Our Drama School Performing Arts Courses

Within our Drama School, at the weekends, In Enfield or Barnet,  we offer performing arts courses for young people aged 7-15 years. They work in groups of eighteen in the same age range on acting, applied theatre, singing and dancing. In acting we cover a range of practitioners and methods. In singing we work on technique and performance, using a repertoire of musical theatre and popular music. In dance we develop ability, knowledge of movement and choreographic skills, through modern, musical theatre, contemporary, urban and commercial dance. Classes last for three hours and regularly work towards performances.

Our 16-19 year olds attend an Advanced Performing Arts session on a Thursday evening. This is intense Musical Theatre training, continually working towards the production of shows.

Students aged 4-6 years attend the foundation performing arts courses for a shorter hour and a half. Again, these take place at the weekends, but we do have a shorter one and a quarter hour session during the week.

Repertory Companies

As part of our drive to keep making innovative and creative theatre, our acting classes are undertaken within four repertory companies, where weekly, the participants play and work as actors. This is experiential learning, always working towards a production, giving students a continuous opportunity to apply new techniques as we learn. These companies are split in to four age groups and come together on Wednesday or Friday evenings.

Bodens Dance

Bodens Dance is the branch of Bodens responsible for all our dance classes outside of the performing arts courses, and dance examinations. We offer  ISTD Tap and Modern on a Monday and RAD Ballet classes on a Thursday evening. There are pre-school and primary classes in tap and ballet on Saturday mornings. On Tuesdays children can attend Street Dance classes for fun, fitness and development. Our dance students also get opportunities to perform.

These structured classes develop physical skills, musicality, expression, imagination and creativity. The classes develop coordination, an awareness of the body moving through space, sensitivity to music and emotional expression through movement. For older or more experienced students, a member of our dance faculty will be happy to assess which class will be right for a child or young person depending on age and ability.

Musical Theatre & Acting Exam Classes

In addition to our dance classes, we also offer capable students the opportunity to take exams in Acting, Singing and Musical Theatre under the Trinity College Syllabus. These classes take place during the week in smaller groups. Throughout the year we offer workshops where current students can find out more about these classes and audition for a place within them. As these classes are a subsidised opportunity, to take part in a Trinity Examination class, you must be attending at least one other class at Bodens.
