My daughter started with arts 1 at the beginning of the school year. In such a short time she has developed and grown so much. She loves going to her class every Tuesday and is always buzzing afterwards with a variety of stories about what she has undertaken. Having taken her to previous franchised schools I Would recommend Arts1 whole heartedly. The friendly staff are also a bonus!!!
I have 2 daughters who absolutely love their classes with Arts1. My eldest age 9 has been doing street dance & modern dance with 2 fantastic teachers for 2 years. She has not only learned some great skills but it has really given her confidence in herself, something which she would not have achieved by herself.

Arts1 is a place where you can build and nurture your dramatic talent. It is somewhere where you can be yourself and a safe environment where you can see continuous progress in yourself and others. I’ve had so many great experiences along the way such as performing at MOVE IT, creating a piece for National Theatre Connections which included having the chance to perform at the Royal and Derngate Theatre in Northampton. I have had the chance to watch some amazing theatre and see productions at schools that I might want to move. Furthermore I have met some amazing people who are in the industry which has helped me to start building my professional network and giving me a better idea about the different paths I can take.

The course assures no student is left behind and they are all treated equally and fairly. You learn things that you never would’ve thought you could, you think in new ways that open your eyes to different paths and ideas. The people that attend the course and fun, supportive and hard working and everyone pulls their own weight and they have to be up to the challenge for a very tough but extremely rewarding experience. It has so far been the best experience of my life.
