Weekend Schools, 7-18 years
Students attend a three-hour session comprising an hour of drama, an hour of singing and an hour of dance, each with a specialist coach. Jigsaw Arts provides training in all three disciplines in order to create a well-rounded performer. To establish an environment that builds confidence, regardless of individual ability, students are divided into appropriate age bands. All students will be challenged to their full potential. The three age groups rotate between the three disciplines.
There is a maximum of 18 students per class.
Students are given a practical understanding of stagecraft, as well as developing improvisation, voice and acting techniques. In addition, they will be encouraged to find the truth in their acting, enabling them to deliver more believable performances. Script work and poetry will also form an integral part of their training. Drama is a great way to build confidence and social skills through teamwork. Read more
Students learn a jazz dance technique – the basis for all dance. Our aim is to improve each student’s core stability, flexibility, co-ordination, posture and dance vocabulary. Jazz, street dance and musical theatre all feature in the variety of styles which students will perform. Read more

I have been at Jigsaw for the best part of my life and it's really changed me. It kindled my interest in all things dance drama and singing and taught me how to be more confident and professional. I will really miss something that’s been a very big part of my life since I was tiny and I will miss everyone involved so much.
