Believe Performing Arts
Come and join our exciting performing arts school for ages 3 and up based in Rochford, Essex
At Believe Performing Arts our mission is to build confidence and to inspire our students to believe in themselves and their dreams. It is very important to us that our students are cared for in a friendly and nurturing environment.
We offer students the chance to study a wide range of dance styles and performance techniques. The disciplines we teach are Ballet, Tap, Modern, Musical Theatre, Singing and Street Dance. We offer optional graded examinations and the opportunity to appear in shows. We believe every student is unique and talented in their own way and we strive to help them to reach their full potential and shine like the stars they are!
All of our staff are DBS (formerly CRB) checked, highly skilled and qualified members of the ISTD, which is one of the world’s leading dance examination boards, a registered charity and membership association since 1904.
Shows & Examinations
For each discipline, the children work through a syllabus choreographed by ISTD which is recognized worldwide. It improves strength, flexibility, coordination and musicality preparing the young generation for the professional industry if that's what they desire.
When they are ready, there is an optional exam that they can take if they want to.
The syllabus is accredited for the more advanced the grade is, enabling the children to use the UCAS points from their exams to further their education.
Uniform, Attire & Costumes
Believe Performing Arts branded apparel and merchandise including t-shirts, hoodies, tracksuits and more can be ordered from us upon request (prices on our uniform list), these are of course optional.
For our staged shows and performances, costumes are essential as the kids are performing to the public. They are purchased from us and kept by you! Designs and prices of costumes are available near the time of the relevant shows.
Fetes, Trips & Festivals
Throughout the academic year, we organise public performances in various schools, theatres and halls to give the children the variety and opportunity to perform to the general public. We have performed at the Palace Theatre, Orchid Theatre and the Cliffs Pavilion to name a few, with audiences up to 1,600 people! This is a really exciting and rewarding experience for the kids, helping build their confidence and team spirit in performing live.
We have organised trips to London's West End shows, organising transport and offering great discounts. Seeing these shows in these impressive theatres with grand sets and costumes gives great motivation and inspiration to our young performers for what they can aspire to achieve!
