Dakoda’s Dance Academy is proud to introduce our ‘NEW’ Sunday Musical Theatre classes at our More House School in Knightsbridge. These FUN, ENTERTAINING AND ENERGETIC performing arts classes are available for children between 4 – 16 years every Sunday afternoon during term time.
Musical Theatre Minis (4-6 years)
Musical Theatre Minis is an lively, fun 1 hour class every Sunday for our Minis. The pupils learn all styles of dance, drama and vocals, adapted from West End and Broadway shows appropriate for their age. They will be taught the correct technique for all three disciplines, along with learning how to act through song and characterisation. This is a great way to introduce younger children into the arts.
All classes are taught in a safe warm environment by our fully qualified registered teachers. At the end of the term parents are allowed to watch how their child has progressed.
Musical Theatre (7-16 years)
These 3 hour classes are held every Sunday during term time in our Knightsbridge studios within More House school. The children are taught in a clean, safe and warm environment and all our teachers are registered. It is not nessesary for parents or guardians to attend these 3 hour performing arts classes. This allows you the freedom to have a few hours to yourself knowing your children are safe and well looked after. Within the class pupils learn all styles of dance, drama and vocals, adapted from West End and Broadway shows. The first 15 minutes consists of a physical warm up, which then moves on to 45 minutes of dance, 45 minutes of drama and then 45 minute singing/vocals.
The three disciplines are broken down in to three lessons and then added all together to create a performance at the end of the term. The children learn correct technique for all three disciplines, along with learning how to act through song and characterisation

Trinity College Exams
Students from the age of 5 attending classes with DDA on Sundays are offered the opportunity to take Musical Theatre examinations with Trinity College London as well as take part in our yearly performance in a West End Theatre.
Trinity College London is the international exam board for performing arts and English language, providing assessments around the world since 1877.
Examinations are not compulsory at DDA and children can continue to take Musical Theatre classes with us without taking exams. However, as most children within our Musical Theatre classes learn the required work, we encourage children to take this opportunity.
If they pass, then children receive a beautiful certificate and result forms.
