Our Performing Arts Classes

Musical Theatre (8-15 years) 10.00-12.00pm

These 2 hour classes Musical Theatre / Performing Arts are held every Saturday during term time in our Chelsea studios within Marlborough School. The children are taught in a clean, safe and warm environment and all our teachers are registered.  It is not necessary for parents or guardians to attend these 2 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 35 minutes of dance, 35 minutes of drama and then 35 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.
