developing self belief and respect for others."
