Clubs and Social Groups.

Our clubs and socials - something for everyone
Here at the Academy Theatre, we strive to be as inclusive as possible and create a community feel. We run a variety of clubs and social groups, aimed at different age groups and different areas of interest.

For Children

Our Take 2 Performing Arts Academy caters for children from the age of 3 upwards.

We have dance classes in ballet, tap, dance gymnastics, street, and modern jazz.  There are also classes in musical theatre and drama.  Most of our students join our group classes, however, private lessons are available in dance, musical theatre, singing and a variety of musical instruments – keyboards, drums, saxophone, clarinet, piano, guitar, and woodwind instruments.

For more information about classes and timetables, please visit Take 2 Performing Arts Academy, call us, or pop in.

Lessons, Clubs, and Social Groups

from age 14 onwards
The Musical Theatre Seniors group (Y9+) work towards the Academy Theatre’s own productions. Being based in a working theatre allows our students to perfect their stagecraft and performance techniques and take part in productions which play to their individual strengths and interests.

Please don’t think that our productions are only for the young adults to take part in. If you’re interested in any area of performance, whatever your age, you are welcome to join our Seniors group.
All dance, musical theatre, singing, and music lessons are available to anyone over the age of 14.

Silver Stars Choir

If you are free on a Tuesday between 2-3pm and you enjoy singing, no matter what your ability, then why not come along to our Silver Stars Choir. We advertise it as being for the over 50’s… but if you’re younger you’re more than welcome.

This weekly session is purely for fun. It’s a chance to get out and socialise and meet new people whilst doing something you love.

Let’s Do Lunch Club

If you’d like to meet new people, have lunch, and brighten up your day, then our Let’s Do Lunch Club could be just the thing for you. This social group has been set up in association with Age UK and is held on Wednesdays at 12.30pm. Please book in advance so we know numbers for catering purposes.

If you are interested in any of our lessons, clubs, or social groups then please get in touch with our friendly team. You can contact us through this website, give us a call, or pop in. Everyone is welcome at The Academy Theatre.
