Kaleidoscope is a performing arts company with a difference. We are based in Sussex and most of our classes are in Lewes and the surrounding areas. We are proud to be chosen as the performing arts partners of Priory School due to our high quality teaching and excellent reputation. We offer a range of weekly Drama and Dance classes for children and adults at Priory School, Wallands School, Lewes New School, Lewes YMCA and at Barcombe Village Hall. What makes us stand out?
- The quality of our teachers – we always employ highly experienced teachers who are professional performing arts artists/qualified teachers. We have in-house training for our staff, with frequent lesson observations and feedback to develop their practise.
- Our communication to parents – we email and talk to parents directly with show dates and rehearsal schedules etc. so everyone is clear what is happening.
- All of the children in our classes get a part in our performances, not just the same children playing the main parts all the time. Each child is given the opportunity to take on a role suitable for their ability.
- Each project is planned in detail by our staff and our lesson plans are differentiated to take on board the needs and ability of each child in the class.
- We offer the children frequent opportunities to contribute their own ideas to the work, so they are not just told what to do. Kaleidoscope children have a say in the work, they take ownership of it and our teachers help them shape those ideas.
We also offer:
- Arts Award training for students who would like to do it. (UCAS points available for some of the Arts Award qualifications)
- Private one-to-one tuition in Drama and Dance.
- Drama exams for those who would like to do them.
- Inset Days for schools.
- Tailor made, curriculum based Drama or Dance workshops/schemes for schools.
- Directing of community theatre productions.
Bookings are now open for Summer School at Priory School from Monday 27h July to Friday 31st July, 2015. We are currently expanding and we will be offering many new classes at venues across Sussex this year.
