West Bridgford is set to welcome a new branch of the part-time theatre school that won the backing of ‘Dragon’ Duncan Bannatyne back in 2007 on BBC’s Dragons’ Den.
Razzamataz Nottingham is launching the new sessions on Saturday 14thSeptember at the fantastic new Performing Arts Block at Rushcliffe School.
To celebrate its launch, the school will be holding an open day where local youngsters between the ages of 4-18 can come along and try the singing, dance and drama classes that will be available every Saturday during term time.
Classes are vibrant, energetic and cover all aspects of the performing arts, including Musical Theatre, Pop Singing, Street Dance and Drama.
Students receive excellent training from professional teachers, and are also given the chance to work alongside other industry professionals including West End performers, top choreographers and household names such as Ashley Banjo, Diversity and Kerry Ellis to name a few!
Every year, Razzamataz decides on a new theme to best help its students progress and achieve. This academic year, the focus is ‘What will you become?’ #BrightFuturesAtRazzamataz.
Principal of Razzamataz Nottingham, Claire Blower explains: “Razz has lots of students who have gone on to make performing arts their careers, but equally, we have many that have used the life skills they have learnt at Razzamataz to find the confidence to pursue a wide variety of jobs. Our role is to empower young people to have a positive mindset and to build resilience.”
Razzamataz is fully inclusive and encourages all children and young people to try their hand at performing arts because as well as it being thoroughly enjoyable, it has also been shown to have a significant impact on the process of improving literacy levels in children. Educational achievement aside, what performing arts ultimately give children, are the skills in which to better express themselves, leading to increased confidence and self-esteem.
Claire says “There is no pressure to perform but for those who wish to we are proud to be able to offer fantastic opportunities such as performing at Indigo @O2, Her Majesty’s Theatre and our unique Disneyland Paris experience Razzamagique. As well as our annual showcase and local performances”
