This NEW class has been developed specifically for students aged 12-16 who love musical theatre and want to have some fun through performing pushing their skills to the next level!
Each class will be jam-packed with musical theatre song and dance routines where students can really let their hair down and unleash their ‘jazz hands’.

Fridays 5.30-6.30pm Highcliffe School Parkside Road


Advanced Acting Classes with Miss Sam, run straight after Advanced MT 6:30-7:30pm.


Our class is about confidence building, learning to speak clearly and to develop self confidence. This is such an important skill for later life, whether your child wants to perform professionally one day or work in another field, being able to communicate effectively is vital to success. In our drama classes we cover specialist classes in Acting for Stage & Screen, but we also cover posture, physical presence, character building, text work, breathing, grounding, vocal technique & support, all intrinsic parts of future development.


Learn to express yourself through movement, as well as the necessary technique work we will cover routine, improve skills in maintaining choreography and performance skills!


In these classes we cover choral and harmony work, develop breathing techniques, and encourage pupils to remember that singing is just a step on from speaking in tune…we believe that everyone can sing! Our classes equip pupils with musical theatre skills, as well as contemporary and pop!

Classes can be paid monthly or termly



“My daughter started doing drama with Sam at 7yrs old. She was very shy and didn’t like performing or speaking in public. She is now a super confident 8 year old and about to sit her first LAMDA exam. She has enjoyed Samantha’s classes enormously. It has given her confidence and this has impacted on all areas of her life. Sam’s classes are all about confidence, growing ability to focus individually and to work as a group”
