We have been providing Dancing, Singing and Drama clubs to schools for 15 years.
These clubs take place before, during and after school activities.
The children take part in an annual show and are offered extra performing opportunities such as school fetes, assemblies and Streetdance exams so these classes provide skills for life by learning new moves, working as part of a team and building up confidence within a new area which is creative, fun and aspiring.
We are very proud of our school clubs and standards that we achieve with our classes.
Our teachers are all dbs checked, have safeguarding/first aid certificates/gdpr courses and are fully trained within all three disciplines. Breaking Barriers teachers are fully insured.
We also have booking systems and full contact with the parents so the school do not have to take on any extra work, we can run the school clubs in a professional manner and this has always worked really well.
Our schools have also used out services to work with the children through P.E lessons working alongside a ‘Theme’ for that particular term and this works very well creating and engaging the children through fitness, dance and drama.
We have worked on many varied themes over the years and this all helps to:
- Improve the students Listening Skills.
- Speak up to Increase Visibility.
- Improve Presentation / Public Speaking Skills.
- Improve the children’s Emotional Intelligence.
- Improves their Creative learning.
- Uses and works on muscle memory.
- Some students engage and show thirst for learning in this alternative learning method.
- Keeps them engaged for longer.
Please contact the Principals for information regarding our school classes.

We run Drama, singing, dance and arts and crafts throughout the week for children aged 4-16. We offer half days or full days for the week. We aim to put a performance on to friends and Family on the Friday afternoon. We have our teachers visiting throughout the week. The children look forward to a fantastic week learning new skills, performance technique and meeting new friends!
Street dance is a fun, energetic activity and we work towards street dance exams yearly along with performing in our breaking barriers showcase. During the classes we dance to lots of pop music and learn many routines throughout the term!
We offer group drama lessons which are fantastic for confidence building and diction. The students will often learn warm ups and then move on to improvisation and script work. Our aim is for every child to stand up and say their lines with characterisation and confidence.
We work on the R.A.D ballet syllabus and every couple of years we enter students to take exams, where we have achieved some amazing results in the past. We also perform in the breaking barriers showcase where the students get to show their ballet skills learnt throughout the year.
We now offer one to one lamda lessons within school. The students will work towards achieving their grade within Lamda and will be examined yearly.
We have lots of fun learning songs from musical theatre, pop, Disney and any request from our students! We perform in the breaking barriers showcase using professional microphones and in the theatre. We work on our singing along with some staging for each track. Students gain lots of confidence and especially learn to project and sing correctly.
The nursery sessions consist of a dance warm up, different nursery rhymes each week, props, colours, numbers, instruments, basic dance moves i.e marching, galloping, clapping, stamping, walking on toes. rhythm and basic tricks.
