With over 40 years experience, Bristol School of Performing Arts is the largest and most successful of its kind in the West Country. The basis of the School’s teaching philosophy is simple -“Education through Performance”.

Don’t be fooled by those who claim to ‘teach’ talent. Talent is a gift! Good training improves that gift. If you have that gift, BSP Arts is the school for you!

What we do in class: Our young students gain confidence by engaging in group and solo drama work.

During the year, opportunities arise for students to prepare for the in-house show which is performed in the White Hart theatre. This is an excellent opportunity for them to show all they’ve learned and experience performing to an audience on stage for the first time.

Children are trained in areas of performing arts, playing particular attention to the stage and encouraging children to become familiar with the theatre.

They are taught to become spatially aware on the stage , respond to stage direction and learn a variety of techniques required to become a performer. Classes are fun and enjoyable, and our teachers passes on a wealth of performing experience and love for the theatre to their young students. Topics can include:

Improvisation - Theatre games and group activities allowing children to build their own characters and create their own stories. An important part of drama training which encourages children to explore a variety of theatre techniques and helps to build confidence.

Script work- Group scenes, duologues and monologues from old and modern plays.

Musical Theatre - Learning a variety of song and dance pieces from well known musicals in preparation for performance. Encouraging solo performances for those that wish.

Mime, movement, acting for television and presenting are some other areas of performing arts also explored.
