Devoted to inspiring confidence in performing arts

Shene Stage School is devoted to inspiring confidence in performing arts whilst maintaining a relaxed and friendly environment in which students can work and socialise.

All our teachers are fully qualified and have extensive experience in all elements of their chosen field. By offering sessions in Drama, Music and Dance, we aim to nurture their talents, self-confidence and enthusiasm. We pride ourselves on getting to know each child individually and help them achieve their own personal goals.

Shene Stage School operates weekly on a Saturday morning, from 10 am to 1 pm The morning consists of three sessions each of one hour in duration. In between sessions, a short break of fifteen minutes occurs, in which drinks and biscuits are provided and the children are given a chance to relax and ‘cool down’ between classes.


The children love to choose the style for the term and as a result work has included musical theatre, modern pop music and folk songs. In the summer term they wrote their own songs, including the lyrics, which they performed to the parents at the end of term. This this term they worked on repertoire and harmonies with songs that they chose together. We feel it is important for the children to learn to love music from an early age and Lucy’s extensive work with children certainly helps to encourage this.

Drama is taught by Sophie Hallett who has been teaching drama for over 20 years. The lessons are very much a collaborative process. The children and Sophie work closely together to create work developed as a group. The emphasis is for the children to feel in control of what they are doing and for Sophie to guide them to the end result. They write scripts together and work on improvisation (a definite favourite) as well as physical theatre, vocal technique, mime, mask work and above all else helping the children to feel great about who they are and what they do.

Dance is taught by Lee Harvey Robinson who has been working with Shene Stage School for over 5 years. His energy and enthusiasm is infectious and as a result he and the children produce exciting and original work they create together. As well as being a brilliant performer Lee teaches extensively in the local boroughs.
Styles include modern, jazz, hip hop and musical theatre.
