Strand Academy 2016

Strand Academy

For the past few years, each summer we have run a five-day performing arts academy for children in school years 3 to 9. The week includes tuition in singing, dancing, acting, percussion and covers other basics such as microphone technique, singing whilst moving, voice-projection, performance, stage set-up, prop making and show production.

The focus and highlight of the week is the Academy Show, attended by parents, family and friends of the 50 or so students. The show features the material the students have been working on throughout the week.

The academy is run by experienced and gifted trainers along with a brilliant team of volunteers who have undergone a Disclosure and Barring Service check at the enhanced level and trained in the Kings Child Protection Policy for best practice in children’s and youth work.

The 2016 dates for Strand Academy are: Tuesday 30th August to Saturday 3rd September, 9:30am — 3:30pm. Book in at
