Picture this: a summer where laughter echoes through the halls, where budding performers discover their talents, and where creativity takes centre stage. Jigsaw Arts Balham is pulling out all the stops to create a summer workshop that is unforgettable.

First things first, let’s talk about the team behind the scenes. Jigsaw Arts Balham has curated a dream team of seasoned performing arts professionals who are not just instructors but passionate mentors, ready to nurture the star power within each child. From acting to singing to dancing, consider your kiddos in the best hands possible.

Jigsaw Arts Balham has teamed up with the incredible minds behind Abstract Kids, and together, they’re set to create a summer school in 2024 that promises to be nothing short of magical!

Now, you might be wondering, who are these Abstract Kids and what makes them so special? Abstract Kids is the brainchild of two Jigsaw Arts alumni, Jake and Jason, who, fuelled by their passion for drama and education, embarked on a unique journey to Thailand. Taking their wealth of experience (cumulatively 12 years between them as both students and as Jigsaw teachers), they set out to create a drama company that caters specifically to kids. And let me tell you, they’ve succeeded in creating something truly extraordinary. This dynamic duo not only share a love for the stage but also a deep understanding of the transformative power of drama in a child’s life. Abstract Kids has quickly become a beacon for young talents, nurturing creativity and building confidence in children through the magical world of theatre.

Fast forward to 2024, and these Jigsaw alumni are back in town, bringing the essence of Abstract Kids with them. Partnering with Jigsaw Arts Balham for a summer school collaboration, they’re set to infuse the vibrant spirit of Abstract Kids into the heart of Balham.

Now, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of the workshop itself. Jam-packed with a whirlwind of activities, our summer programme promises a blend of drama, singing, arts and crafts, and dance that’ll have your little ones tapping their toes and belting out tunes. It’s not just about learning the ABCs of performing arts; it’s about discovering the XYZs of self-expression and confidence. From acting and improv workshops to stagecraft and storytelling, the curriculum is designed to ignite the imaginations of young minds. And let’s not forget the grand finale – a showcase on the Fridays that will bring together the talents of Jigsaw Arts Balham and the unique flavour of Abstract Kids. Get ready to witness a performance that will have you on the edge of your seat and bursting with pride at the incredible skills your child has acquired in just a week.

And here’s the best part: no experience required! Whether your child is a seasoned performer or just looking to try something new, the Jigsaw Arts Balham workshop is designed to cater to all skill levels. It’s not about perfection; it’s about embracing the journey and relishing every moment in the limelight.

So, Balham families, are you ready to witness your child’s summer sparkle with creativity? Jigsaw Arts Balham is your ticket to a summer filled with laughter, learning, and the pure joy of performance.
